American virtuoso Paul Jacobs is renowned as “one of the most supremely gifted organists of his generation” (Chicago Tribune). In a rare appearance in Oxford, he plays a programme of German organ music, with music by Brahms, Mendelssohn, Reger and Bach.

Performing on Merton’s Dobson organ in the beautiful acoustic of the Merton College Chapel, this promises to be a truly memorable event.
