İstanbul Kilise Orgları Ekibi tarihi enstrümanlarımızın onarımında ve bu enstrümanlarla etkinlikler düzenlenmesinde dünya standartlarında çalışmaktadır.

Bu hususta, Opus Amadeus Uluslararası Istanbul Org Festivali etkinliğinde St. Esprit Katedrali’nde bulunan 596 numaralı Gebrüder-Rieger yapımı orgumuzun bakım ve akord hizmetlerini sunuyor olmaktan gurur duyuyoruz.

Ayrıca ülkemize ziyarette bulunmuş, festivalde sahne almış ya da kilise ziyareti sırasında bizimle tanışıp farklı orglarımızı deneme imkanı bulmuş sanatçıların bu konuda bize geri dönüşlerini de önemsiyor ve burada sizinle paylaşmaktan memnuniyet duyuyoruz.

It was a very great pleasure to play an organ concert in Istanbul, last December 9th 2019 at the Holy Spirit Church.

The organ was very well maintained thanks to the high professionality of Istanbul Pipe Organ Team that was always present to keep the instrument at the highest standard!

Thanks to the kind offer of the Team, I was thrilled to have this wonderful opportunity to see and play several organs in Istanbul. I must say all of the organs which the Team showed me were really amazing. Each of them was unique, had their own charme and character. In Europe, it might be hard to find a city with a comparable number of different historical organs, at least in Switzerland where I live. The pipes, stops and other parts of the organs were kept in their original forms at least for a hundred years or longer and have been carefully renovated by this enthusiastic team led by organ builder Tarkan Sendal. I could feel he loves this amazing instrument as much as I do.

Among the organs I had the opportunity to play, my favourite was the Gebrüder-Rieger Organ in the Kript of the Church of St. Anthony for its wonderful sounds those give such beautiful colors.

The organs must be taken care of and regularly played, otherwise it would be like a bird that does not sing anymore. I hope Istanbul Pipe Organ Team will be actively working in this field and I would love to visit them back again.
Many thanks once more to Istanbul Pipe Organ Team
