More about the title

“Soli Deo Gloria” (Glory to God alone), these are the words with which Johann Sebastian Bach ended his scores. The concert from the Konvergencie Festival with an almost mystical atmosphere, composed of works by Bach, Olivier Messiaen, Johann Christian Heinrich Rinck and improvisations, is a tribute to the royal instrument, its masters and the art of the jubilant Slovak organist, teacher and long-time cantor at the Great Evangelical Church Ján Vladimír Michalko, for whom it was also the last performance of his concert career. Together with his musician friends Juraj Bartoš, Boris Lenko and Jozef Lupták, they brought an unforgettable experience to the visitors and we bring it to you on this album.
