janvanwingerden250x250The Dutch organist Jan van Wingerden (1950) studied piano with Piet Meijer and organ with Ben van Oosten and Daniel Roth and other teachers. Due to the extensive knowledge of these virtuosos, Jan van Wingerden is a master in applying organ techniques and registration to his playing. His musical depth and liviness give make his playing powerful in expression. Due to his strong personality, each work has his own specific character. Partly because many international contacts, he became close friends with the Praque organ virtuoso Jiri Ropek. Inspired by the impressive playing of this organ virtuoso, he developed a great interest in Czech organ music. After he had studied many works, he planned to make these Bohemian organ compositions more widely known by producing this cd, which happens to be a worldwide première. In order to adequately do justice to these works, it was necessary to use a large symphonic organ with many nuances. The choice was inevitably the Van den Heuvel organ in the Nieuwe Kerk in Katwijk aan Zee.

Oliver Messiaen http://vandenheuvel-orgelbouw.nl/en/cds/item/309-oliver-messiaen.html http://vandenheuvel-orgelbouw.nl/en/cds/item/309-oliver-messiaen.html Oliver Messiaen

Jan Hage - organist

The year 2008 will be celebrating Olivier Messiaen (1908-1992) birth year, one of the greatest composers of the 20th century. Messiaen composed not only organ works but also extensive repertoir for orchestra, piano, chambermusic and opera. His works are strongly coloured by his faith which resulted in very personal, modern and colourful music. In his orchestra- and organmusic he extensively used new soundcombinations often based on bird songs. From 1931 to his death he was organist of the Sainte-Trinité in Paris. In 1989 he made acquaintance with the Van den Heuvel-orgel at Sainte-Eustache and considered it the ulimate example for his musical languange.

Jan Hage (1964) studied with Kees van Eersel, Jan Welmers at the Utrecht conservatorium, Muziekwetenschap at the Royal University of Utrecht en Churchmusic at the Nederlands Instituut voor Kerkmuziek. He recieved several prizes and a phd in Muziekwetenschap. Futhers studies were done with André Isoir in France. He won several competition prizes were he excelled in modern en temporary repertoir.

In dedication of the Prof. Dr. G. van der Leeuw-foundation Jan Hage recorderd this Messiaen-CD an the Van den Heuvel-Orgel (80IVP) of the Nieuwe Kerk, Katwijk aan Zee. The colourful stops of this in 1983 constructed organ can be heard in the well known compositions of "L'Ascension" (1934, Quatre méditations symphoniques pour orgue) and "Les Corps Glorieux" (1939, Sept visions brèves de la Vie des ressuscités).

The Art of Organbuilding http://vandenheuvel-orgelbouw.nl/en/cds/item/339-the-art-of-organbuilding.html http://vandenheuvel-orgelbouw.nl/en/cds/item/339-the-art-of-organbuilding.html The Art  of  Organbuilding

J.L. van den Heuvel Orgelbouw 1967-1997

The CD Features a 36-page full colour booklet, with specifications, discriptions and photographs of 11 of the finest Van de Heuvel instruments. They include the sensational organ for St. Eustache, Paris, together with the magnificent 32' organs at Nieuwe Kerk, Katwijk aan Zee; Victoria Hall, Geneva and St. Franziskus, Munich. Also included are Van den Heuvel organs at the Duke's Hall (Royal Academy of Music) in London, the Royal College of Music in Stockholm and six other organs in Holland.


"Die Interpretation bewegt sich auf einem niveau, das man auf ein jubiläumsgaben selten antrifft... mach er im Umgang mint den Klangressourcen der Großartigen Orgel nich Organistenträume wahr...? Diese Veröffentlichung is für den Freund guter Orgel-CDs ein Fest" [ORGEL INTERNATIONAL march 1998]


The early instruments show already a striking distinction in sound with the prevailing neo-baroque conceptions at the beginning of the seventies. The valuable and approved technical building principles from the earlier glorious period of Dutch organ building were indeed applied by Van den Heuvel, concerning the point of sound however, he gradually went a different way, which was increasingly influenced by the symphonic aesthetics from the great French organbuilder Aristide Cavaillé-Coll. Jan L. van den Heuvel designed for each of his organs its own sound character and personally provided the voicing.

The organs on the celebration CD represent the different artistic stages in de 30 years existence of the Van den Heuvel company. The different instruments are a resounding example of the development, that the organbuilder in this period has gone through. A development, that hasn't reached an end and undoubtedly shall continue in the future

On behalve of the various international organists, that have cooperated with great enthusiasm on the realization of this sound document, I would like to congratulate the brothers Jan and peter van den Heuvel on their Anniversary and wish that even more magnificent instruments may be added to their opuslists in the future.

Katwijk aan Zee, Dutch Reformed Nieuwe Kerk (80/IV/P, 1983) http://vandenheuvel-orgelbouw.nl/en/cds/item/393-nieuwekerkkatwijkaanzee-en.html http://vandenheuvel-orgelbouw.nl/en/cds/item/393-nieuwekerkkatwijkaanzee-en.html Katwijk aan Zee, Dutch Reformed Nieuwe Kerk (80/IV/P, 1983)

The organ in Katwijk aan Zee persuaded the "Societé Académique d'Arts et Lettres" in Paris to bestow their "Médaille d'Argent" upon Jan L. van den Heuvel in 1984 for his contribution to the Art of French organ building.

The organ in the Nieuwe Kerk in katwijk aan Zee was constructed in the period 1981-1983. The instrument is situated behind a historic organ case dating from 1822 and was until delivery of the Van den Heuvel organ in St.Eustache, Paris, the largest organ ever built by a Dutch builder.

{gallery}orgels/katwijk-aan-zee-nieuwekerk/montagehal{/gallery}

Both key and stop action are mechanical. The enture instrument was designed and voiced by Jan L. van den Heuvel. The Grand-Orgue, Récit and Pedal have barker levers. Jaap van Rijn functioned as consultant and as principal organist of the church he performed the commemorative service for the organ on May 19th 1983.

Daniel Roth gave the dedication recital on May 20th.

{gallery}orgels/katwijk-aan-zee-nieuwekerk/jan{/gallery}

The organ possess four manual divisions of 56 notes and a Pedal of 30 notes. The Positif has 18 stops, the Grand-Orgue 19 stops, the Récit Expressif 18 stops, the Echo 7 stops, the Chamade 4 stops and the Pédale 14 stops, altogether 80 stops and 5.168 pipes. Remarkable are the three 8 ranks Cornet Composées: in 32' on the Pédale, in 16' on the Grand-Orgue and in 8' on the Positif.

{gallery}orgels/katwijk-aan-zee-nieuwekerk/speeltafel{/gallery}

The console is very rich designed and is made in French romantic tradition with at the left of the key boards the 'Jeux de Fonds' and right the 'Jeux de Combinaisons'. The internal layout of the instrument was not easy because the case itself is quite small. Most of the instrument found a place in the tower of the church. The front picture shows the swell doors above the front in the tower. Behind these doors the Récit Expressif is located on two wind chests. Just under the Récit Expressif the Chamades are located in horizontal position. The Grand-Orgue is located were it should be: in the center of the organ also on two wind chests. Above the console the stops of the Echo can be found together with the Barker levers. On the left and right side of the Grand-Orgue the reeds of the Pédale, behind the Grand-Orgue the Jeux de Fonds and mutations are found. The Positif finds it's place in the case in front of the organ loft which was entlarged.

The wind supply of the divisions consist of 11 folding belows and four Swiss Meidinger blowers. The wind pressures are as follows:

  • Grand Orgue: 87 mm
  • Positif: 74 mm
  • Récit Expressif: 94 mm
  • Echo: 70 mm
  • Chamade: 116 mm
  • Pédale:
    Soubasses: 91 mm
    Foundation stops 16', 10 2/3' and 8' : 100 mm
    Mutations 6 2/5'-4': 88 mm
    Reeds: 105 mm
  • Barker levers: 124 mm
