Organ TivoliVredenburg, Utrecht

Organ TivoliVredenburg, Utrecht (2015-2017)

Herman Hertzberger, Dafne Wiegers

TivoliVredenburg has a world premiere: the first new baroque organ in an important concert hall, which certainly does not look baroque from the outside. There is no pipe to be seen in the 'Grote Zaal' of TivoliVredenburg, when with an organ one would expect a large front of elongated pipes. This new organ however has been integrated into the existing hall by AHH, Peter van Dijk and Van Vulpen organ builders. The envelope of the organ, that OrgelNieuws strikingly described as "discretely outstanding", consists of panels with round openings.

- Organ builder Van Vulpen made a series of short movies about the design and the building process:
