    Organs and organ teachers in Ramnicu Valcea, Romania

    I have three talented teenage organ students (same family) moving from Newcastle, Australia, to Ramnicu Valcea, Romania.

    I would love to know what pipe organs there are in this city and any organists/organ teachers who we could contact to explore the organ culture there.

    Many thanks!

    There seems to not be a whole lot of pipe organs within Romania. There are a church installations listed here.

    Another pipe organ can be found here.

    A listing of universities within Romania can be found here. Surely one of those might be close to where the students or moving. Those universities will be better equipped to handle a query for organ tutors and/or instruction classes.

    Lars, re that first link to organs, when I checked English organs it only lists 2, USA lists 4, yet 12 for Australia, I don't know what their criteria are for inclusion in the list but I wouldn't consider it comprehensive!

    The following site has 242 pages of PDF on Roumanian organs, and their history, it is in Romanian and English, also has a lot of pictures from page 41 onwards

    Cheers MIKE.

    I see what you mean, Mike. The last copyright date for that site is 2012 and probably was a 'starter project' for someone doing a university class requirement and never got completed.

    Thanks for providing the better link

    Thanks for your help! It will be interesting to see what turns up when they arrive later this year. We will have lessons online to keep them going. I plan to go over there next year and join them with some other of my students, to attend the Haarlem International Organ Festival.
