From its beginnings in 1980 as the Dublin International Organ & Choral Festival, Pipeworks has brought to Irish audiences a diverse programme of music-making with the organ at its centre, fully exploiting not only the wonderful range of instruments to be found in Ireland but the splendid cathedrals, churches and concert halls which house them. Pipeworks mounts a triennial ten-day festival centred on the Pipeworks International Organ Competition which attracts young virtuosi from every corner of the world and which has secured Ireland a respected position in the international organ-playing scene. The competition features a jury of the world's finest players and interpreters, and links Ireland to prestigious venues and institutions throughout the world. Under the artistic directorship of Mark Duley, Pipeworks has expanded its remit to explore Ireland's organ heritage. In non-festival years, Pipeworks presents recital series and has become known for its complete-works series, having presented the complete organ works of J.S. Bach, Felix Mendelssohn, Dieterich Buxtehude and Olivier Messiaen, as well as the complete organ symphonies of Louis Vierne, all given by organists resident in Ireland.
