The "bicycle cantor" in Marlow as a guest
The organist Martin Schulze will be giving a concert in the Marlow town church. As Martin Schulze often covers up to 15,000 kilometers of his concert tours by bicycle every year, he has earned the unique title of "bicycle cantor". Martin Schulze studied church music, worked successively as an organist in Friedland in Mecklenburg and in Himmelpforten near Stade, and was then employed as a church musician in the North Sea resort of Otterndorf near Cuxhaven. Currently lives with his family in Frankfurt/O.
From May to October he is on the road in northern Germany, Saxony-Anhalt, Brandenburg and the Ore Mountains. He plays the organ in villages and small towns - where there is otherwise little culture on offer.
The church musician has already made several guest appearances at the organ of the Stadtkirche. His program focuses on works by Johann Sebastian Bach and compositions from the North German Baroque period. In addition to a large free work by Bach, the six chorales from the "Schübler Collection" will be performed. Praeludium and Fugue in E major by Vincent Lübeck and chorale preludes by Matthias Weckmann round off the program. Admission is free, a donation is requested.
