Performer Composers

Notes & Reviews:

This recital by the Canadian-born organist and choral conductor Maxine Thevenot presents more than a few unusual works. Of particular interest to organ fanciers will be the Sonata Giojoso by the Australian Barrie Cabena, and the Five Liturgical Inventions of Victor Togni, a native of Tanzania who was born of Swiss parents. His early death in 1965 of a car collision robbed the music world of a promising composer and organist. This is the premiere recording of the work. Maxine Thevenot enjoys a thriving career performing in Europe, Great Britain and North America. She performs from a wide-ranging repertoire that includes many works written specifically for her. Her principal organ teacher was McNeil Robinson, whose Hommage a Messiaen is included on this disc. Among the other composers whose works she has premiered are Stephen Paulus, Malcolm Archer, Hayes Biggs and Iain Quinn. Since September 2005, Ms. Thevenot has served as the Associate Organist-Choir Director at the Cathedral Church of St. John in Albuquerque. She has also given lectures, workshops and master classes including presentations on Canadian organ music and the organ works of Mozart.
