When the building was demolished, this late romantic organ managed to survive. The organ builder Klaus Becker built it again mostly true to the original in the area of former cafeteria to the teacher’s seminar – today’s Great Hall of the Musicology Institute of University of Hamburg. The organ remains unchanged in its tonal as well as technical manner. Therefore, it is very special in its value.
