The Merseburg Organ Days are taking place for the 52nd time, with the magnificent Ladegast organ of Merseburg Cathedral taking centre stage.
In 2022 we commemorate the 350th anniversary of the death of the most important German composer of the 17th century - Heinrich Schütz.
It is the 125th anniversary of the death of Johannes Brahms. His songs, choral and organ works are also frequently encountered in the programmes of the 52nd Merseburg Organ Festival.
We will also commemorate the 225th birthday of the great song composer Franz Schubert with a mass at the first festive service of the Organ Days, a night concert in the cathedral and chamber music in the baroque church of Burgliebenau.
Composer, conductor and writer - ETA Hoffmann, a multi-talent, died in Berlin in June 1822, 200 years ago. Who doesn't know the story of the "Nutcracker and the Mouse King", to which Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky wrote his famous ballet music? Excerpts from it in a version for 4 hands and 4 feet for organ open the "Fairytale Music Night", through which Axel Thielmann accompanies us with texts by Ernst Theodor Amadeus Hoffmann.
One of the innovators of 20th century Protestant church music is also commemorated: the Leipzig composer and church musician Johannes Weyrauch, who saw the light of day 125 years ago in Leipzig.
The two oratorios "Paulus" and "Elias" by the composer Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy, who died 175 years ago, will form the framework of the 52nd Merseburg Organ Festival from 10 to 18 September. In a special way, these works by Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy, who died so early, reflect the struggle for the "right path" in life and in faith: the path from Saul to Paul, the courage of a prophet who proclaims uncomfortable truths, as in art and culture - always also topical in the reality of our lives.
