EXCHANGE OF CZECH AND LUXEMBOURG ORGANISTS
In 2012, MusicEnterprise set up the first permanent exchange of organists between the two countries. Luxembourg organist Paul Kayser played at Havířov (near Ostrava) and Český Krumlov; Czech organist Markéta Schley-Reindlová played in Luxembourg.
In 2013, the latter player is due to visit Luxembourg again but also Robert Hugo, organist in residence of the Clementinum in Prague. Laurent Felten, the president of the Amis de l'Orgue, Luxembourg, will play at an organ festival in the Czech Republic
