Six leading organists get together to play French and German music that shows off the new organ’s fantastic timbres and mighty dynamics. The concert includes ground-breaking and traditional works by Messiaen, Batiste, Guilmant, Franck and Brahms as well as moments of improvisation and a première of Molly Kien’s new work Arcticidae. Organ music of pure gold from three different centuries.
The organ is called the “Queen of Instruments”, and for a good reason: no other acoustic instrument is so varied in sound and dynamics, from the most subtle, solitary note to massive chords that make floors and walls vibrate. This is aptly demonstrated by the new, world class Rieger Orgelbau organ with two keyboards, 112 stops and over 9000 pipes.
