Ever since 1991, in Timiºoara, under the aegis of The University of West of Timiºoara –The Faculty of Music, have taken place five editions of the festival that, at first, was called “The Days of the Organ Music”, later, due to international participation, changed its denomination into “The International Festival The Days of the Organ Music”. Now, at the sixth edition, the festival received the name TIMORGELFEST, having as subtitle “The Days of the Organ Music from Banat”. Ever since its first editions, the festival has polarized the interest of the people of Timisoara, owe to a remarkable participation from the following great organists: Lehotka Gabor (Professor of organ at the Academy of Music Frans Liszt, Budapest, Hungary), Jean Luc Salique (France), Horst Gehann, Franz Metz, Dieter Hubov (Germany), Dalibor Miklavcik (Slovenia), Ana Babadjan (Georgia) and also from Romanian prestigious organists like Hans Eckart Schland, Ursula Philippi, Felician Roºca and others. Each edition, the concerts held by the students at the Organ section from the Faculty of Music from Timiºoara played an important role. The edition of the festival from 2003 was honoured by the participation of students from The Academy of Music Franz Liszt from Budapest and The Academy of Music from Cluj Napoca. Thus, the students from Timiºoara and especially the audience and the teaching staff had the opportunity of becoming familiar with a very elevated organ repertory. The students from The Faculty of Music of Timiºoara benefited from a very useful exchange materialized through concerts and intensive classes with different themes: The Music of the French Romanticism, The Masterpieces of Bach, The Organ Music of the Transylvanian Baroque, The Contemporary Modern Music, The Ornaments and principles of execution and others. This sixth edition aims at widening the perspective of the place of concerts, aim that will be achieved through a series of concerts in the region of Banatul Montan (the mountain region of Banat) (Reºiþa and Caraºova). A special event will take place on April, 9th, 2005, when, along with the opening of the festival, will be inaugurated the Wegenstein organ from The Romano-Catholic Church “Millenium” of Timisoara, after thourough repairs, thanks to the Pansipp company from Odorheiu Secuiesc. A second event of great importance marks the creation of a musical work for organ of maestro Eduard Terényi at his 70th anniversary. More over, part of the festival is dedicated to a series of concerts and conferences that we hope will bring you not only the joy of the organ music but also the satisfaction of appreciating the organ music from Timiºoara as a decisive and formative element in the Eastern European music of the kind.
