With mallets and pipes

They only need two instruments to make entire orchestral compositions resound: the two exceptional talents Christian Schmitt on organ and Christoph Sietzen on percussion. When they pull out all the stops, sonorous paintings with clattering skeletons by Camille Saint-Saëns build up, but also virtuoso cascades of sound by Jean Langlais - because each of them knows in his own way how to elicit fine nuances from his monumental instrument. They have already performed several times as soloists at the Wiener Konzerthaus, and now they can be heard here for the first time as a duo. The program also includes the premiere of »Poseidon«, a work for organ and percussion by the Swedish composer Andrea Tarrodi.
