New organ added to the Johannus LiVE family

With the recording of the Sauer organ from the Michaeliskirche in Leipzig, the Johannus LiVE family is an organ richer.

AUTHENTIC RECORDINGS OF TRUE-TO-LIFE ORGANS

The Johannus LiVE is a digital stereo organ on which dozens of international pipe organs can be played through sample sets. Each sample set contains a pure recording of a complete organ. When Johannus LiVE was launched in 2015, sample sets were already available from the Cavaillé Coll organ in the Église Notre-Dame d’Auteuil in Paris, the Silbermann organ in the Katholische Hofkirche in Dresden, and the Bätz organ in Utrecht’s Domkerk. The collection has been expanded once again, this time with the addition of a wonderful organ from Leipzig.

MORE THAN 1,100 ORGANS

The Michaeliskirche in Leipzig, the city of Bach, Mendelssohn, Schumann, Grieg and Telemann, was designed by the architects Heinrich Rust and Alfred Müller, and was built between 1901 and 1904. The renowned organ builder Wilhelm Carl Friedrich Sauer completed a 46-stop organ in this church in 1904. Sauer not only delivered beautiful organs, there were also quite a lot of them; he was involved in the design of more than 1,100 organs. The instrument in the Michaeliskirche has three manuals and one pedal board. The organ was restored at the end of the 20th century by Christian Scheffler.
