How does an organ work? What different sounds do the individual stops have? And how loud can the organ play? And how softly? These and many other questions will be answered in-depth at this workshop (in German) by organist Thomas Cornelius. But it’s not confined to theory alone: with a couple of pipes and some organ samples on the computer to help him, he gives a deep insight into the way this versatile instrument works. If attend this course, you’re sure to discover completely new sides of the »king of all instruments« the next time you go to an organ recital. The Elbphilharmonie organ can be heard in its full splendour on 17 April 2022, when organist Bernard Foccroulle performs at the Elbphilharmonie.

Elbphilharmonie+ is a programme that opens up different ways of looking at the music performed at the Elbphilharmonie – either to supplement a concert, or as an experience in its own right. Interdisciplinary encounters and exhibitions form part of the Elbphilharmonie+ programme, as do concert talks and films shown in museums, libraries, cinemas and community centres.
