Works by E.T.A. Hoffmann, Franck, Mendelssohn and Hensel
As an author, E.T.A. Hoffmann founded the Romantic musical aesthetic - and composed himself! Even though he appreciated the organ, unfortunately no organ works by him have survived. In this concert, however, we will hear an arrangement of Hoffmann's Piano Sonata in F minor, which can be performed very well with the orchestral colors of the Hook organ.
In the year of E.T.A. Hoffmann's death, the great organ composer César Franck was born in Liège, who was to lead the Romantic art of organ playing to its peak in France, and whose 2nd Choral in B minor will be heard alongside Hoffmann's work.
The program will be complemented by works by Fanny Hensel and Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy, who composed groundbreaking works for the organ.
