Winfried Bönig, organ
Lawrence Koh, sand artist
Sinfonia from Cantata No. 29
Organ Symphony No. 5, Op. 42 No.1
II. Allegro Cantabile
A blank slate, infinite grains of sand, infinite possibilities. Conjuring a magician’s power, he channels the spirit of the music that encompasses all cosmic force through his delicate palms. Into the grains of sand he breathes life, an organic body. Sand artist Lawrence Koh animates The Planets by Gustav Holst in a celestial collaboration with organist Winfried Bönig. Widor’s standout work, the Toccata from Organ Symphony No. 5 has saluted countless weddings to date, its upbeat and charming character irresistibly captivating.
