Recital--Organ Solo
kath. Kirche St. Martin, Rathausstraße 26 (66450 Bexbach, Germany)
Christian Brembeck (München)

Sie ist eines der unbekannten Kleinode der Kirchenbaukunst in der Region und eines der größten: Die katholische KIRCHE ST. MARTIN in Bexbach wurde 1880/81 als dreischiffige Halle im neoromanischen Stil erbaut. Bemerkenswert sind die Glasfenster, vor allem die prachtvolle Fensterrosette zwischen den Pfeifentürmen der Orgel. Die Orgel aus dem Jahr 1962 wurde 2013 grundlegend renoviert. Es ist ein besonderes Erlebnis, in diesem Raum bei einem Orgelkonzert zu erleben. Der renommierte Münchner Musiker CHRISTIAN BREMBECK hat ein Programm konzipiert, bei dem mit Werken von JOHANN SEBASTIAN BACH, GABRIEL PIERNÉ, MAX REGER, FILIPPO CAPOCCI u.a. vor allem die in der großen Rosette der Westfassade dargestellte Geistsendung musikalisch ausgeleuchtet wird. Vielseitigkeit, gepaart mit Virtuosität und Spielfreude, ist das auffallendste Merkmal seines künstlerischen Wirkens: CHRISTIAN BREMBECK spielt die Orgel ebenso souverän wie er die gesamte Palette alter Tasteninstrumente bis zum Klavier beherrscht; entsprechend weit gefächert ist sein Repertoire. Als gefeierter Solist und Kammermusiker spielt er in den bedeutenden Konzertsälen und Kirchen Europas, in Israel, Ostasien und Südamerika. Von 1986 bis 1996 war er für die Münchener Philharmoniker unter Sergiu Celibidache tätig; bis heute wirkt er bei Konzerten und Tourneen des Tölzer Knabenchores mit. Beleg für seine künstlerische Kompetenz sind auch mehr als 50 Einspielungen für Schallplatte/CD sowie zahlreiche Rundfunk- und Fernsehproduktionen. Eintritt: 11,- EUR / Kinder bis 14 J....
