Internationally Acclaimed Organist Evelyn Katz chooses Ahlborn

Evelyn Katz is a renowed neo-Baroque, neo-Classicist organist from Israel who studied composition, keyboard and voice in Jerusalem with Elisabeth Roloff, a student of Marie-Claire Alaine and with Prof. Barenboim. She played on several historical European organs as the one in Dole-France, Vatican City and in the birth place of Smetana in the Czech Republic to name a few. Evelyn is also an acclaimed composer as she wrote two beautiful sets of 24 Preludes and Fugues in the strictest classic style which have contributed to her international fame. Here below are few words Evelyn wrote regarding her new AG 3000 TWK she received in April 2010:

“When I decided to invest into a new and larger instrument and to purchase my second Ahlborn organ I was already confident in this company as I owned an Ahlborn before from the previous technological generation. Therefore I was already quite familiar with the Ahlborn attention and the unique classic approach to organ building, in partucular to the quality of the sounds and workmanship which in my opinion has no rivals. In any case when I finally received in my home my new AG 3000 TWK in light oak finish, with the beautiful three manual wooden keybeds and adjustable bench, I was really enthusiastic beyond expentactions as these ‘luxuries” gives me not only the sound but also the touch and the feeling of a genuine pipe organ..thank you again Ahlborn..I really could not be more satisfied than I am"
