2013 Pipedreams Tour - Pipe Organs of Spain

The itinerary for this year's tour of The Pipe Organs of Spain took PIPEDREAMS host Michael Barone and his coach full of 40 organ-loving friends to Barcelona, Palma de Mallorca, Burgos, Toledo and Madrid for opportunities to hear and play Iberian instruments ranging in size from four to seventy-one stops. They'll also travelled to the Basque region in the north to experience its romantic-era Cavaillé-Coll organs, visited the famous monastery at Montserrat and the organ-building shop of Gerhard Grenzing, where they met iconic teacher and recitalist Montserrat Torrent, and later enjoyed an after-hours presentation of the new Blancafort installation in the Gaudi-designed Basilica Sagrada Familia.
