Matthias Havingha (NL)

It is a program full of drama and deep feelings of despair, anger and helplessness, but also of trust and hope, admiration and noble commemoration. There is music by Jan Pieterszoon Sweelinck and Johann Pachelbel, but also by Franz Liszt, Jehan Alain and Maurice Duruflé: the works are strongly linked together by quotations and themes. Chromaticism is the common thread of the program

Jean-Baptiste Monnot (FR)

Between consciousness and unconsciousness, the fate of feelings. Music by its narrative dimension awakens a multitude of feelings in the soul of the listener. Its architecture, its discourse, its texture are similar to the content and setting of a story that would be told to us and that would immediately probe the complex mysteries of our sensibilities. The individual imagination is constantly solicited: we become, without our knowledge, actors within the very music we listen to. Johannes Brahms, Robert Schumann, Franz Liszt, Marcel Dupré and Jean Guillou.

Bart Jacobs (BE)

The art of variation is an ancient practice. As early as the Renaissance, composers began to use existing songs and melodies to explore harmonic, rhythmic, and stylistic possibilities through variations. With great works with variations by Johann Sebastian Bach, Felix Mendelssohn, Charles – Marie Widor, Jehan Alain and Maurice Duruflé, all the registers and colors of the Grenzing organ are exploited: the titular organist Bart Jacobs shows all his love for the art of variation.
