Pipe Organs of Malaysia
PETRONAS PHILHARMONIC HALL
Johannes Klais Orgelbau GmbH & Co.
The Klais Pipe Organ
The Klais Pipe Organ in this hall
was designed and built by eminent organ builders Johannes Klais in
Bonn, Germany. A façade inspired by the angklung, a traditional
Malay music instrument, the organ adds a further dimension to the range
of musical performances presented in the concert hall. The 44-stop
tracker action organ has three manuals and a pedal division, mechanical
couplers, electric stop action, and an electronic memory system for the
pre-selection of registration combinations. There are 4,700 pipes
ranging in length from the smallest (a little over an inch) to the
towering 32 ft rank in the pedal division.
Petronas Philharmonic Hall,
literally Dewan Filharmonik Petronas (DFP) in Malay, is the first
classical music hall in Malaysia that is solely dedicated to music.
Located at the bottom of the elevated Petronas Twin Towers, this
strikingly-beautiful hall is outfitted with the latest services,
luxurious seating and has outstanding acoustics. This hall is also the
quarters to the Malaysian Philharmonic Orchestra (MPO).
Specification of the organ is:
