On August 4, 2017, I gave a recital on the stunning Sauer organ in Berlin's Cathedral. Built in 1905, this instrument with 113 stops on four manuals is Wilhelm Sauer's largest organ. Everything is kept in its original condition, including the tubular pneumatic action, the three free combinations, and the 'Walze'.
I had a terrific time on the Jehmlich organ (III/56 stops) in Schneeberg's Cathedral: it's a powerful instrument in a stunning acoustic - just listen to these big chords at the beginning and end of Rheinberger's Introduktion & Passacaglia rolling back and forth in the nave, but also to the very poetic Doppelflöte in Reger's Benedictus - it was a real treat, and I hope you'll enjoy listening to these two excerpts from Saturday's concert!
In addition to the magnificent Jehmlich organ, Schneeberg has a lot to offer: Cranach altar from 1539 in the cathedral, picturesque buildings in the city center, and the beautiful countryside are just some of its highlights...
A couple of pictures from my 40-hour trip to Dallas, TX, for the inaugural solo recital on the wonderful Juget-Sinclair organ in Christ the King Catholic Church: I loved the fiery reeds, the enormous dynamic range of the two swell boxes, the poetic jeu de tierce & foundation stops...
Too bad that the acoustic of the church is far from being as generous as it should be for such an instrument, but they said that they are going to improve it!
