Tue 12 September - Fri 15 September 2023 with Prof. Dr. Martin Sander

On the occasion of the 150th anniversary of Max Reger's birth we are working on two outstanding
instruments of the German late romantic period - the practically unchanged
preserved Furtwängler&Hammer organ in the Verden Cathedral and the
Sauer organ in the Bremen Cathedral.

With Prof. Dr. Martin Sander (Munich / Basel) we will work on works by
works of Max Reger according to the free choice of the participants in a balanced

The course is aimed at students, full-time and part-time church musicians.
