    Contemporary music for organ
    Beckerath organ, Marlborough College Chape

    Following her triumphant, critically-acclaimed Bach series, international concert organist, Margaret Phillips in an unusual departure, playing music form the late 20th and early 21st centuries in a program featuring a number of works written for, or premiered by Margaret Phillips.

    This is the first solo recording of the new four manual Beckerath organ in Marlborough College Chapel.

    ‘On ‘Capriccio’, Margaret Phillips chooses a handful of works by composers  ow well into their fifties and beyond to demonstrate her not inconsiderable virtuosity and her innate handling of often quite demanding scores. It is thrilling to hear Sebastian Forbes’s Haec dies and Lionel Rogg’s Hommage a Franz Liszt delivered with such breathtaking panache in the somewhat intimate surroundings of Marlborough College Chapel; and, as a delightful mo ent of repose in all this aurally assertive music, the Dutch composer Ad Wammes presents charms aplenty in his minimalist Miroir.’

    Gramophone March 2015

    'It (Hommage a Franz Liszt) may have been written with the composer’s own playing skills in mind, but Margaret Phillips is every bit Rogg’s  equal in terms of sheer virtuosity, and this is a dazzling display both of her playing and of this resource-rich 2006 Beckerath organ.‘Margaret Phillips is at her best in this repertoire and plays brilliantly’'
    International Record Review September 2014

    'Her choice of registration in each and every piece never fails to complement the music and elevate it to the next level....the Beckerath instrument itself is the main attraction. It sparkles at the top and speaks boldly at the bottom end. And not surprisingly, the well engineered Regent recording captures all of the above with ease, and sits you directly in the chapel's sweet spot.’       Classical Music Sentinel August 2014
