Enzio Forsblom 100 years, symposium

PhD Enzio Forsblom (1920–1996), Professor of organ music at the Sibelius Academy, was one of the leading names of Finnish organ art in the latter half of the past century.

He made a significant contribution as a performer, researcher of historical performance practices, teacher and organ designer. The greater public knew Forsblom from his Bach recordings and radio programmes. The symposium presentations shed light on Forsblom’s activities in the field of organ art in a historical context. The programme also includes musical performances with the organs at the Organo hall.
