Johann Sebastian Bach was an extraordinary organ virtuoso, but he also understood the organ in terms of technology and sound. He allegedly regretted that he did not have "eine recht grosse und recht schöne Orgel - a really big and really beautiful organ". However, nowhere is it preserved what "his" organ should look like and sound like. At our festival, Bach's ingenious music is mediated by world-renowned organist Bálint Karosi, one of Bach's most respected performers, and he doesn't have to worry about the quality of the instrument: the great Doubek & son organ from 1997 awaits him in the Hustopeče church.
