Spanish baroque music at Midday, Oct. 4th

DMA candidate Anna Steppler will perform a program of music for the Spanish baroque organ in Anabel Taylor chapel at 12:30 on Wednesday October 4th. If there were one repertoire that is far too little known, it is organ music of the Iberian peninsula in the long 17th century, an enormous body of sophisticated and exciting works, many by composers almost completely unknown today. Anna’s program will include some of these, as well as music by Pablo Bruna, Francisco Correa d’Arauxo, and Juan Cabanilles.
Anna Steppler is originally from the United Kingdom and is in her second year of the DMA program at Cornell, where she studies with Annette Richards. She began playing the organ on becoming the Nicholas Maines organ scholar at St Jude-on-the-Hill, the large parish church of Hampstead Garden Suburb in North London, in 2008. She holds a first class degree in Music from Merton College, Oxford, where she was organ scholar from 2010-13. Following this she pursued a Masters degree on the Organ at Högskolan för Scen och Musik, Gothenburg University. During her time in Sweden, she studied the organ with Hans Fagius and clavichord with Joel Speerstra, and was awarded the Carl Larsson Scholarship for Music in 2015.
As ever, entrance is free and all are warmly invited.
