In churches, cathedrals, town halls and even department stores, the 'King of Instruments' can produce a huge variety of sounds and inspire a wide range of music. Here are a few fine examples.
In 1711, Freiberg Cathedral in Germany commissioned a 44-stop organ with pedals from J.S. Bach's friend Gottfried Silbermann. Mozart reckoned that his instruments were 'magnificent beyond measure’. After restoration in 1983, the organ is almost exactly as the builder intended. Silbermann’s admirers refer to its ‘Silberklang’ or ‘silvery sound’.
