NEW! This lecture-demonstration will focus on representative organ works by Johann Sebastian Bach: their different forms, how they were constructed, and, especially, how they were intended to sound and affect listeners. The music will be explained in terms of the extraordinary Rudolf von Beckerath pipe organ, which was built in 1961 in Hamburg, Germany, in North-German-Baroque style. The strong link between Bach and this type of organ will be explored.
