Bach and Liszt Prize-winning organist Zsuzsa Elekes won second prize at the 1st Franz Liszt International Organ Competition in Budapest in 1978 and third prize the following year at the Prague Spring International Music Competition, followed by victory at the Bach Competition in Leipzig in 1980. She has given hundreds of concerts in almost every country in Europe, and has also appeared in Japan. Besides playing for radio and television broadcasts both at home and abroad, she has recorded 1...4 albums for Hungarian, German, Dutch and Japanese labels. She sits on juries at international competitions, teaches on international courses, and is a teacher at the Béla Bartók Conservatory of Music in Budapest. The bulk of the pieces featured on this programme date from the years when Bach had left Arnstadt but had not yet taken up his post at the Thomaskirche in Leipzig.
Additional programmes will spice up the event in the Glass Hall and the Foyer; for example, the Bach Café and Bach Organ-workshop.
