Dismantling organ Sneek

The church council of the Protestant Congregation in Sneek has developed a plan to make the Martinikerk future-proof and multifunctional with a renovation. In the design by architect Kijlstra-Brouwer from Beetsterzwaag, the elliptical, green extension between the bell tower and the church building stands out. Much is being renovated and added on the inside. Therefor the choir organ was disassembled and stored at the organ builder.

Gerben Mourik - Improvisations - St. Eustache, Paris

improvisations parijs

This CD was recorded in the Saint-Eustache in Paris, on the famous Van den Heuvel organ. This time, a unique approach has been chosen: Themes of well-known composers such as Bach, Brahms and Debussy are processed in various forms (such as a series of variations, collage or symphonic poem). The CD program also includes a romantic Adagio, a Triptych on themes by Thierry Escaich and a Suite about the folk songs of the Netherlands and France. You can order the CD here.
