Reinhard Seeliger presents on this comprehensive DVD by Johannes Eckelmann the Sun Organ (Sonnenorgel) (Mathis 1997/2006) in St Peter and Paul in Görlitz, Germany.

The Sun Organ is a masterpiece of occidental organ building and with its playable sun stop unique in the world. The instrument was made by Eugenio Casparini from 1697 to 1703. In the course of the centuries the organ was modified several times. In 2006 a new instrument was completed by Mathis Orgelbau, Näfels (CH).

The DVD gives a unique portrait of this magnificent instrument on more than 170 variable and interesting screens. With its films, pictures, texts and sound samples it provides insights and perspectives that are generally not accessible. And with its wonderful organ music it also becomes an auditory experience.

Further features are the films about the assembly of the swell and the intonation as well as the chance to play audio samples of the sun mixtures, the baroque playing extras and every single of the 88 stops.

The organ works - complemented with visual impressions of the organ and the chruch interior - are played by Reinhard Seeliger.

Review at klassik.com
(only available in German)

...Ein Novum ist ebenfalls der Ansatz, nicht ‘einfach nur’ einen Dokumentarfilm zu drehen – was ohnehin schon spannend gewesen wäre -, sondern die technischen, wohl ‘interaktiv’ zu nennenden Möglichkeiten einer DVD zu nutzen...

...Der Stereo-Klang erweist sich als tadellos und scheint die Orgel in ihrer Raumwirkung originalgetreu zu treffen. Auch die Bildqualität bewegt sich auf unbestreitbar professionellem Niveau, genauso wie Regie und Schnitt, dem sicher die größte Verantwortung oblag, das ‘klingende Möbelstück’ beweglich zu machen.

Fazit:
Eine lohnende multimediale Herangehensweise an das faszinierende Instrument Orgel; besonders für Orgelfreaks mit großer CD-Sammlung eine echte Bereicherung. Als Geschenk bestens geeignet; für den am Repertoire Interessierten allerdings keine Alternative zu einer ‘echten’ CD-Produktion.
