Stichting Lohmanorgel Farmsum presents:
Pavel Černý on the organ at Farmsum
Organ recital on one of the most beautiful Lohman organs in the province, given by the Czech organist Pavel Černý
The organ-building family Lohman – originally from Ost-Friesland over the border in Germany – built several organs in Groningen at the beginning of the 19th century. One of the most beautiful, with the most crystal-clear sound, was finished in 1829 in the Reformed church in the village of Farmsum, a stone’s throw away from Delfzijl. Since its inauguration this organ has been known for its intense, clear and full sound which reminds one more of an early 18th-century instrument than one from the 19th-century. This evening the famous Prague organist Pavel Černý, who is also in Groningen to give Masterclasses in the ‘Schnitger Meets…’ series, will play this unique instrument for us.
