Press Play: “Mars” transcribed for organ and performed by Hansjörg Albrecht


We post a rather forceful performance of Holst’s thunderous “Mars” made even more thunderous by Hansjörg Albrecht’s performance on the Detlef Kleuker organ (1965) of St Nicolas Cathedral in Kiel.This is the organist’s own transcription of the work for the “King of Instruments.”

Hansjörg Albrecht opens the 2014 Organo della Pace Festival in Sant’Anna, this July 5th.

Press Play, and play loud!
