Spain is the destination of our next PIPEDREAMS Tour (May 13-25, 2013). We will visit Barcelona, Palma de Mallorca, the Basque region (San Sebastian and Usurbil), Burgos, Toledo, Lerma and Madrid. In addition to historic 17th and 18th century organs (including several by Jordi Bosch), we'll explore the important Basque installations by famed Parisian builder Aristide Cavaillé-Coll and visit the shop of Gerhard Grenzing, whose restorations and new-made instruments are at the heart of the Spanish organ art today.
