From its beginnings in 1980 as the Dublin International Organ & Choral Festival, Pipeworks has brought to Irish audiences a diverse programme of music-making with the organ at its centre, fully exploiting not only the wonderful range of instruments to be found in Ireland, but the splendid cathedrals, churches and concert halls which house them.
Pipeworks has expanded its remit to explore Ireland’s organ heritage. In non-festival years, Pipeworks presents recital series and has become known for its complete-works series, having presented the complete organ works of J.S. Bach, Felix Mendelssohn, Dieterich Buxtehude and Olivier Messiaen, as well as the complete organ symphonies of Louis Vierne, all given by organists resident in Ireland.
