If you don’t count the three-meter concert Grand piano, the organ, the largest instrument of classical music and probably the most difficult. Two or three rows of keys, a separate keyboard with pedals for the feet, several thousand metal tubes of different sizes and devices, and electric pump — the earliest surviving European bodies was built in the 14th century (however, if instead the pump was working, which inflated air bellows). How exactly it works on and why such a complex mechanic? Will the pianist to play the organ? And for that I love this tool? Listen to the new release “Cactus” with Alexey Skanavi.
