Demers completes her programme with a piece which isn’t by Bach, but which couldn’t have been written without him. Marcel Dupré wrote his Three Preludes and Fugues in 1914, in a Paris on the brink of war.
Dupré was inspired by Bach’s technical refinement, but created three 20th-century organ works that bring with them terrific momentum and scintillating display. Like Bach’s trio sonata, each asks for feats of technique that seem almost beyond comprehension.
