Die Orgel

One of the world's best choirs in musical dialogue with focus artist Iveta Apkalna on the organ: an ideal prerequisite for a programme that combines spherical choral and organ sounds, but also rhythmically gripping works from the early Baroque to the modern era and once again allows all the qualities of the Tonhalle organ to shine at the end of these organ days.

The International Organ Festival Zurich 2024 is curated by organist and focus artist Iveta Apkalna and Prof. Tobias Willi, in consultation with Dr Hans-Peter Fricker, President of the Friends of the New Zurich Tonhalle Organ Association.
