Performer Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Tilo Medek's first works for organ, "Verschuttete Bauernflote (1969)" (buried rustic flute) and "B-A-C-H, Vier Tone fur Orgel (1973)" (Four Tones for Organ) were composed for the large organ at Merseburg Cathedral, and were inspired by its sound. The composition and the tonal character of the organ (which was constructed from 1853–1855 by Friedrich Ladegast using Baroque registers) was profoundly altered following comprehensive restoration by Kuhne & Co. in 1963. In the process, Kuhne replaced the typical Romantic stops, i.e. free reeds and numerous string registers, with Neo-Baroque pitches (high flutes like the rustic flute 1' in the pedal, Aliquot as well as mixed registers).
