Andueza, Juan de
- Guy Bourligueux
(b Lerín, Spain, c1650; d Madrid, Spain 1686). Spanish organ builder. He worked with his father-in-law, Gabriel de Ávila, maker to the royal chapel at Madrid, on the construction of the organ in Charles II’s palace (1675–6), and succeeded him in his court office. In 1670–72 he had built the magnificent instrument for the Magistral Church of Saints Justo and Pastor, Alcalá de Henares, highly praised by the organist Andrés Lorente. Andueza also built the organs at the Collegiate Church of Santa María la Mayor, Talavera de la Reina (1672–3); the Church of Santiago, Alcalá de Henares (1679); and the Convent of the Holy Trinity, Madrid (1683). An inspired innovator, he was one of the most brilliant representatives of the late 17th-century Madrid school. He taught the organ builder Domingo de Mendoza.L.
