Judiska Församlingens Sessionssal, Wahrendorffsgatan 3, Stockholm

This presentation traces the history of the organ from Jewish imagination (that is in iconography and writings) in the late Middle Ages/Renaissance to its frequent appearance in synagogues beginning in the 19th century. When quarrels broke out over its use in liturgy, the organ became a symbol of the division of the Jewish community into Orthodox and Reform. During this time a novel repertoire for synagogue organ emerged as well, whose most important exponent was Louis Lewandowski. He and other seminal composers heard in Wednesdays concert are discussed.

Part 1 The Organ in Jewish Culture – see above.

Part 2 The Jewish Contribution to (Post)Romantic Organ Music

When the organ became a steady component of liberal synagogues in 19th-century Europe, composers began to create a unique repertoire for the instrument, both for worship and concert. Louis Lewandowski was among the first to synthesize synagogue song with the Protestant chorale prelude in his organ compositions. This lecture gives an overview of the repertoire that emerged throughout the Romantic era and beyond. It details the achievements of Lewandowski and discusses works by Joseph Sulzer, David Nowakowski, Ernst August Beyer, Arno Nadel, and Hans Samuel—all featured in the subsequent concert.
