I. Guided Tour by Stefan Kießling

Stefan Kießling takes us to Waltershausen, a historic town in central Germany, and offers a virtual tour of the world-famous pipe organ in the Waltershausen Town Church. It is the biggest Baroque organ in the region and largely preserved in its original state of 1730s, making it an invaluable reference for studying organ music from the Baroque period.

 

II. Organ Recital by Stefan Kießling

Stefan Kießling presents an organ programme of J.S. Bach, Johann Ludwig Krebs and Dieterich Buxtehude at the Baroque organ in Waltershausen Town Church, showcasing the sonic variety and beautiful tone of the splendid instrument.

瓦爾特斯豪森教堂的管風琴

今屆香港古樂節,德國管風琴演奏家傑斯寧(Stefan Kießling) 會擔任美樂嚮導,在一連兩集的《瓦爾特斯豪森教堂的管風琴》中帶您到德國中部古鎮,認識該區一座歷史悠久、外型宏偉的巴羅克管風琴。

 

一、瓦爾特斯豪森教堂的管風琴:尋源篇

傑斯寧會帶我們到德國中部的歷史古鎮瓦爾特斯豪森,參觀當地教堂裡一座建於十八世紀前半葉、有三百年歷史的巴羅克管風琴。在德國中部地區能保存至今的巴羅克管風琴中,數它體積最大。這座管風琴更保養良好,成為研究巴羅克時期管風琴音樂的寶貴參考。

 

二、瓦爾特斯豪森教堂的管風琴:賞樂篇

傑斯寧會用瓦爾特斯豪森教堂的管風琴,演奏巴羅克代表作曲家巴赫 (J.S. Bach) 、布斯泰烏德 (D. Buxtehude) 以及巴赫的高徒基利比士 (J. L. Krebs) 的作品,為您展示這座歷史名琴聲音多變、音色優美的特質。

 

傑斯寧 (Stefan Kießling),主持、管風琴獨奏

管風琴演奏家傑斯寧 (Stefan Kießling) 曾在歐洲、美國、非洲、澳洲和亞洲超過廿四個國家演出,曾舉行獨奏會的場地包括萊比錫聖多馬教堂、柏林音樂廳、紐約聖多馬教堂、華盛頓國家座堂和倫敦西敏寺。

 

從2009年到2018年,傑斯寧在萊比錫聖多馬教堂擔任助理管風琴師。該教堂亦是J.S.巴赫曾工作超過四分一世紀的地方。除了演奏事業外,他還舉辦大師班和工作坊,與年輕的風琴演奏家分享他的音樂經驗和見解。
