Change of cast of Friday’s organ concert Praise

Dear listeners,

due to illness, we have to change the cast of Friday’s concert Praise. Organist Višeslav Jaklin cannot come to play. Instead, the concert will be performed by two two excellent organists, Jan Šprta and Johannes Zeinler and the program remains almost unchanged.

You know Jan Šprta from our festival, when five years ago he captivated listeners in the basilica in Old Brno. The technically brilliant organist has been working in Switzerland for a long time.

Organist Johannes Zeinler was the first Austrian to win prestigious awards at international organ competitions in St. Petersburg. Albans (2015) and the Grand Prix de Charters (2018).

We thank both of them for saving the concert, and we wish Višeslav a speedy recovery.
