New Organ in the Monastery of Montserrat
(I don't think anyone has posted these links before - apologies if I am repeating a post.)
A musician friend, who spends his time between London and Barcelona, has just sent me these links showing the new organ in Montserrat. The organ is built by Blancafort, who also built the organ in La Sagrada Familia, Barcelona. His atelier is in Collbató at the foot of the mountain. A work of mine was performed on the organ in the Collbató church, also built by Blancafort and only a few hundred metres from his studio. My memory of the organ is of the beautiful flute sounds and the trompeta de batalla with horizontal pipes. I believe he is one of two organ builders in Catalunya, and is the son of a well-known composer.
