In this format, we always present one of our venues and the corresponding organ(s), with the selection being made via audience voting by email and on our social media channels.
The last presentation within this series before the summer break of the project Orgelfrühling 2020.2021.transformations takes us once again to southern Styria, to the pilgrimage church in St. Veit am Vogau.
Here, too, one of the most valuable baroque organs in the country can be found. It was originally built for the Mariazell Basilica before being moved to its present location in St. Veit. Built by Johannes Liechtenauer or Christoph II Egedacher in 1689 / 1753, it underwent an extensive restoration by the Swiss organ building company Kuhn in 2002.
