The 59th Magadino
International Organ Music Festival

It is with great pleasure that after long months of silence the organ of the Parish Church of Magadino will be played again for fans of organ music.

The Management Committee, in agreement with the Artistic Commission, has decided in compliance with the health provisions of the Confederation and the Canton to propose a "different" format reserved only for emerging musicians from Switzerland.

Five concerts will be offered, on Tuesdays, Fridays and Sundays (see attached calendar) and the exhibition will take place from 6 to 20 July 2021.
Entry to the concerts will be free.
The solution adopted for this year will certainly have the advantage of improving the reputation of the Festival which in 2022 will celebrate a laudable 60 years of organ concerts in Magadino.

In due course the full program will be included on the Festival’s website.

The festival


A small country, Magadino, a small organ, but constantly and diligently being improved and extended by the initial good stock of Italian organ tradition; a great festival, which thanks to its international nature and to the frequent images and broadcasts by RSI [Swiss television] is well known almost worldwide.



The organ


The parish church of Magadino has had an organ, built in 1902 by Natale Balbiani, since the beginning of the century.


The sound of this first organ was incorporated into the new organ in two manuals built by the artisan family Mascioni of Cuvio in 1951.
