The queen of instruments

The organ is called “the queen of instruments” and for a good reason: no other acoustic instrument is so varied in sound and dynamics, from the weakest, solitary tone to massive chords that make it vibrate in floors and walls. It will for sure do so in the Great Hall in Gothenburg Concert Hall when the sound from the over 9000 organ pipes fills the room.
