MICHAEL SCHOENHEIT

Friedrich Ladegast was one of the most important organ builders of the second half of the 19th century. He was born in 1818 in Hochhermsdorf, and so the musical world has recently celebrated his 200th birthday. On behalf of this occasion Querstand has released two albums which contain the programs of the first concerts played at two of the greatest Ladegast Organs: the Merseburg Cathedral organ and the Organ at Schwerin Cathedral. Ladegast completed the Merseburg Cathedral Organ in 1855, and the memorable inaugural concert went down in history. Four organists took part in the program: David Hermann Engel, Franz Liszt, Alexander Winterberger and Hermann Schellenberg. For this program, the works are performed by Michael Schonheit.
