One section is also dedicated to Anton Bruckner, who stayed in Bad Kreuzen several times as a spa visitor. After the festive mass at 9:30 a.m. in the castle courtyard (large tent available), the President of the Provincial Parliament, Max Hiegelsberger, and the Mayor, Manfred Nenning, will open the exhibition. A cozy morning pint with food and drink as well as musical accompaniment round off the opening.

The installation combines organ playing and an ensemble of converted playground equipment to create a collective musical instrument in public space. Different organ pipes are operated by swinging and seesawing together - a sound space unfolds on the organ playground that makes Anton Bruckner audible and tangible in both an abstract and playful way.
The SCHORGEL will be set up in various Bruckner-related locations in 2024.

The SCHORGEL is coming to Bad Kreuzen!
The organ playground can be experienced as part of the: Opening of the exhibition "175 years of the healing power of water" with a festive concert and a concert by the Camerata Medica Wien

The orchestra Camerata Medica Wien is conducted by Nicolas Radulescu
Anton Bruckner Symphony No. 4 in E flat major ("Romantic"), WAB 104 2nd version, 1878/1880

Nicolas Radulescu was born in Vienna. After being impressed by the Bruckner performances of Sergiu Celibidache, he received his first conducting lessons from his father, the conductor, composer and organist, Michael Radulescu. He studied early music and applied musicology and completed his conducting studies with Martin Sieghart, former chief conductor of the Linz Bruckner Orchestra, at the University of Music and Performing Arts Graz in 2006. In the course of his concert career, he has performed in renowned concert halls such as the Musikverein and Konzerthaus in Vienna, the Salzburg Mozarteum and the Amsterdam Concertgebouw: He has also worked with well-known soloists and orchestras. Known for promoting young musicians, his work focuses on Anton Bruckner. This has led him to become a consultant for the new Bruckner edition published by the Wiener Musikwissenschaftliche Verlag. Nicolas Radulescu currently conducts the Camerata Medica Vienna, the Lyra Vienna Chamber Orchestra and teaches music history and historical performance practice. Nicolas Radulescu has lived in Bad Kreuzen since 2023.

The Camerata Medica Wien is a non-profit orchestra association currently consisting of 62 musicians: The members are in the main from the medical and pharmaceutical professions and many of them have professional musical training. One of the aims of the association is to revive the tradition of the "Vienna Doctors' Orchestra", which dates back to the early 20th century.
In spring 2004, the Viennese orthopaedic surgeon, Dr. Martin Donner, brought this tradition back to life by founding the Camerata Medica Wien.
Originally founded as a chamber orchestra, the orchestra, under the direction of the Viennese conductor, Nicolas Radulescu, has segued to become one that can also include larger symphonic works in its repertoire. Every year, three new complete programmes are developed and presented to the public.
On its 20th anniversary, Camerata Medica Wien can look back on 50 successful concert events, including numerous charity concerts.

Further information on ticket sales will be announced shortly under "Details & Tickets".

The French conductor and violinist Rémy Ballot has formed an ensemble with musicians with whom he regularly works in orchestras. An acclaimed debut concert at the St. Florian Bruckner Festival in summer 2020 resulted in a CD with Anton Bruckner's String Quintet and String Quartet, which was released on the Gramola label. This project led to the development of the permanent core of a regular ensemble, the Ballot Quartet. In order to present a broader repertoire, this quartet also became the Ballot Quintet.

"Each member of the quartet is a highly cultivated musical personality who knows how to listen to their fellow players and is equally capable of taking the lead, accompanying and integrating themselves into a tutti sound. This ensemble does not offer the kind of mannered, uniform sound that one hears from formations that commit themselves to either a quasi-orchestral or a finely chiseled performance. The playing style of this quartet is oriented towards the respective conditions of the composition, which is presented with great sensitivity."

This is what Florian Schuck writes in his review for about the Ballot Quartet as part of the St. Florian Bruckner Festival 2023 at Tillysburg Castle.
