Trnava hosts organists

AMERICAN organ player James David Christie from Boston opened the Trnava Organ Days with his concert on August 17. Now in its ninth year, the festival will run until October 1.
The Trnava Organ Days, as the title suggests, focuses on presenting organ music, but it does not avoid including other instruments in its repertoire. Such is the case with the second chamber concert of the event, to be delivered by a Slovak trio comprised of a cembalist, flutist, and cellist, scheduled for August 22.
