III Setmana Internacional d’Orgue

The III Setmana Internacional d’Orgue (3rd International Organ Week) took place all week this week at the Reial Basilica de Sant Francesc in Palma. Tonight, British organist Matthew Martin from London’s Westminster Cathedral will give the last concert of the series, interpreting music by Johann Sebastian Bach, Paul Hindemith, Nicolas de Grigny, António Correa Braga and Marie-Claire Alain. Tonight’s concert commences at 20h15. Admission is free. There will also be a giant screen to watch the maestro perform.

Matthew Martin read music at Magdalen College, Oxford, where he was organ scholar. He then went on to the Royal Academy of Music, London, as a post-graduate student and subsequently continued his studies in Paris with Marie-Claire Alain. He was recently elected an Associate of the Royal Academy of Music (ARAM), where he is a teacher of keyboard skills and organ improvisation.

The organ at the Basilica de Sant Francesc was built by Jordi Bosch in 1772. The organ was carefully reconditioned in 2008 by the formidable organ restorers, Gerhard Grenzing. But, even though I am telling you about the organ at the church of Sant Francesc in Palma, I am showing you a photo of the not yet reconditioned organ at the Església Parroquial de Sant Miquel in Felanitx.

The photo was chosen from my archive. It was taken in Felanitx, Mallorca, Baleares, Spain. The date: September 27th, 2009. The time was 14:17:15.
