No orchestra, just an organ filling a concert hall with a mass of sound. Here’s proof that music is magic.
Now, try watching it performed on the largest pipe organ in Asia.
In the video below, Jonathan Scott performs his solo arrangement of ‘Nimrod’ from Elgar’s Enigma Variations on the great organ at the National Kaohsiung Center for the Arts WeiWuYing.
WeiWuYing is a performing arts centre in the Fengshan District of Kaohsiung, in Taiwan.
Completed in 2018 by Orgelbau Klais Bonn, the centre’s great instrument has 127 stops and 9,085 pipes. By all accounts, it is the largest pipe organ in Asia.
And it sounds absolutely glorious. *wipes tear from cheek*
