They are considered the Stradivari among the organs: the instruments of the legendary master organ builder Arp Schnitger (1648–1719), who came from the Wesermarsch. Whether Bach, Handel or Buxtehude, the most illustrious composers admired and valued his magnificent and beautifully sounding instruments. Arp Schnitger delivered them to the Netherlands, England, Denmark, Russia, Spain and Portugal and was the organ builder with the largest catalogue and the widest geographical distribution of instruments of his time. The Musikfest Bremen has been promoting the legacy of this outstanding organ builder since 2010 and in the future it will continue to organise concerts in the organ paradise surrounding Bremen with its Arp-Schnitger-Festival, with each instrument a shining example of the incomparable Northern European organ culture.
