Netherlands, Cabinet organ in the Organ Park of Amsterdam
With the doors closed, one could actually mistake this small single-manual instrument for an ordinary cabinet, which is already a real gem in itself with its curved Baroque design. The instrument itself was built in 1767 by Deetlef Onderhorst.
Jacob Lekkerkerker, organist
Jacob Lekkerkerker is a pioneer of the new organ sound: He transforms music from great church spaces into sounds of cyberspace. In addition, he holds a very traditional position as music director and titular organist at the Oude Kerk in Amsterdam, succeeding Jan P. Sweelinck. Lekkerkerker studied organ and improvisation in The Hague, Lyon and Paris, as well as art history and philosophy in Amsterdam, and composition at Goldsmiths University of London. He has won prizes in several competitions and performs internationally, especially in exciting collaborations with artists of various genres. As a composer, he has specialised in sound art with organ samples.
