Dear Forum members,

 

maybe some will be interested to hear that the famous Vienna Musiverein is going to have a new organ. It will be the fourth in a succession of more or less successful instruments. The original 1872 III/52 Ladegast, behind the beautiful facade in Corinthian style, was replaced in 1907 by a IV/71 Rieger (then Jägerndorf), rebuilt an enlarged to IV/80 in 1948 by Viennese builder Molzer. This organ was replaced entirely by a new IV/100 Walcker, built to a specification by Karl Richter, and not at all up to its task. Forum member Karl Bernhardin Kropf has first-hand-feet-and-ears experience here.

 

The new organ will be built by Rieger of Schwarzach (Vorarlberg, Austria). On the German "Orgelforum" the planned stoplist was posted. It appeared in a Rieger leaflet. So this is going to be the organ that will have to match one of the world's finest – or even the finest, as some believe – orchestras. Here it is:

P. S.

As to "Orchesterwerk" and "Orchesterpedal", after some speculation, I tend to believe that these divisions are going to sit below the facade, on orchestra level. The space has been used for pipework of previous organs, but not by Ladegast.
