A dream came true for Barbara Dennerlein when she had the opportunity to perform her compositions together with a symphonic orchestra. Meaning no less than ennobling her musical ideas by a perfect orchestration. It is an exciting challenge for herself as well as for the arranger, the conductor and the whole orchestra. After a successful premiere concert on stage and on radio all of them are keen to continue the project.
A Philharmonic Experience - Hammond Meets Orchestra
Performing Barbara Dennerlein's compositions in philharmonic polyphony has been a challenge for the Philharmonic Orchestra of Rhineland-Palatinate and culminated in an excellent concert with the organist and her trio in December of 2003 in Ludwigshafen, Germany. Barbara Dennerlein convinced conductor Bernd Ruf, a highly praised crossover specialist, to join her in this project which had originally been a spontaneous idea on a summer evening.

Barbara Dennerlein presented not only a contrast with her Hammond organ - as an "orchestra-in-a-box" so to speak - she also joined the orchestra with her inimitable bass pedal playing, controlled the tempo and allowed the double bass section several prolonged breaks during her virtuous bass pedal solos.
An enthusiastic audience listened to Dennerlein's compositions in orchestral sonority, counterpointed by jazz typical solo, duo and trio parts. The unique sound of Barbara Dennerlein's performance on her Hammond organ in conjuncture with the powerful sound of the seventy piece orchestra, created a fascinating and unusual sound pattern, which captured the entire participants with its energy and great variety.

With jazz on the church organ Barbara Dennerlein covers new ground and is about to establish a new concert tradition.
Jazz Meets Church Organ - Barbara Dennerlein's CD "Spiritual Movement No.1"
An artist approaches the mighty church organ - with respect, with passion and with a prodigious enthusiasm for elaborate extemporisation - the essential quality which makes Jazz a constantly renewed and reinvigorated art form.
Barbara Dennerlein is well aware that her regular instrument, the Hammond organ, is a descendant of a sacred and formidably powerful forerunner, the mighty church organ. Weaving innovative patterns in jazz while including inspiration from the past, the Munich- based artist explores new instrumental terrain and generates a fresh and surprising quality in the melodies and sound qualities she produces from the queen of instruments.
"Spiritual Movement No. 1" is an intense and disciplined work and, notwithstanding the improvisational virtuosity, is very much an arranged and ordered performance. Unintimidated by this formidable instrument, Barbara Dennerlein is at all times in full command and covers the entire range of the great Goll-organ pipes at St. Martin in Memmingen.
The album consists of ten exciting original compositions created by Barbara Dennerlein specifically for church organ. It is not simply an experiment to transfer the Hammond B3 way of playing to the four mighty manuals of the Goll-organ nor the mere adaptation of jazz standards to an instrument with many more keys than the Hammond. Even with the cheerful swinging 1929 evergreen of "Ain't Misbehavin' " we discover an ingenuity in the sound production and technical resourcefulness which is only feasible on a church organ.
With her meticulous use of the special sound colours of the pipe organ, Barbara Dennerlein shows herself to be a true artist. The flowing variations of volume, tempi and rhythm of this 78-minute solo performance result in a vibrant and suspense-laden jazz session. On none of her CDs to date has Barbara Dennerlein's unique foot pedal been as much in evidence as it is on the 32 pedals of the Goll-organ, either as an essential, groove-creating background or as a solo offering.
In "Spiritual Movement No. 1", Barbara Dennerlein is working on a new concept of bringing Jazz to the church organ - a future-orientated project of which this splendid recording is just the beginning.
...
After being modernized in 2005, it had Barbara Dennerlein at the console during a concert on December 16th, 2007.
So how do her six years of development sound on the largest of all instruments, the pipe organ? What has changed since "Spiritual Movement No. 1" in Barbara Dennerlein's indisputably unique artistry to make the powerful pipes, voluminous manuals, and weighty pedals more tractable for the turbulent syncopations of jazz?
"Spiritual Movement No. 2" reveals: No longer is she an artist seeking to conquer the "Queen of all Instruments. Rather, she is now the "Queen of the Pipe Organ" who deftly reigns over her instrument as a vital means for expressing her musical intentions. Consequently, Barbara Dennerlein's approach is audacious, unrestrained, and powerful - in other words, she's a jazz musician who's always comfortable laying down some furious music - even in church.
...
With her music Barbara Dennerlein exhausts the instrument's possibilities. One piece is completely against the grain of pipe organ tradition, the next one employs the lush instrumentation of the organ to gain a phenomenal groove. Barbara's music means nothing less than transformimg 5000 organ pipes to a jazz instrument with no "ifs" "ands" or "buts. Finally, exquisite grandness, but always flavoured with the ingredients of jazz, even in Bach's quoted Toccata in d-moll.
Barbara Dennerlein's uncompromising pursuit of intensity, drive, and the intoxication of timbre are on display in her blues composition, "Farewell To Old Friends" as she takes things yet again to the next level. The main theme of this piece is provocatively slow and is built upon the foundation supplied by the bass pipes, whose mechanical wind noise can't be concealed, as an improvised thunderstorm of uncommon originality and speed gradually rises above it. It's a spectacular piece performed by an absolutely extraordinary talent.
To put it all together, "Spiritual Movement No. 2" allows one to discover how Barbara Dennerlein is unfolding of a luxuriant soundscape that invites the listener to marvel and explore. This CD comes with a promise, each time one listens to it he is apt to discover a new aspect of his own musical world.

The recipient of many prizes and awards for her music, Barbara Dennerlein knows the value of maintaining a close and direct connection with her audience.
Performing as a duo with a drummer while touring the globe, Barbara Dennerlein has performed hundreds of concerts and developed an intimate musical symbiosis that is captured on the CDs "Love Letters" and "10th Anniversary - It's Magic", numerous TV performances and countless fans.
The duo's music is based on musical freedom. They have achieved a high level of compatibility, nurtured by mutual inspiration, which at times makes the duo sound like a large orchestra. By using two manuals, synthesizer and a foot pedal technique which has been developed to the point of perfection, Barbara Dennerlein not only creates fine melodic lines and rich chords, but she also knows how to build bass figures which have all the refined flexibility of a double bass. Barbara's duo partners are attuned to her drive and alternate between straight rhythmic backing and the use of complex percussive patterns to achieve a wide range of moods.
On nine original tracks, the music of "Love Letters" (Barbara Dennerlein's duo CD released in 2001) reveals a nuanced self-portrait. It is an impressive display of Dennerlein as both a brilliant composer and gifted musician. The music on this album abounds with creative ingenuity. Yet a vital element in her approach to music involves a sense of well-being. This is not to say that hers is a comfortably laid-back approach; her music reflects the rich variety of life and covers the full spectrum of emotions - from the tranquillity of romantic moods to explosive power driven solos, from somber contemplation to ecstasy.
The "Love Letters" titles reflect the live character of this music, which was recorded in the studio in much the same way in which Barbara Dennerlein and her musical partners perform in concert: intense concentration, but at the same time a very relaxed atmosphere of spontaneous communication and improvisation.
...
Barbara Dennerlein continues to push the envelope of what it means to master the Hammond B3 as she swirls over the keyboard and bass pedals. The rich multicoloured sounds of her Hammond B3 and the ingenious drum and percussion work blend into a near perfect whole. They continue to reach new heights, and just when one thinks they can't take it any further, they step it up and take the listener to a whole new level, or with a soulful blues number like, "The Long Way Blues" Barbara Dennerlein brings about a mellow change of pace.
The duo project displays Barbara Dennerlein's tremendous musical maturity and demonstrates that she has developed her own unmistakable stylistic identity. Her live performances are a declaration of love she feels for her audience and for music - music which engenders good feelings in both creator and listener.
