“Every now and then comes an organ recital that is perfectly satisfying in every respect. This is one occasion. Here we have one of the great young organists of our time playing an engaging program consisting of two staples of the literature, a fine transcription of a work for strings, and two works of recent vintage that already have the label “modern classic” stamped on them. Superb sound recordings allow us to optimally hear every contrapuntal strain and nuance.” - Phil Muse, Audio Society of Atlanta (May 2017)

Felix Hell is one of the most sought-after concert organists of his generation.

At the age of 21, Felix Hell received global recognition for his performances of the complete organ works of Johann Sebastian Bach in three full cycles. Most recently, in 2013, Felix Hell was engaged by the Germany Embassy in Seoul, Korea, to perform the complete organ works of Bach there, commemorating the 130th anniversary of diplomatic relations between Germany and South Korea. Felix Hell continues to innovate in his field through expanding the traditional boundaries of the organ, collaborating with artists of various fields, and has dedicated his life to sharing his passion for excellence in music.
