Drei Organist*innen improvisieren um die Wette – auf Basis der Wünsche, die das Publikum vorab per Social Media abgibt
Sebastian Heindl Organ Thomas Cornelius Organ NN Organ Dorothee Kalbhenn Host / Presenter

If there's one instrument that's gone off the rails, it's the organ! With its thousands of pipes, it offers almost limitless possibilities – and organists have known how to make use of this for centuries: They are traditionally true masters of improvisation. Here, however, the improvisations are based on your musical wishes and the performers try to outdo each other. From church hymns and Bach's famous toccata to Helene Fischer and Billie Eilish – anything is possible! Two combatants have already been confirmed: Thomas Cornelius from Hamburg, who knows the Elbphilharmonie organ better than anyone else as NDR's house organist, and Sebastian Heindl from Berlin, permanent organist of the Gedächtniskirche since 2023 and “ECHO Rising Star”.
