The Montreal Symphony Gets A New $4 Million Organ

“It is an imposing instrument with 83 stops (types of sounds) and 6,489 pipes—more than 25 tons of high-octane power, brilliance, flexibility and coloristic variety. But the organ’s highest achievement is how beautifully it blends into the aural fabric of the orchestra and, a few quibbles aside, how well it sounds in the pleasingly reverberant 1,900-seat hall.”
