Welcome on behalf of the Cathedral Chapter.

Welcome to the Organ Festival of the Cathedral of Mallorca.

This evening's ceremony forms part of the celebrations of our most important festival, the Dedication Festival: 671 years ago, the monumental Cathedral where we are today was dedicated to the divine religion of the Christian Community by Bishop Berenguer Batle.

This 17th Cycle combines tradition and vision for the future; it aspires to valorise the organ, present in the cathedral since the 14th century.

The quality and the origins of the participating organists - from Mallorca to Russia, Italy and Germany - is proof of its international importance.

The following concerts will be performed by four internationally renowned organists: Arnau Reynés, Roland Börger, Sergej Tcherepanov and Lorenzo Ghielmi.
This year the concerts revolve around a specific theme, giving each concert a different character. The programme sheets contain texts written by the organists, as an enrichment to their musical performance.

The presence of art will be felt in two dimensions, in space centered on the architecture, and in time centered on the music. This evening, the beauty of the Cathedral will shine through both aspects of space and time.
