Ines Maidre’s virtuosity and passionate musicianship, combined with exquisite stylistic taste and outstanding art of registration, have always been emphasized by the critics. An excellent interpreter of early keyboard music as well as a virtuoso performer of romantic and modern organ works she offers varied and exciting programs for all types of organs from her vast repertoire. In her passion to introduce organ music to a broader audience, Ines Maidre has created several original programs with a special thematic focus, such as “Bells in the Organ,” “Swan Songs for the Organ,” “Cathedral  by Giant Savings">Windows,” “In Bach’s Footsteps,”  “Litany of the Dance,” “Tangomania,” which have remarkably increased the number of organ loving audience at her recitals.

 As part of her scholarly activities she has given master classes and lectures at Sielius Academy in Finland, Indiana University in Bloomington, Ohio University in Athens  and organist conferences in Bethesda church in Ames, Iowa, Minneapolis Mindekirke, Viljandi Culture college, Tartu StPeter's church etc
