Daniel Beckmann and the Berliner Philharmoniker Brass Ensemble

For his Berlin Philharmonie debut, Daniel Beckmann, organist at Mainz Cathedral, has enlisted reinforcement from Berliner Philharmoniker brass players. Together they will present works by composers including Felix Mendelssohn and Richard Strauss. Also to be heard in this concert are Guy Bovet’s gloriously bizarre Tangos Ecclesiasticos and a showpiece by Marcel Dupré in which Daniel Beckmann will pull out all the stops and show off the Berlin Philharmonie organ in its full glory. The concert will end with Symphonic Festival Music by the Austrian composer Joseph Messner, which seems to be reconciling opera and church with grand gestures and heroic jubilation.
