The Wynnstay Organ

Description

Join Ben Miller as he explores the colourful history of the Wynnstay Organ, part of the collection at National Museum Wales in Cardiff. Made in the 18th-century by Robert Adam, the organ was commissioned by the eccentric Sir William Watkins Wynn, ‘the Welsh Maecenas’. Amongst others, Ben gets to hear from organ enthusiast Richard Coles, Welsh language musician Gwyneth Glyn, and Icelandic artist Ragnar Kjartansson, whose 2018 performance piece ‘The Sky in a Room’ featured the organ prominently.
