Knud Vad (Organ)

Born: 1936 - Denmark

The Danish organist and conductor, Knud Vad, was educated at the Royal Danish Academy of Music. He had additional studies with Anton Heiller in 1960 and 1964.

In 1964 Knud Vad was appointed organist at Sorø Monastery Church, and in the following years he built up the musical life for which Sorø is so well-known today. In 1975 he started performing the organ works by J.S. Bach at the famous Marcussen organ in Sorø Church and has repeated this since then with five-year intervals. In connection with the last performance in 2000 he concluded the recording of Bach’s organ works (including the Neumeister chorals) at the Sorø organ (the first recording with the same organist at the same organ in Denmark).
