Interview with Markus and Jacob from Orgelblau

The Basilica of the Pilar is without a doubt the emblem of our city and we, the citizens of Zaragoza feel very proud of it. One of the hidden gems of the Basilica is the organ that you can find inside. An instrument with 72 registers and four keyboards with a Renaissance acoustic box that dates back to 1462.

Thanks to an exhaustive restoration, the organ sounded again with all its splendor. In our hotel we had the chance to host the fabulous team in charge of working on the restoration and modernization of this instrument. This team is back again, and it would be better if there were no need to but, unfortunately, the organ needed to be dismantled and carefully cleaned. The goal is to finish all the works and have the organ ready for October 12th, the Day of the Pilar.

In this Interview´s Edition we have the pleasure to present you the team in charge of the works, his name is Orgelblau.

Chris Duffy in Hotel Sauce Zaragoza

Chris Duffy: Every city has its own unique beauty, you just need to find it and express it in your own personal way – and that is in the eye of the artist

You are the son of one of the most important XXth Century photographers. In which way are you involved in Photography? Being the son of a famous photographer is hard not to be involved in photography one way or another, especially as two of Duffy’s best friends were also famous British photographers; David Bailey and Terence Donovan. The three of them were constantly discussing photography and although they were great friends they were also great rivals but there was always a great passion and love for the medium and I remember as kid their discussions could go on for hours.
