Christoph Sietzen & Christian Schmitt

Tue 12. 4. 2022
Aula of Neue Universität Heidelberg

As an organist, you can virtually draw on your own resources and put together your own orchestra. But that is not enough for the internationally sought-after Christian Schmitt. He also likes to team up with other musicians, here with the Luxembourg percussionist Christoph Sietzen. Together they immerse themselves in Sofia Gubaidulina's »Detto«, give it their everything in Saint-Saëns' impressive »Danse Macabre«, and bring along a new piece composed for them by Swedish composer Andrea Tarrodi. With Maki Ishii's »Thirteen Drums« and Bach's famous organ passacaglia, everyone gets their big solo.
