Clarín Opus II

Mainz (Alemania)

2013

Organ Hall of the Hochschule für Musik Johannes Gutenberg-Universität

Upon request from the Hochschule für Musik in Mainz, this instrument was built following faithfully the aesthetics, musical features and technique of the Castilian organs from the 18th century. The fact that its main purpose is teaching proves its usefulness for the understanding of a specific repertoire as well as the features of the historical instruments of a very wide geographical area. It is also very useful for the study of the oldest repertoire of European music.
