With a total of 186 stops, Milan Cathedral today houses the largest organ in Italy and the eighth largest organ in the world! The core of the instrument dates from 1938 and was built by the Italian organ builders, Tamburini and Mascioni. A major reconstruction was carried out by Tamburini in 1984, whereby those parts of the organ which had previously been housed at the eastern end of the side aisles were now combined in new organ cases directly next to the two historic Renaissance cases to the left and right of the chancel.

Paolo Oreni, a multilingual Italian, was influenced by frequent encounters with Jean Guillou, whose Zurich courses he attended. With virtuosity and joy in playing, as well as grandiose improvisations, he inspires audiences in his concerts and as a lecturer in master classes throughout Europe. Oreni is an expert in organ building. He designed his own transportable pipe organ “Wanderer”, which will be used with five modules at this concert.

In the meantime, he is active in Switzerland at various churches.

Marco Lo Muscio is equally at home on the organ as on the concert grand piano. He has written compositions for both instruments, which are performed by renowned colleagues such as Thomas Trotter, David Briggs and others. Marco gives concerts all over Europe and the USA – but also in his Roman home, which he has transformed into a “chamber of curiosities” with many antiques and curiosities, where you can listen to him in private concerts.



Johannes Skudlik

The Conductor, Johannes Skudlik got to know Jean Guillou as a student in Paris and was on friendly terms with him for many years. He conducted the French premiere of the “Révolte” in Saint-Eustache in Paris after facilitating the German premiere in Landsberg am Lech, from where he has realised his musical projects as a concert organist and in European festivals for over 40 years.
