justinf Posted October 24, 2008 Share Posted October 24, 2008 I stumbled quite by accident across two Wikipedia entries about the organ in Esztergom Basilica, Hungary. According to the first article, the instrument will eventually be the third largest in Europe. The specification listed is rather unusual. Many assertive and/or horizontal reeds: Trompeta Imperial 32', Clarins 16/8/4', Bajoncillo 4' Several large and/or unusual mixtures: Rauschwerk VIII-X 2', Colorian IV 4/9' Positiv mutations up through the None 8/9' and Undecim-Tredecim 8/11 + 8/13' Oberwerk 16' mutations from the Nasat 5 1/3' up through the Septime 2 2/7' Plenty of schnarr in the form of regals, dulzians and schalmeys all over the place Two 32' flues and two 32' reeds in the pedal, plus a Grand Cornet IV 10 2/3' Has anyone heard this instrument, in whatever form it currently exists? The first article reads, "The present organ preserves several stops from the instrument Liszt played." Is the new instrument replacing an historic organ, or was the original III/49 instrument lost or damaged in the war? I couldn't find the specification or much information at all about the organ Liszt played. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
