This CD is recorded on the famous De Rijckere organ in the Oostkerk at Middelburg. Bach-specialist Bram Beekman naturally plays compositions of Bach and ï¿½other highlights of organ literature. Examples are the Scherzo of the 4th Symphony of Widor and Allein Gott in der Hï¿½h sei Ehr of Sweelinck. The organ on which this CD is recorded is musically unique. Itï¿½s an instrument with a Dutch character in capacity and clarity, but the flutes sound Flemish.
Bram Beekman is one of the most known organ players in the Netherlands and a very wanted musician in The Netherlands and in foreign countries. He is the organ player of the Oostkerk in Middelburg and teacher at the Brabant Conservatory. At this conservatory he studied with Louis Toebosch and obtained his soloist diploma. In Vienna he continued his studies on the organ with Anton Heiller. In 1975 he obtained the Prix dï¿½Excellence and he was winner of organ contests in Bruges (1973) and Bologna (1975). ï¿½Apart from giving many concerts, Bram Beekman performs regularly on radio and television. For the broadcasting station Omroep Zeeland Televisie, he made the successful series Alle Registers Open, where he tells about and plays different organs in Zeeland.
