SACRED MUSIC HOURS: AN EVENING IN LUZERN
August 29, Tuesday
St. Casimir’s Church, 19:00
SUZANNE Z’GRAGGEN (organ, Switzerland)
A Lucerne School of Music professor, organ festival and MittWortsMusik concert cycle artistic director, regularly performing soloist, winner of many international competitions and organist at the Lucerne Jesuit Church – this is Suzanne Z‘Graggen.
The performer admits that her acquaintance with the organ began as an ordinary coincidence. Yet, upon hearing and seeing this instrument for the first time, she understood that this was to become her path in life. Z‘Graggen is still enchanted by the immense spectrum of sounds produced by the organ, its dynamic potential, unique handling and rich repertoire. Thus, she puts together her concert programmes so that these very aspects will be revealed in all their beauty.
The programme to be played in Vilnius will delight the most selective sacred music fans, as in the hands of this musician even the most well-known works acquire a unique colour.
Programme features Signe Lindeman, Mons Leidvin Takle, Johann Sebastian Bach, Dietrix Buxtehude and others.
