Since the inauguration of the new organ in Enghien (2017), the church administration, owner of the instrument, the organist and the organ builder have regularly discussed the interest of demystifying the instrument by presenting it to the public in an original way, with a view to better understanding its functioning.
What are the keys to the mystery that transforms the breath into rich, varied music, imitating many other instruments and allowing the sublimation of musical art?The answer will be mixed: the organ builder, Mr Guido Schumacher, will present the different technical functions of the organ and the titular organist, Mr Michel Van den Bossche, will illustrate them with appropriate music. This combination will allow us to travel through many musical worlds while understanding the functioning of this masterful instrument.Press release
