INTERNATIONAL ORGAN FESTIVAL “CITTA’ DI BERGAMO”

Description

The world’s best organ players will perform in the most fascinating churches of our town, during a month rich of events, where music charm merges with the beauty of historical places.

This amazing festival has been collecting some of the most famous names of the international organ music scene for 27 years: and it’s going to welcome some excellent personalities.
A melting-pot of styles and experiences perfectly matching some of the most beautiful and charming churches of Bergamo, full of frescos and unique works of art. Right here, some of the most ancient and precious organs are shielded, like the Serassi in the Church of Sant’Alessandro della Croce or the Bossi one in the Santa Maria Maggiore Church, just to mention but a few. Interpretation and improvisation are the two main focuses of every concert in programme, where the masters of antique music meet the youngest talents for a fascinating process of constant contamination.
