More than 50 public events in 14 days full of wonderful music! The world-famous Improvisation Competition, recitals by top organists and ensembles on the renowned historic organs of Haarlem, Alkmaar, Doesburg, Zwolle, Zutphen, Rotterdam and Leiden, international specialists on Reger, Italian repertoire and contemporary organ music, public masterclasses and lectures. All this - and lots more - awaits you in this edition of the International Organ Festival Haarlem. For further information and tickets click here.
On the very first evening of the festival, the organ is centre-stage as an instrument for much more than organ music alone. The festival will open with a spectacular performance of Carl Orff’s Carmina Burana, and with Slagwerk Den Haag and Jan Hage at the organ you are hardly likely to miss the orchestra! Wijnand van Klaveren has written a wonderful arrangement, and leading soloists Heleen Koele (soprano) and André Morsch (baritone) and the professional singers of Consensus Vocalis directed by Klaas Stok guarantee an unforgettable musical experience.
The concert begins with a brand new composition by Daan Manneke, the imposing and spatial Aube (2015-16) ‘pour quatre choeurs et orgue’ to texts by Arthur Rimbaud, in which the forty-strong choir will be accompanied on the organ by Leo van Doeselaar.
