SAN FRANCISCO: Christopher Smith, Special Events Chair of the 129th AES
Convention has announced that celebrated organist Graham Blyth will perform a solo recital at SFâ€™s Cathedral of St. Mary of the Assumption on Saturday November 6, 8:00 – 9:00pm.
A perennial AES Convention highlight for 17 years, Blyth will perform on the famed Ruffatti Organ. Considered one of the worldâ€™s finest pipe organs, the magnificent instrument consists of 4842 pipes on 89 ranks and 69 stops. Rising dramatically from its soaring pedestal platform, it was built in 1971 by Fratelli Ruffatti of Padua, Italy. Designed with the Baroque repertoire in mind, it is considered as much a work of art as the music it produces. more
