welcome to my website giving you information about my biography, current concerts, CD recordings and other publications.
The Musikproduktion Dabringhaus & Grimm (www.mdg.de) has published in 2017 two new CD releases from me, an SACD with the organ works by Samuel Barber and a double-CD with the concertos for organ solo op. 56 by Felix Nowowiejski.
The Barber CD, recorded on the great Schuke-organ (III/68) of the Hochschule für Musik Detmold, has attracted a great deal of attention, especially in the United States, since it features some previously unpublished organ pieces by Barber, which can be heard here for the first time. The so far published reviews are available below.
The organ works by Felix Nowowiejski (6 CDs in total, details of the individual CDs under 'Publications') were recorded on the four-manual historical Sauer organ (IV/100) in the Cathedral of Bremen. With this double CD, the first complete recording of the organ works by Felix Nowowiejski is now finished. Detailed information is available below. I would like to draw particular attention to my new edition of the Organ pieces op. 9 by Felix Nowowiejski, which are being re-released here for the first time after many decades and are now worldwide accessible.
In the category 'Publications' you will find some recordings under 'Music' (e.g. the early organ cycles of Olivier Messiaen or the complete organ works by Johannes Brahms), which I can now also offer as vinyl records in the LP format.
In the section 'Sheet Music' you can see my own editions of organ music (eg previously unreleased organ pieces by Franz Lachner) as well as a number of organ transcriptions, including my adaptation of the 'Rhapsody in Blue' by George Gershwin and some early orchestral works by Anton Bruckner, beginning with the 'Four Orchestral Pieces' (1862).
The 'Other Publications' section provides further publication, such as individual articles from periodicals and encyclopaedias (e.g. 'Handbuch der Orgelmusik' or MGG) on certain musical themes as well as printed brochures on major concert projects ('Messiaen-Tage-Coesfeld' in the presence of the composer Olivier Messiaen in the year 1980, 'Rheinberger Music Festival 2005') or the pianist Prof. Hans-Martin Theopold, my former teacher at the Hochschule für Musik Detmold.
