Pierre Lauwers Posted September 24, 2008 Share Posted September 24, 2008 Michael Engler "the young" (1688-1760) is seen as the most important organ builder in Silesia during the 18th century. He built four three manual organs, of which two are still with us, the one in Krzeszow Abbey (D: Grüssau) being the least altered (modifications by Schlag & Söhne in 1874). It is a big organ with 54 stops. A particularity -among others- was the possibility to play the Rückpositiv a semitone lower by transposition, while several pedal stops were tuned according to the chamber pitch ! This exceptionnaly important and interesting baroque organ has just been restored by the excellent firm of Jehmlich, Dresden. It will be re-opened with a dedicated church service this October, 12. Here is the specification with some pictures: http://staff.elka.pw.edu.pl/~wkaminsk/ORG_...rodzeniaNMP.htm Pierre Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
