Peeters: Organ Concerto, Op. 52

 

Stephan Pollhammer (organ)

Danubia Orchestra Óbuda

We can hear an unconventional production from organist Stephan Pollhammer and Danubia Orchestra Óbuda. There is a marvellous work in this recital: the second organ concerto in D minor by Flor Peeters. Flor Peeters’ organ concerto in D minor was written in Antwerp during its liberation by British troops in 1944. It is not only one of his best-known works but one of his most open and joyous compositions.

Between 2007-2014, the 22-year-old organist Stephan Pollhammer took multiple first and second places at the ‘Prima la musica’ competition at regional and national level. He came first at the international Maria Hofer Organ Competition and Rheinberger Organ Competition in 2019. The audience welcomes Danubia Orchestra Óbuda to the stage of the Liszt Academy as partner of the organist. The ensemble never limited themselves to the borders of classical music, instead making regular ‘excursions’ into other musical genres.
