When in the 1960s a new organ was planned for the neighbouring church, the Nean­derkirche in the old town of Düsseldorf, the initially-intended neo-baroque concept was soon abandoned. Gerhard Schwarz, the central personality of church music in Düsseldorf, saw the danger of uniformity and sought to design an entirely-new organ concept to extend and expand the organ landscape. In Oskar Gottlieb Blarr, then the cantor and organist of the Neanderkirche, he found an ideal partner. The “Wunderkind” of Düsseldorf’s organ scene was built right up to its inauguration on 27 June 1965. This unique organ quickly became a magnet for audiences and performers! On this exceptional organ, Martin Schmeding, the exceptional organist and the ECHO Klassik Music Prize winner, who was the successor of Oskar Gottlieb Blarr as the cantor of the Neanderkirche, has recorded the latest works by Blarr, created be­tween 2007 and 2017 – produced on Super Audio CD in Stereo, Surround and 3D-Binaural-Stereo.
