There’s no such thing as improvisation 
Free to Battle of the Organs ticket holders David Bednall shines a light on the art of improvisation, its history, how to do it, and whether it exists at all.
Thursday 15 June | 7.30pm | Clifton Cathedral BATTLE OF THE ORGANS 
Malcolm Archer & David Bednall

Tickets: £12

Festival favourites, organists Malcolm Archer and David Bednall, return to the Clifton International Festival in a high-energy showcase of music for the king of instruments. But which of the three Cathedral organs will be crowned?


Listen and be amazed as themes from traditional plainchant to Disney take on a new lease of life, re-imagined by two of the country’s most skillful improvisers before your chance to choose the tunes you’d like to hear under their fingertips.


You won’t miss a second of the action followed on the big screen as the organists go head to head in this fast-paced feat of musical skill and agility.
