Organist Anna Lapwood recently signed a major label deal with Sony Classical and has released an EP of film transcriptions recorded on the organ of the Royal Albert Hall. Lapwood says, Over the last 11 months, I’ve been lucky enough to be let into the Royal Albert Hall in the middle of the night for practice sessions on the hall’s magnificent organ. As I’ve explored the strange, beautiful, and wonderful colors that it has to offer, I’ve written a set of new film music transcriptions with that specific instrument in mind, capturing some of the magic that I feel in that iconic building after hours.” The 27-year-old from a small Oxfordshire village has been making waves with her exciting approach to organ playing, awakening the senses of young and old alike, opening the gateways to classical music and shining a light on an often under-appreciated instrument.
