Evan Bogerd - Anton Bruckner
Evan Bogerd will pay tribute to Anton Bruckner as organist on Saturday, May 25 in the Westerkerk in Amsterdam. Although Bruckner hardly wrote anything for his beloved instrument, he had a great reputation as an organist. His improvisation skills in particular were internationally acclaimed.
Anton Bruckner - A life with Orgel
At this special theme concert, Evan Bogerd presents a varied Bruckner program with a mix of arrangements, improvisations on Bruckner's own themes and a small original organ work.
The focus is on a movement from Bruckner's 5th Symphony, which translates wonderfully well to the organ. At the end the Symphonisches Präludium is played in an arrangement by Bogerd. A work of which it is not clear whether it is by Bruckner or Mahler. Whatever it is, it is either a memento of Bruckner's teaching or 'just' a Bruckner work.
The monumental Duyschot organ and the great acoustics of the Westerkerk are ideal for Bruckner's romantic work.
Discover Bruckner's love for the organ in the beautiful Westerkerk!

Arr. Evan Bogerd
Found in the estate of Rudolf Krzyzanowski, student of Bruckner. The last page states: 'Von Anton Brückner'. The question is whether it belongs to Bruckner or one of his students. The work can also be considered an early work by Bruckner's student Gustav Mahler, perhaps as a composition assignment by Bruckner.
Evan Bogerd is a much sought-after concert organist at home and abroad. He was prepared for his organ studies by Herman van Vliet in Amersfoort. He then studied with Jos van der Kooy at the Royal Conservatory in The Hague. He completed his master's degree with a 10 for the final recital.
