Born in Zagreb in 1971, MARIO PERESTEGI studied organ under Professor
Andrija Galun and church music at the Institute for Church Music in
Zagreb with Professor Andjelko Klobucar. He then completed a Master's
Degree in organ performance at the Music Academy in Ljubljana,
Slovenia, in the class of Professor Hubert Bergant. Later, he
perfected his interpretation of French organ music under the tutelage
of the famous Parisian organist Marie-Claire Alain. Since 1996 he has
been an Assistant Professor at the Zagreb University, where he
teaches Aesthetics of Music and Organ Literature and at the Music
Academy in Ljubljana he lectures on organ literature.
Mr. Perestigi's concerts contain works for organ that were composed
during the Baroque period, as well as contemporary 20th century
works. His special interest lies in new compositions by modern
Croatian composers. In addition to more than 200 solo concerts, he
regularly performs as a chamber musician, giving concerts with
singers, trumpeters and violinists. He has performed many times as a
soloist with orchestras performing the works of Handel, Haydn, Bossi
and Poulenc. Perestigi is a frequent guest of music festivals such as
the Po Organ Evenings, Split Summer Festival, Evening at St. Donat,
and Rab Evenings. Beyond Croatia, he often performs throughout
Europe: Italy, Slovenia, Czech Republic, Austria, Germany and
Latvia. And in 2005, Mr.Perestigi toured Austrialia giving concerts
at Sydney Cathedral, Melbourne Cathedral and Canberra Concert Hall.
