A musical journey with organ and cello

A musical journey with organ and cello

With: Jetty de Vries (organ), Human Coetzee (cello)

Our musical journey starts in France of the 17th century (with Couperin) and moves to and fro through the next three centuries through Austria, Germany, Spain and Italy to end in Russia in the mid-20th century (with Stravinsky and Prokofiev). On our journey we include musical gems from well-known composers such as Haydn and Schubert, as well as some beautiful pieces from a few lesser known composers like Bargiel, Hure and Marin Garcia.

The combination of cello and organ is not so often heard in concert. The velvety tone of the cello combines beautifully with the majestic sound of the organ. Although a few composers through the ages created repertoire for this combination, we are constantly adapting for cello and organ music that was not originally composed for the combination of these two instruments.
