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.
In addition to virtuoso works by Max Reger and Johann Sebastian Bach, Maximilian Schnaus will play Dominik Susteck's "Organ Labyrinth," commissioned for the 50th anniversary of the Sophienkirche organ. Susteck's communicative and pictorial music has a strong spiritual dimension and encourages reflection on the dimensions of time.
