Organ Concert: Albrecht Koch - Tuesday 16th October
Albrecht Koch, born in 1976 in Dresden, comes from the tradition of the Dresdner Kreuzchor. He studied sacred music and choral conducting in Leipzig. His teachers Arvid Gast, Martin Schmeding and Morten Schuldt-Jensen Courses with personalities such as Roy Goodman, Ewald Koiman, Lars Ulrik Mortensen and Hans Fagius complemented his studies. Since 2008 Koch has been Cathedral music director and cathedral organist in Freiberg, Saxony, where he is entrusted with the organ of 1714 from Gottfried Silbermann´s organ workshop, one of the most important Baroque instruments of the baroque period. He has met with manifold recognition for his discovery and revival of forgotten works from Saxony´s music history. With his Freiberg Cathedral Music Ensemble and chordae freybergenses he also explores the original sound of the Renaissance preserved to the present day in the form of the angel instruments in the burial chapel of the Wettin family in the Freiberg Cathedral from 1594.
