Event has already taken place. Bach, Stravinsky, Vierne and even more fabulous music are on the programme when the phenomenal organist Isabelle Demers visits Gothenburg.
Canadian Isabelle Demers is an extraordinary organist: she has a full-fledged technique and is known for playing by heart, a phenomenal ability that has made her a sought-after concert organist in the United States and Canada.
Now she is coming to a unique guest performance in Gothenburg to challenge the Concert Hall’s new, extraordinary Rieger organ in music by, among others, Bach and the romantic organ legend Louis Vierne. But not only that: she also tackles Stravinsky’s Three Movements from Petrushka, one of the most difficult pieces to play, and the French eccentric Charles-Valentin Alkan’s etudes for the pedal, pieces played with feet only.
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 weakest, solitary tone to massive chords that make it vibrate in floors and walls. It will for sure do so in the Great Hall in Gothenburg Concert Hall when the sound from the over 9000 organ pipes fills the room.
All this thanks to the cooperation between the real estate company Higab, Göteborg international organ academy, and Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra which makes it possible for us to finally experience a world-class concert hall organ, built by Rieger Orgelbau in Austria. The instrument is so big that some of the organ pipes have been built in under the audience in the salon – when you sit on the parquet you feel the vibrations from the bass pipes!
Under två festliga veckor i oktober 2021 gavs det över 70 konserter på den nya konserthusorgeln!
