Organ in Friedrich-Ebert-Halle

Location: Friedrich-Ebert-Halle Harburg/Eißendorf
Alter Postweg 19
21075 Hamburg
Builder: Rudolf von Beckerath (Hamburg)
Year of construction: 1951/52
Number of stops: 43
Setting: 3 Manuale und Pedal

Being the third instrument produced by the company, it was built in 1951/52 for the Friedrich Ebert Hall, which comprehended approximately 1,100 seats. Particularly noteworthy is the setting system, especially designed for this instrument, which can be “programmed” via two drawers which are able to be pulled out, but otherwise – apart from the controls such as buttons and Pistons – are not visible. The neo-baroque construction principles are reflected in the disposition of Great, Chest, Upper divisions and pedalboard, as well as in the pipe scales and dimensioning of wind channels.
