Župna Crkva Sv. Martina, Sveti Lovreč
Sveti Lovreč, 31.08.2020.
During 20 years of activity, the International organ festival Organum Histriae executed many attractive programs through which the tendency was on the popularisation of organ cultural heritage and to raise awareness about the importance of its protection and restoration, also very important for development of cultural tourism in Istria. This year's 21st Organum Histriae, in the period from 31st of August till 6th of September 2020, will walk us through a few fantastic locations with performances held by excellent musicians. The festival will be opened with glorious Fanfare by our eminent composer Anđelko Klobučar in one of the oldest Romanesque buildings in Istria – Parish church of St Martin in Sv. Lovreč Pazenatički. This church hides one very rare pearl – organ built in 1735 by famous Petar Nakić (Pietro Nacchini), restored by Premiata Fabbrica Organi F. Zanin in 2013. Our prominent Croatian musicians, gathered in a trio called Trio Seraphim, Monika Cerovčec (soprano), Vedran Kocelj (trumpet) and organist Pavao Mašić (double winner of Organum Histriae's competition Andrea Antico da Montona) will give us a splendid musical evening under a program title Eternal Source of Light Divine. At the same organ, our brilliant, young organist with an international career, Ivo Mrvelj will give his Hommage à Božidar Grga.
