Arp-Schnitger-Festival

The work of Arp Schnitger (1648–1719), the organ builder from Wesermarsch, is a unique symbiosis of craftsmanship and engineering, architecture, sculpture and painting plus physical, chemical and technical knowledge, all merged to create the Gesamtkunstwerk of the organ. This is what makes him the most important representative of the North European art of organ building. The Arp Schnitger Festival shifts focus back onto his creations in the cultural region of the North Sea coast area that is so rich in tradition.
The Arp-Schnitger-Kulturerbe e.V., founded at the initiative of the Bremen Music Festival, is dedicated to the preservation of Schnitger’s organs and the related documents and is preparing actions that will give special recognition to the value of his work in the jubilee year 2019 (www.arp-schnitger-kulturerbe.de ).

The Arp-Schnitger-Festival cooperates with Schnitger Festival Groningen: http://schnitgerfestival.nl/
