SYBRAND JÜRGEN ZACHARIASSEN HAS DIED

 

Sybrand Jürgen Zachariassen, former director of Danish organ building company Marcussen & Søn, died on 26 February. Born in 1931, he succeeded his father as president of the family firm in 1960, and over the next 30 years the company built large tracker-action instruments in Copenhagen, Linz Cathedral, Lübeck, and the Grote Kerk in Rotterdam, as well as undertaking the restoration of the organs in St Bavo, Haarlem, the Nieuwe Kerk, Amsterdam, Roskilde Cathedral, and Buxtehude´s organ in Sct. Mariae Church, Helsingør. Under his management the firm widened its commissioning base, most notably in the 1980s to Japan and the USA. In 2002 he was succeeded as president by Claudia Zachariassen.

Nothing on the website of Marcussen & Son when I checked this evening.
