Flemming Dreisig  

organ

Flemming Dreisig is the organist at Copenhagen Cathedral. He has held this post, the most prestigious in Denmark for an organist, since 2003. Flemming Dreisig has thus been enrolled in the ‘royal succession’ of Danish organists – his predecessors have included the composers C.E.F. Weyse and J.P.E. Hartmann. Flemming Dreisig emerged very early as one of the best Danish organists ever. He studied with Grete Krogh and graduated from the Royal Danish Academy of Music in Copenhagen at the age of 19. He became Denmark’s youngest cathedral organist ever when he took over as organist at Maribo Cathedral at the age of 21. Laterhe has had organist posts in among other places the Skt. Nikolai Church in Rønne and Helligåndskirken in Copenhagen. Flemming Dreisig has studied the French organ tradition in Paris with two of the most important organists of the twentieth century, Jean Langlais and Gaston Litaize. From 1973 until 1988 he himself taught at the Academy of Music in Copenhagen – for the last five years as professor. Throughout the years it has been possible to hear Flemming Dreisig in innumerable church concerts, at home as well as abroad. On CD he has been a pioneer in recording some of Rued Langgaard’s Late Romantic organ works.
