Description

The three organs in St. Gallen Cathedral are true masterpieces. Taking account of this exceptional situation the Collegium Musicum St. Gallen interpret three works of J.S. Bach, Händel and Haydn. In addition, they commissioned the Swiss composers Gion Antoni Derungs and Paul Huber to compose two organ concertos. Whereas Derungs' "Concerto da chiesa" is based on the dialogue between the orchestra and the two smaller choir organs, Huber's organ concerto makes full use of the considerable sound possibilities of the main organ.
