Report on the concert given by  Balasz Szabó on October, 19. 2014.

"Man of the  year" from Budapest  was a brilliant interpret of works by Reger on the Walcker  organ.

Balazs Szabo auf der E.F. Walcker-Orgel in Neuhausen  a.d. FildernThe Neuhauser  E.F. Walcker organ dated 1854 has a relatively sticky to move, originally  preserved tracker action based on the cone-valve chest technology. To play dizziness  causing works written by Max Reger on this organ, one must have a special  affinity with this almost daring combination and also be a gifted virtuoso. Balász Szabó was born  in Budapest in 1985. He is assistant  professor for organ-playing at the Ferenc-Liszt university in Budapest. In a passionate  concert he could demonstrate his passion for Walcker and Reger. Here the music of  Reger finds, "in a certain qualified sense concerning the infinitely variable  dynamics, its tonal native country, ", Szabó said at his interesting  introduction before the concert. Szabó mentioned  that in Neuhausen this "risk" can only be accepted with 2 well trained stop  pullers. The stop pullers  "must deliver the same performance like me". This was a nice  and fair gesture towards the assistants of the concert. And there was really enormously much to do for them.

The concert  started with Reger introduction and passacaglia from the 1st suite Op. 16. The massive  introduction was followed by the passacaglia starting pianissimo. Here already the  audience got familiar with the big tone colour pallet of the Walcker organ. The great end  increase tied directly to the tutti of the introduction. Two quiet works  written for organ followed.

The meditative  piece of "Angelus" from Liszt and the piece "ave maris Stella" with in unison  passages, long pauses and breaks really worked as prayers. The great  echo of 5 seconds in the parish church contributed positively to the musical effect.

Works from the composer Alexandre-Pierre-François Boëly (1785-1858, Paris) can be seldom heard. From Boëly then the "Fantasie et Fugue Op.18 Nr.6" in the style of the late Viennese classical period could be heard. In unbelievable speed Balász  Szabó swept over the keys  of the organ which has  approximately the same age like  Boëlys Fantasie et Fugue.

Highlight of the concert  has been Reger's fantasia about the  chant of "Wie schön leucht'uns der  Morgenstern" Op. 40 no. 1. The approximately 25-minute monumental works written for organ demanded full concentration from the  organist, the assistants, but also from the audience, ("the morning star" mentioned by organists simply and  respectfully). Reger has an  inimitable, extremely change dynamic tone language. By cunningly  playing whole passages in the octave on the manuals Szabó optimally made full  use of the sound of the organ. The organ  tone was suffused in the church room  until end of the excellent work. In this  way one can seldom hear  it.

After the end of  the final chord a long, cliff-hanging pause lay in the air. A great applause  then however expressed the enthusiasm about this young organ virtuoso.

Burst of applause for the  "Ludwigsburg Festival  Brass"

New Year's Eve concert in 2014 as a  felicitous conclusion of the concert year

Das „Ludwigsburg Festival Brass“ in der Apsis von St. Petrus und PaulusFor the 11th time the festive  New Year's Eve concert took place in our parish  church. The turn of the year into the year 2015, which will be the year  of the 10th anniversary of our series of concerts, was done solemnly by  particularly brilliant brass player music. The wind  formation "Ludwigsburg Festival Brass" played instruments in a shiny  instrumentation. In some pieces,  the formation has been accompanied by district cantor Martin Kaleschke at the  organ. Amongst other  works Kaleschke played solo in a "chorale prelude akin to Jazz" written by  Volker Bräutigam (born 1953)". He knew how to transpose the variants  with the broad sound spectrum of the E.F. Walcker organ virtuosoly which are tangy and  composed imaginatively on the chant "Nun freut euch liebe Christen gmein".

4 trumpets  (Hubertus von Stackelberg, Klaus Ulrich Dann, Sebastian Zech, Paul Jacot), horn  (Harald Domes), 2 trombones (Matthias Jauß, Friedrich Mück) and tuba (Fabian  Zürn) unified into brilliant, rich Sound. Works of  Pachelbel, Strauss, Mendelssohn and Gigout filled the large  parish church. For  the over 500  concert-goers the tones  became a true ear treat.

Das „Ludwigsburg Festival Brass“ auf der Orgelempore mit Bezirkskantor Martin Kaleschke an der OrgelThe audience  particularly liked the smart  arrangements and variations of the contemporary 62-year-old composer Stephen Roberts. These were arrangements over  "classics of the classical music" like Mozart's  "Alla Turka", Beethoven's "Elise" and Brahms "Hungarian dances". The noticeable  pleasure of the "Ludwigsburg Festival Brass" when playing these pieces  immediately jumped over towards the audience. A great applause was granted to all musicians at the end  of the concert. The enthusiastic audience still could  elicit an encore from the windplayers.

The encore  rounded off contemplatively  the evening. The hymnal  piece "Highland Cathedral" resounded in  a lovely arrangement. The encore  let goose-flesh atmosphere in  conclusion arise and rewarded the  "Ludwigsburg Festival  Brass" with a renewed approval storm.

Invitation for our festive New Year's  Eve concert 2014

Foto vom Silvesterkonzert 2013 mit Blick auf die ApsisWe cordially invite you to  our "festive New Year's  Eve concert" which meanwhile already became a tradition.

You will be able to hear the Ludwigsburg Festival Brass and  district cantor Martin Kaleschke from Ludwigsburg.  With this concert on Wednesday December 31st at 16:00 clock our concert year  2014 will come to an  end.

Our this  year's New Year's Eve  concert is under a special star:

The Ludwigsburg brass  player quintet, which has musically filled us  with enthusiasm and with brilliant sounds for so many years on New Year's Eve, is going to celebrate its 30-year existence this year.

It is rare that  an ensemble founded in the  student days exists so long, permanently works out new annual programs in increasing form and  gives performances in numerous concerts.

On the occasion of the anniversary year the  Ludwigsburg Brass will give their concert in an extended instrumentation. We particularly look forward to it because the  increase of 5 on 8 windplayers opens up another large musical spectrum.

So  among other works, double chorus pieces of  Bach and Mendelssohn will resound. Furthermore compositions from Henry  Purcell, J.J. Moret, Jim Parker, Eugène Gigout, Richard Strauss, Peter Tschaikowski and Scott Joplin  will be performed.

The LBQ Brass  in their main instrumentation:
Hubertus von  Stackelberg, trumpets
Klaus Ulrich Dann, trumpets
Harald Domes,  horn
Michael Peuser,  trombone
Fabian  Zürn, tuba
Martin  Kaleschke, organ

And this year for the first  time as "Special Guests":
Friedrich Mück, trombone
Paul Jocot,  trumpet (Württembergische philharmonia.)
Sebastian Zech (solo trumpeter of the Stuttgart members of the philharmonia).

Large Donation on the  Occasion of 80. Birthday

Herr Karl Humborg rechts mit KMD Markus GrohmannTo the beginning of his anniversary celebration, virtually as a surprise, Mr. Humborg at first invited his clutch of guests into the parish church St. Peter and Paulus. Here Mr Grohmann started his guided organ tour for the group continued with a prelude at the E.F. Walcker organ. The guests were of a coloured age distribution. Some of them even arrived from a long distance. The guests of Mr. Humborg appeared enthusiastic about the instrument and of the history of the church and organ.

One of the youngest guests could play even a song on the organ. This of course pleased the relatives particularly.

Instead of giving presents for his anniversary Mr Humborg asked his guests to donate for preservation of the organ and the church music.

So Mr Humborg could submit the stately total amount of 1.455,- € to the parish administration.

We are very thankful to Mr Humborg and his wife for this great idea.

We furthermore want to express our best wishes for them for both health and welfare.

Szabó already repeatedly has been in Neuhausen as a guest at guided organ tours, for instance during ourses at our E.F. Walcker organ. He is very enthusiastic about our instrument.

Much applause  after concert for  trombone and organ

Prof. Armin Rosin Posaune und Prof. Felix rechtsAt the day of the  patronage of St. Peter and Paul our 3rd concert of  our row 2014  took place in the parish church. Prof. Armin  Rosin with alpenhorn and trombone  and Prof. KMD Michael  Felix at the Walcker organ could  be heard. A very peasant programme had been performed with works from Armin Rosin, Nimra  Korinthos, Britten, Mouret, Petrali, Rheinberger, Liszt and Guilmant.

The well-adjusted duo gave an interpretation of the works virtuosoly.  The audience could feel and heat their joy  while playing. At the beginning, Prof. Rosin explained the  numerous concert-goers details  of the bass trumpet as well as the instrument alpenhorn, his genesis, his production and last but not  least his original purpose for the  notification in the distances of the Alpine pastures of the Swiss mountains. Into these one felt also  moved at the beginning  of the concert when the  earthy instrument was made impressively by Rosin sound  in the live room parish church.

Prof. Rosin - rechts -  und Prof. Felix - OrgelAmong other things Prof. Felix played  an organ solo  with 3 movements by  Carl Philip  Emanuel Bach whose  300th birthday is  celebrated this year.

As an encore Armin  Rosin surprisingly presented himself  as being a powerful gospel song  singer with a spiritual.

At  the conclusion of an adequate patronage celebration a joyful applause rewarded the  two musicians concert  evening

Children with enthusiasm at guided organ tour

Director of the Sacred Music Markus Grohmann and the childrenOn Sunday May 11th, 2014 towards 2:30 p.m., a small group of approx. 20 children assembled on the churchyard in front of the parish church St. Peter and Paulus. Our director of the sacred music Markus Grohmann welcomed the young guests and their parents. At first he explained the history of the parish church and the reasons why it was built so large. From the churchyard the group then walked to the house of the vicar co-operator  in order to see the geometric forms on the south side of the church. These can be found again in the organ front.

The children found it quite funny, that around 1850  the organ builder Eberhard Friedrich Walcker could come to Neuhausen only with the horse-drawn carriage and that cars and  electric current at that time did not exist yet. This meant that the organ had to be provided mechanically with air, i.e. "wind".

Inside the church Mr. Grohmann showed the "face of the organ" from the apse. The children could recognize the geometric forms of the ecclesiastical architecture in the organ very well.

From the apse of the church the group then went up the stairs to the organ loft on which the organ stands and the church choir open sings during religious ceremonies.

Here Markus Grohmann explained  the most important elements of the organ. As there are the organ pipes, the mechanics which allows it to open the valve of the pipes in order to make the pipes sound their tones.

After these more theoretical informations he then demonstrated the individual stops followed by an organ crescendo starting with only a few quiet stops up to the full sound with all stops.

After that it was the children's turn. Mr Grohmann hid the answers to the questions of the organ Quizz during his explanations in the guided tour.

Some questions the children found them quit funny.

The children took part with enthusiasm and filled out the questionnaires developed especially for them diligently. It turned out that the children had paid attention very well.

At the end Mr Grohmann thanked the children for their attention and their  interest. Although every child could not be given a real organ pipe but a Kazzoo as a present. And, shortly after the handout, it hummed just like in a beehive. With the Kazzoo and their  questionnaires in hands a joyful group of children left the parish church.
