St. Johannis-Kirche Altona
After the old organ was completely destroyed by a fire in 1994, the church of St. Johannis decided to install an instrument that had never been available previously in the northern German organ world:
an organ of the Swiss company Kuhn, inspired by the symphonic tonality of French style based on Aristide Cavaillé-Colls (1811-1899), one of the leading organ builders of the Romantic era. The instrument was completed in 1998. And until today it is a great enrichment for Hamburg and surroundings.
