Arp-Schnitger-Festival

On 7 December 2017, the traditions of organ-building and organ music in Germany were added to the UNESCO List of Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity. Arp Schnitger from Wesermarsch (1648–1719) was definitely a part of this tradition. Even during his lifetime, he was the organ builder whose instruments could be found over the widest geographical range, and his surviving instruments today, thanks to new organs around the world based on these models and the many available recordings, have become outstanding examples of the unique Northern European organ culture in the Baroque period.
The Arp-Schnitger-Kulturerbe e.V., founded at the initiative of the Bremen Music Festival, remains dedicated to the preservation of Schnitger’s organs and the related documents and is preparing activities that will give special recognition to the value of his work in the jubilee year 2019.
