Organ Recital Series: Robert Parkins
Robert Parkins is the University Organist and a Professor of the Practice of Music at Duke. His solo recordings have appeared on the Calcante, Gothic, Loft, Musical Heritage Society, and Naxos labels. Salome's Dance, his most recent release, elicited the following comment from a reviewer in American Record Guide: "His playing is expressive, musical, technically accomplished, [and] uses the instrument superbly, [demonstrating] a fine ear for color-something many organists would do well to emulate." This year's recital of "Music for the Lenten Season" will feature works by early Italian and Spanish composers, as well as music of Brahms and J. S. Bach, on the Brombaugh and Flentrop organs.
