St. Sixtus and Sinicius, the largest and oldest church in the whole of Wangerland, houses a magnificent instrument by the Jever-born organ builder Joachim Kayser, a contemporary of Arp Schnitger. Organist, harpsichordist and conductor Andrea Marcon, one of whose many accolades was first prize at the organ competition in Innsbruck in 1986, is one of the most acclaimed musicians and specialists in the field of early music. On the Kayser organ, he will present a musical journey from his Italian homeland to the north of Germany. Girolamo Frescobaldi was one of the foremost composers for keyboard instruments in the early 17th century, leaving behind an infinite supply of musical and technical innovations. As such, he not only influenced the next generation of local composers such as Bernardo Storace and Bernardo Pasquini, but, along with Jan Pieterszoon Sweelinck, was also highly influential to North German composers such as Dieterich Buxtehude and Vincent Lübeck.
