Sunday October 1, 2017, 11.00 h. | Fokker organ XL! | Small Hall

Especially for this concert, the unique acoustic Fokker organ is expanded with digital stops. A variety of realistic organ sounds (tuned in the 31-tone system) are added to some late-romantic works that require more organ stops than the Fokker organ has. Because of this digital expansion, organ works from the 19th and 20th century can be performed perfectly in meantone temperament, for the first time in music history. Fokker organist Ere Lievonen will be accompanied by Maarten Havinga. Tickets at the box office of the Muziekgebouw. Read more here.
