Pulling Out All the Stops

Air date: Sat., Sept. 12, 9:00 pm

 

This program chronicles the competition onstage and behind-the-scenes of 10 extraordinary young organists from the United States and Europe vying for first place in the first International Longwood Gardens Organ Competition. None of Longwood’s 10 finalists has a chance to practice on the Aeolian Organ before arriving at the competition. Each has only five hours to prepare to play on one of the world’s most complex instruments, with its 10,010 pipes, 237 stops, five 32-foot pedal stops and four keyboards.
