Course 4: Wolfgang Zerer: North German repertoire for organ

The focal point of 17th- and early 18th-century organ art was to be found in the north of Germany, in cities such as Hamburg and Lübeck. Famous virtuosos such as Dieterich Buxtehude, Nicolaus Bruhns and many others, together with famous organ builders such as Schnitger, set the standard here for high-quality German organ art that culminated in the genius Johann Sebastian Bach in the 18th century. This North German repertoire will be discussed during our Summer Academy, which will be played in full regalia on the Müller organ in the Bavo Church.
Woof gang Zerer was appointed professor of organ at the Hochschule für Musik und Theater Hamburg in 1989; he also teaches at the Schola Cantorum Basiliensis and the Prince Claus Conservatory in Groningen. He is a sought-after performing artist and teacher worldwide.
