Wayne Marshall: Widor & Dupré

Part of Classical Season 2018/19

Wayne Marshall returns to Royal Festival Hall to perform two major French organ works and an improvisation on submitted themes.

He puts the organ through its paces with Widor’s mighty Sixth Symphony, which opens with the massive allegro for full organ and ends with a dazzling Finale, and Dupré’s authoritative Second Symphony, with its breathless Toccata and vigorous pedalling.

The concert concludes with an improvisation on submitted themes. If you would like to suggest a theme, email your suggestion to, with 'Wayne Marshall' in the subject line. The submitted themes will then be reviewed by the artist and organ curator, and revealed on the night.

Associate Artist and organist at the Bridgewater Hall in Manchester, Wayne Marshall has appeared at Southbank Centre as an organist and to conduct Chineke! orchestra.

He is Chief Conductor of WDR Funkhausorchester in Cologne, Germany and has recently conducted opera at venues including the Washington National Opera and the Dallas Opera.
