Montserrat Abbey, Barcelona

Montserrat Abbey, Barcelona

Thursday, February 19 at 10:00 pm

The new organ in the Basílica of Barcelona’s Montserrat Abbey is the largest in Catalonia and one of the largest in Europe. Built by Albert Blancafort and his studio and completed in 2010, it has 4,242 pipes and 63 registers. The Montserrat International Organ Festival invited virtuosos to perform on the new instrument, and tonight we’ll hear British organist John Scott and German organist Christoph Schönfelder, as well as Capella Lacensis from the Benedictine Maria Laach Abbey of Rhineland-Palatinate.
