Music of the World’s Cathedrals: Matthias Giesen (organ, Austria)
20:30 - 22:00
01.04.17 (Sat), 20:30

Music director at the basilica of St Florian
Matthias Giesen (organ, Austria)

An organist from Austria, music director at the basilica of St Florian (where Bruckner himself was organist once upon a time), balancing on the unsteady bridge between two cultures, plays Shostakovich on the organ. The terrifying passacaglia from “Lady Macbeth of the Mtsensk District” demonstrates the hell of human passions. It’s us who create our own Apocalypse. But there is still hope for the world as long as it possesses Bach’s Toccata and Fugue. Having realized this truth, we may enjoy the rest of the concert, having in store for us quite a lot of beautiful music.

Program: D. Shostakovich, J.S. Bach, C. Franck, F. Liszt
