fiorgue · International Festival of Organ Mataro Barcelona

the
festival


from July 4th to
19th, 2015


All organ festivals are about organ concerts, of course. But the International Summer Organ Festival Mataró-Barcelona Jaume Isern is different for several reasons: concerts with a modern, revolutionary format, extremely high quality, but above all a very intimate relationship with the audience (a massive audience compared to the norm for organ concerts) that experiences the Festival as their Festival. The size of our audiences has earned the Organ Festival in Mataró-Barcelona with international renown. Everybody in the organ world already knows about the over one thousand people attending the final concert. For this 4th edition, and thanks to M1TV, the final concert will be offered in streaming, increasing the potential audience to anyone connected to the Internet worldwide.

“the largest organ of Catalonia”

The organ of the Basilica of Santa Maria is the heart of this Festival. The Basilica of Santa Maria will host four concerts by renowned performers, one of which will be a massive, innovative performance of the J.S.Bach’s celebrated D minor Toccata and Fugue  played by three organists on three organs. There will be a competition in which the audience will award a very special prize. All the concerts held in the Basilica will include video projection and the final concert will also include an exquisite light show to make the experience even more unique. The church of the Convent de les Carmelites will host an international concert performed by a Russian organist, an American organist and a violinist from Barcelona.

“amazing proposals like organ in the streets, a musical mass or the concert-competition”

Another innovative concert will be held at the Teatre Monumental: a concert of organ improvisations to accompany a screening of the film Nosferatu. L'orgue al carrer  (“Organ outdoors”), something that you can experience nowhere but in Mataró, will bring organ music to the streets in front of City Hall. There will also be a special Mass at Santa Maria accompanied by the organ with a high-quality repertoire. Four guided visits to the organ of Santa Maria will complete the event.









We hope that the festival will help to bring all the beauty and power of the largest historical organ in Catalonia closer to all the people of Mataró and to all of our visitors, to whom we extend our warmest welcome.

“one of the organ festivals with bigger audiences in the world”

Raúl Prieto Ramírez, artistic director
