Rudolf Lutz Organ Recital

August 9 (Fri), 2019 Start 19:00, Open 18:30

The first appearance at Art Tower Mito by the Swiss organist and harpsichordist Rudolf Lutz (b. 1951), who also serves as artistic director of the J.S. Bach-Stiftung in St. Gallen, Switzerland. Renowned as one of the premier performers of Bach’s compositions, he is now engaged in a project to perform and record the composer’s complete vocal works. The all-Bach program at the August performance at ATM will let listeners enjoy the multitude of colorful tones of Bach’s organ masterpieces, including “Air on the G String.” He also plans to involve members of the audience as they decide upon the melody to serve as the theme of an impromptu performance of his on the organ. The concert will be a chance for everyone to fully savor the true charm of the virtuosity of Rudolf Lutz, famous as the “impromptu magician” of Switzerland.
