Previous Event Next Event

Georg Philipp Telemann held an important position at Hamburg’s principal churches. As the »Director musices« he played in one of these churches every week on a rotational basis. At the time, the organ in the principal church of Sankt Katharinen was considered to be the jewel in the crown among all of Hamburg’s organs. As part of the Telemann Festival, the Baroque master’s works are now performed in their original settings: Andreas Fischer, the church’s Musical Director, performs an organ concert at Sankt Katharinen.

Hauptkirche St. Katharinen

St. Katharinen, one of the five major churches in Hamburg, is regarded as the tallest building in the Hanseatic City. The church was originally designed in the Gothic style – today, the tall windows that flood the interior with light are evidence of this.
