15 minutes of organ music

Today I was listening organ music in the local “new” Lutheran church (from 1863, the older one is from 1623)… Mr. Henri Sarametsä, an organist for the Lutheran church here, gave us 15 minutes of Buxtehude… Luckily the church has a very nice-sounding Marcussen organ (a Danish organ brand) that will celebrate it’s 150th anniversary[…]

Easter time concerts

This Easter I attended two concerts at the local Lutheran church… The first one was a flute and organ concert. Mr. Tomi Satomaa gave us some very chilling and beautiful organ music (the “Variations on Weinen, Klagen, Sorgen, Zagen” by Liszt were just magnificent!) and occasionally Mrs. (or Ms.) Anna Satomaa played solo flute on[…]

This time it was the main organist Ari Hirvonen from the local Lutheran church who performed for us. I really enjoyed… I especially liked the Allegro by Johann Gottfried[…]

Organ music

Was just listening some organ music in the new church of Uusikaupunki… This summer, on Thursdays, someone (usually local Lutheran organists) plays the Marcussen organ there for 15 minutes at 12 o’clock… It’s quite nice 🙂 I’m going to attend them all …

Concert on last Friday at the Turku Cathedral…

Funeral

I played organ in a funeral today… a woman who served God as an evangelist had passed away this month… and now she’s in a better place. My condolences for her family, relatives and friends. The service was held in the Lutheran funeral chapel of Uusikaupunki. Happier news: I got some gigs as an accompanist[…]
