Jacob Reed, organ

Jacob Reed, organist, is an eleventh-grade student at East Chapel Hill High School and studies organ with Dr. Van Quinn, organist/choirmaster at Chapel of the Cross.

He gave a wonderful organ recital earlier this afternoon. It's hard to believe he's only been studying the organ since July 2009. He's a musical genius, as far as I'm concerned. I'm sure he'll go far if he chooses to make the organ his career.

Here is his program.

Fantasy and Fugue in g minor (BWV 542)—J. S. Bach (1685–1750)

Organ Sonata Nº 3 in A, Op. 65, Nº 3—F. Mendelssohn (1809–1847)
I. Con moto maestoso
II. Andante tranquillo

Trois Pièces pour Grand Orgue (1881): I. Fantaisie in A major, M. 35—C. Franck (1822–1890)

Prelude and Fugue on B-A-C-H, S.260—F. Liszt (1811–1886)
