Events

On Dec 15, 5 PM, the organ will be part of the Advent Music Series of St. Mary’s church. Karl-Bernhardin Kropf will play pieces of “baroque glamour” and improvise on seasonal hymns.


“Unmögliche Orgelkonzerte/Impossible Organ Concerts”, Nr. 1

The bad state of the organ does not really allow for concerts, but there shall be occasional “impossible organ concerts” to keep up the fascination of organ music in live performance. The public will be allowed to join the player on the organ loft and to enter the instrument during playing. First concert will be Messiaen’s “Nativité du Seigneur” on Jan 11, 2020, 4 p.m., performed by St. Mary’s organist Karl-Bernhardin Kropf, who studied this work with Messiaen himself.


On Nov 9th, the organwas played within a chamber choir programme with Kurt Hessenberg’s chorale fantasy on “Sonne der Gerechtigkeit”. Mostly the 1938 pipework was used, which gave nice effect.
