Felix Hell

German concert organist Felix Hell is a phenomenon in several ways. Hailed as the “most well known young concert organist worldwide” (Dr. John Weaver), and “undoubtedly one of the major talents of the century” (Dr. Frederick Swann, AGO president), he “sets standards that many established and honoured older players would struggle to equal” (Michael Barone in The American Organist ).

Felix has had an active concert career since the age of nine and has already performed more than 700 recitals throughout his native Germany, as well as Australia, Canada, Denmark, Finland, France, Iceland, Italy, Jamaica, Korea, Latvia, New Zealand, Norway, Malaysia, Singapore, Spain, Russia, and the USA, where he performed more than 450 recitals in 44 states.

At the age of 21, Felix received global recognition for his performances of the entire organ works of Johann Sebastian Bach in three full cycles, presenting roughly 250 works, totalling close to 20 hours of performance time in each of them. Most recently, in 2013, Felix Hell was engaged by the German Embassy in Seoul to perform the complete organ works of Bach in Seoul, commemorating the 130th anniversary of diplomatic relations between Germany and South Korea. He also performed the complete organ works of Felix Mendelssohn in New York City, commemorating the composer’s 200th birthday.
