Matthew Dirst is Professor of Music at the Moores School of Music, University of Houston, as well as Founder and Artistic Director of Ars Lyrica Houston, a Grammy-nominated ensemble that specializes in Baroque chamber and dramatic works. He is the first American to win major international prizes in both organ and harpsichord, including first prize at the American Guild of Organists Young Artist Competition (1990) and second prize at the Warsaw International Harpsichord Competition (1993).

Noted for his stylish playing of Baroque music in particular, his recent performances of Bach’s «Goldberg Variations» were praised as «an extremely taut and accurate traversal» (The New York Sun), «a technically dazzling, deeply moving performance» (Houston Chronicle), «of irresistible rhythmic impulse [and] dazzling virtuosity» (Dallas Morning News).

Dr. Dirst will display his virtuosity on the four-manual 97-rank von Beckerath at Saint Paul Cathedral.

The concert will run approximately 90 minutes.

Presented in cooperation with the Saint Paul Cathderal Concert Series.

Tickets available at the door (cash, check, or card).
