ORGAN RECITAL SERIES AT WALT DISNEY CONCERT HALL:
The WALT DISNEY CONCERT HALL ORGAN was inaugurated in 2004 at the opening of the Los Angeles Philharmonic’s second season in the new Hall. Designed by Frank Gehry and Manuel Rosales of Rosales Organ Builders, the Walt Disney Concert Hall organ contains pipes ranging in size from a pencil to a telephone pole, and is voiced with a wide dynamic range from pianississimo to a breathtaking fortissimo. The specially curved wood façade pipes were made by Glatter-Götz Orgelbau of solid, vertical grain Douglas fir and consist of the Violone and Bassoon basses. Behind the façade are three levels of pipes, including metal pipes made of tin and lead alloys and wood pipes made of Norwegian pine.
