Eva Feldbaek (Organ)

Born: Denmark

The Danish organist, Eva Feldbæk, was a pupil of the famous Danish interpreter of J.S. Bach and Dietrich Buxtehude, Finn Viderø. Further organ studies followed with Finn Reiff, and piano with Elisabeth Klein, one of the leading interpreters of contemporary music.

Since 1973 she has been organist at Vestkirken in Ballerup. Eva Feldbæk performs extensively, frequently presenting new music, and has played often on Danish radio. She has commissioned and premiered many new works by Danish composers (A. Borup-Jørgensen, P. Gudmundsen-Holmgreen, Ib Nørholm, Tage Nielsen, Steen Pade and others), including works for organ solo as well as chamber music with the organ in unusual combinations, such as Axel Borup-Jørgensen's Winter Music with percussion, Svend Hvidtfelt Nielsen's Catafalque with harp, and Pelle Gudmundsen-Holmgreen's Octopus for two organists (all recorded on Dacapo). Starting in 1987, she has several times each year performed J. S. Bach's Die Kunst der Fuge (BWV 1080) in its entirery on various organs, modern instruments as well as organs built on historic principles (recorded on Helikon).
