After Bockhorn, a second instrument built by Schnitger journeyman Christian Vater is played here. The organ he built in Wiefelstede in 1729-1731 dazzles with the vibrancy of its 18 stops and the rich palette of sounds they conjure up - a masterpiece in the tradition of Schnitger! Recently restored from 2011-2014, the organ now has the largest original disposition of any instrument by Vater, despite the 19th century modifications. On it, Edoardo Bellotti presents a selection of works that in different ways reveal the character of program music. Sometimes they literally point to it, for example with captions, sometimes they contain hidden ways for the interpreter to trigger associations in the minds of the audience without the help of words. The result is a fascinating musical fresco that, through the magical power of sounds, is able to express and awaken different emotions of the human soul just as much as paintings and sculptures can.
