Lövstabruk is around 70km north of Uppsala, and its church houses a 1728 organ by Johan Niclas Cahman (16701737), the only surviving instrument by ‘The Father of Swedish Organ Building’. It is curated by organist Lukas Arvidsson,who is also artistic director of the Leufste Cahman Academy.
Also joining ECHO associate membership is the town of Olkusz in Poland, where a 1633 Hans Hummel/Georg Nitrowski organ has been recently restored by Flentrop Orgelbouw (see feature by its artistic director Krzysztof Urbaniak in the January 2020 issue).
