The Organ of St. Michael's

2011 - The organ is reorganised and expanded with a German swell-box by the Rieger organ-building company from Vorarlberg/Austria (inauguration on October 30, 2011). The 17-century prospectus by Jesuit brother Johann Hörmann is retained, and the better part of the pipe material from the predecessor organ (Sandtner 1982/83) is re-used. The new Rieger organ allows stylistically accurate interpretations of very wide range of organ music and provides an ideal foundation for sophisticated improvisations.

Organist Peter Kofler

A native of Bolzano, South Tyrol, organist and harpsichordist Peter Kofler (*1979) received his first musical training at the Claudio Monteverdi Academy of Music in his hometown. At the University of Music and Performing Arts in Munich he studied the organ and church music with Harald Feller as well as the harpsichord with Christine Schornsheim. Peter Kofler performs with distinguished conductors such as Mariss Jansons, Franz Welser-Möst, Bernard Haitink, Riccardo Muti, Daniel Harding, Esa-Pekka Salonen, Giovanni Antonini, and Thomas Hengelbrock. He is a founding member and regular harpsichordist of the L’ Accademia Giocosa Baroque Orchestra.
