The Grand Organ at The Basilica of St Patrick in Fremantle will be unleashed in September when Dominic Perissinotto uses 4 keyboards and pedals, 6000 pipes spread over 87 stops, the term given to each individual sound on the organ, at what will be a spectacular solo concert, Creator.

The concert is the third in a series of four for Pipe Organ Plus which is celebrating its 17th anniversary this year with Dominic’s annual solo concert promising to be a show-stopper with French-themed music filling the Basilica.

Fresh from touring Victoria for a series of 4 concerts over 6 days, traveling 1300kms, including the annual Warrnambool Organ Festival and a fourth visit to Pella, a church in the middle of a field in the Mallee Region.

Dominic will provide audiences with a range of musical experiences that will relax, excite, astonish and leave you wanting more. Physically, it is a hugely demanding concert with literally hours of practice and enormous performance stamina required to present the challenging musical scores.

During Creator, audiences will be not only be able to experience the acoustic of the Basilica but they will also be able to see Dominic playing the grand organ with two cameras in the organ loft projecting onto TV screens in front of the pews - a visual experience which has proved very popular with previous audiences and one which gives a rare glance into the loft.

So what can audiences expect from the Creator programme?

“This concert is my opportunity to play some of the great organ works and to unleash (so to speak) the grand organ, one of two organs in the Basilica, and the largest pipe organ in Western Australia!” Dominic said.

“On this occasion I have chosen two iconic works from the French Organ School, one showing the beauty and ornateness of the period associated with the time of Louis XIV and the other from the development of the organ into a grand symphonic style. It is a concert full of French flavour and colour.”

The name for the concert, Creator, resonated for Dominic because of the connection between the music and it’s centricity to Catholic worship.

“The Couperin is the core parts of the Mass which, in present day liturgy are spoken or sung, but at the time of Couperin they were played on the organ, alternating with singing, as will be in the concert. The Durufle is work is based on an ancient hymn about the coming of the Creator, God on earth, whose Mass is celebrated daily.
