The Ahrend organ (2004) in Haug church, Hokksund. After 10 years, I am still happy with the colourful and brilliant sound. The action is very precisely, what give the organist the possibility to articulate every detail.

 

However it’s hard to play, the musician needs a brilliant technique. It is important to choose a program that fits the organ. Of course, it is possible to play Mendelssohn, but it is not the first ting I wood play here. Brahms is not possible because the organ wind is not suitable for this.

 

Buxtehude sounds absolutely very nice, and so do Weckmann. Wolfgang Zehrer played a concert for some years ago, with works from Weckmann and Buxtehude. It was the greatest experience, a very good musician who has taste for the sound and a brilliant technique.

 

It is more an organ for chamber music, but the Bach Preludes and Fugues sounds very well too.
