Free concert this Saturday (w/ lunch and sign up via Couchsurfing)
Posted August 29th, 2013 - 12:35 pm by from Berlin, Germany (Permalink)
Babylon Cinema on Rosa Luxemburg Platz has one of Germany's oldest cinema organs- an organ with not just with pipes, but also drums, tuned percussion, a telephone, thunder... See http://www.babylonberlin.de/stummfilme.htm (German link)

This is a free concert with explanation for CouchSurfers; I am one of the organists here and play silent films occasionally.

I will play a little 'normal' organ repertoire - Bach's Toccata and Fugue in d minor for example - and more typical theatre organ repertoire - improvisations on music of the twenties and thirties.

We will meet in the Luxemburg Café, which is just to the left of the Babylon cinema, between 10.45-11.00 on Saturday. Please sign up, rather than coming unannounced as it is a private tour rather than a normal Babylon event.

The lecture-concert lasts about 45 minutes. Afterwards we could eat together in the Luxemburg café. I look forward to meeting you and showing you this wonderful instrument.
