Event Description

“Guest artist Sven-Ingvart Mikkelsen is the chair of organ and church music at the Royal Danish Academy of Music. Since his debut in 1982, he has made a name for himself with a repertoire of weighty German and French organ classics. Sven-Ingvart studied at the academies of music in Esbjerg and Copenhagen, and supplemented his studies in Vienna under Prof. Michael Radulescu, and in Paris with the organists Marie-Claire Alain and André Isoir. Sven-Ingvart’s work as an organist is characterized by a great curiosity to try out new forms of concert programs and ensemble playing, and he wishes to pass on this curiosity and joy of music to the next generations of organists through his teaching. He also has a great interest in organ building and historical organs, and in general a predilection for narrow, unexplored topics in organ history, which is reflected amongst other things in his research and publications.”
