Rudolf Lutz is not only regarded in the music world as an eloquent pedagogue, able to explain complex compositional contexts in a vivid way, but he is also one of the most sought-after improvisers worldwide. He will give his presentation in English to do justice to our large Internet community.

The church of Stein AR has a very valuable instrument built by Orgelbau Kuhn AG in 1985. We love to hold organ recitals there, and many visitors of the “Appenzeller Bachtage” know the beautiful church because of “Singen in der Früh”, the popular sing-along programme in our festival in August.
