“To improve the standard of music in our city”, was the hope of Sir Henry Brett when he donated Auckland’s original town hall organ in 1911. There is no doubt, music making in the Queen City has advanced to an international standard over the past century, and the country’s leading concert instrument in the town hall has certainly had a part to play. This year the Organ Trust’s four concerts will showcase some of New Zealand’s leading organists, and hopefully some friends from Australia.
HIDDEN BEHIND the beautiful 1911 façade is an array of thousands of pipes, dozens of bellows, and a network of sophisticated wiring and technology. The 2010 Orgelbau Klais organ at the Auckland Town Hall (303 Queen Street, Auckland, New Zealand) has gained a reputation as one of the world’s finest concert hall instruments, a reputation endorsed by leading international organists.
