English professor Douglas Murray improvised a symphony on Lenten and Easter Themes at the West End United Methodist Church last week. The event took place as part of the church’s Lenten Concert Series. In the program notes for the event, Murray pointed out that until printed music became readily available in the mid-19th century, most keyboard music in cathedrals and large parish churches was improvised; all pianists improvised in concerts. Murray, a prize-winner in improvisation competitions in 2012, 2014 and 2017, is engaged in a project to maintain and extend the art of improvisation. The concert can be viewed here.
