    It wasn't long ago that Gert began to play organ by ear, then learned to read music. He soon set a goal to become an internationally known concert organist. I believe this is his first live concert outside his native country, The Netherlands.

    Gert's adaptation from a piano score of Dvorák's symphonic work (shown at 50:35) shows great musical talent, as do his other arrangements which began as improvisations.


    The Dvorák piece can also be seen here, with about 50 changes of registration:
