The protective measures for the organ recital are based on the protection concept for St. Jacob’s Church. The number of listeners is limited to one third of the ordinary capacity of the church (maximum of about 100 people). In order to avoid that we have to turn away visitors on site, we would like to thank you if you pre-register via form.

Bach’s Toccata and Fugue in D Minor opens a programme that provides a unique musical journey from the 17th Century to the present day. We are delighted to welcome back Swiss virtuoso organist, Benjamin Righetti who will display the full potential of the superb Goll Organ including his own arrangements of Rachmaninov, Fauré and Berlioz.

Audience Choice! This year Benjamin Righetti has invited audience members to submit their favourite organ piece to Klosters Music ( by 24th July. He will then select a piece lasting no more than ten minutes and include it in his recital.
