Lecture with music examples.

“A PROGRAMME CONSISTING OF CHORAL PRELUDES? But no one performs them in concert halls, or even in organ recitals. They must truly be ’wrong music’! Yet among them are some of the finest gems of Western music, hidden treasures. We can enjoy them if we do not fear to tackle theology, poetry, learned music and our own prejudices – they are music that can move us, grip us, enchant us. We will never be the same again. Do we dare surrender ourselves to these works?”

Duration 1,5 H. No interval.
