After the concert organist Iveta Apkalna received the highest praise from the feuilleton with her first recordings of the organ of the Hamburg Elbphilharmonie and the double organ of the Taiwanese Kaohsiung Center for the Arts, she now follows up with a triple album as her third release on the Berlin Classics label.

With “Triptychon”, she spans three centuries and three confessions on one organ: Johann Sebastian Bach, Franz Liszt and Pēteris Vasks are heard on the organ of the Konzertkirche Neubrandenburg, which she co-developed, inaugurated and has now recorded for the first time.

The contrast could not be greater: the nature-spiritual pastor’s son Vasks, the Protestant music monolith Bach, and the groupie-adored salon lion and late-called abbot Liszt. To be able to play all these composers on one instrument should not be taken for granted. With a total of 2852 pipes, ranging from 8 millimetres to almost 7 metres high, the organ has 70 stops. Iveta Apkalna is thrilled: “The organ sounds incredibly warm, velvety and round. And with its clearly defined 70 stops, it gives the organist all the possibilities, whether solo or with orchestra, from early Baroque to Romantic literature to modern.”
