First anniversary of the Inauguration of the Dubois organ

Almost one year passed since the inauguration of the Dubois organ at the abbey of Peter and Paul in Wissembourg. To celebrate the anniversary a nice concert took place yesterday from 8 PM to 10 PM.

Pascal Reber and Markus Eichenlaub played pieces of various composers. Three have been played using four hands by both artists. A screen has been used so that the audience could see the artists and their helpers working at the console.

I especially enjoyed the »Chaconne en fa mineur« of Johann Pachelbel, one of my favorites which I haven’t heard for ages.

Just like last year the instrument can be heard during the vespers each sunday at 5 PM (August 11 at 4 PM) between June 9 and September 15.

I’d like to thank all who helped to make this happen, especially the many volunteers.
