Afternoon seminar

A Journey through the sounds of the unique North German Baroque organ, and a celebration of the 30-year anniversary of the Göteborg International Organ Academy.

Harald Vogel, Germany

This afternoon presents an opportunity to explore the concept and sounds of the North German Baroque organ built by GOArt and inaugurated in 2000 (Arvidsson/van Eeken/Yokota). Harald Vogel will guide us through the unique sounds of this instrument with William Porter at the console. The significance of this instrument in relation to the music of the North German organ repertoire will be addressed, and important perspectives on the new edition of Dieterich Buxtehude’s organ music presented.

In the second part of the afternoon seminar, reflections on the journey of the Göteborg International Organ Academy (1994–2024) will be given by a panel including William Porter, Annette Richards, Kerala J. Snyder, Harald Vogel and Joel Speerstra, followed by a discussion of new important projects and goals for the future.
