Maximilian Schnaus (Berlin) plays works by Reger, Widor and Susteck. In many places, the new year is ushered in with fireworks. At the same time, the turn of the year invites us to pause. Both aspects, looking back and looking forward, pausing and moving on, are reflected in the traditional New Year's Eve organ concert in the Sophienkirche.
