Concert Reviews

CLEVELAND
Alan Morrison, Head of the Organ Department at the Curtis Institute of Music in Philadelphia, played an elegant recital on Sunday afternoon, January 9, at First Baptist Church of Great Cleveland. His technical facility is astonishing; where most organists might leave their "big piece" for the end of the concert, Mr. Morrison started with one of the biggest in the organ repertoire, Marcel Dupré's Prelude and Fugue in B Major, Op. 7, No. 1, and moved on from there. It was a program of showstoppers."

BIRMINGHAM
"(they) could not have chosen a better organist than Alan Morrison...As well as an exacting technical player, the professor from Curtis Institute in Philadelphia was visionary in his choice of colors and ability to shape music into lucid forms, and provided plenty of bravura when called for."

PHILADELPHIA
"In every piece, Morrison kept his instrument under restrained, precisely calculated control, so that he and the other musicians created a perfectly balanced blend."

PHILADELPHIA
Verizon Hall - Fred J. Cooper Organ Marathon
"Alan Morrison's offering proved to be the finest, most consistent playing of the day."

CLEVELAND
"...a rising young virtuoso of flawless technique and refined taste... Playing most of his repertoire from memory, he communicated a sense of pleasure that lifted the music beyond the notes. " 
The Plain Dealer

SALT LAKE CITY
“Concert organist Alan Morrison knew the 4,000-plus pipes of the Eccles Memorial Organ in the Cathedral of the Madeleine like old friends. His way of combining colors and timbres made Sunday’s recital the highlight of the cathedral’s summer organ festival thus far.” 
The Salt Lake Tribune

CHARLOTTE, NC
“If more music lovers heard the king of instruments played the way he [Morrison] did, more might believe it really deserves the nickname. Nimble and fearless, [Morrison] easily made Leo Sowerby’s Pageant and other virtuoso vehicles take flight.” 
The Charlotte Observer

2002 AGO CONVENTION
“Morrison’s performance was riveting, as was his entire recital…” 

“Masterful command of registration and a deep understanding of the work characterized Morrison’s playing of Duruflé’s Suite, opus 5.” 
The Diapason 

“a program of grand masterworks played with the surety of, well, a grand master…”
