Organ Matinee: Johannes Michel and the Brass Ensemble of the Berliner Philharmoniker

Johannes Michel is one of the most versatile organists of our time. He is the director of church music at the famous Christuskirche in Mannheim and is a much sought-after concert organist. But beyond that, Johannes Michel is regarded as a gifted composer, who has included brass instruments in addition to his own instrument in numerous extraordinary works. In this matinee, Johannes Michel presents a festive programme ranging from Bach to Wagner together with the Brass Ensemble of the Berliner Philharmoniker.
