March 1, 2015 | Masato Suzuki, Fokker organ / Sauer organ and more

Concert Fokker organ | 2015-01-18, 11.00 hours | Small Hall - Muziekgebouw aan 't IJ, Amsterdam

The day of the ingenious organ

'The day of the ingenious organ' is a collaboration of the Huygens-Fokker Foundation, the Muziekgebouw and the Orgelpark, wherein the computer-controlled organ is put in the spotlight. There will be a concert in the morning and the afternoon, respectively in the Small Hall of the Muziekgebouw (11.00 hours) and at the Orgelpark (14.15 hours).

Especially for this day Masato Suzuki will return to the unique Fokker organ as a guest performer. Besides J.S. Bach in meantone tuning, music from the early Baroque period, a composition of Henk Badings and an improvisation by himself, he will also perform a new work for 31-tone organ, computer and electronics by the British composer Rose Dodd, who has a strong interest in the mystical Scandinavian sound world.


One can order tickets at the Muziekgebouw aan 't IJ for both concerts. A passe-partout is possible.
