KLAIS PIPE ORGAN

From a whisper to a thunder, DFP Klais Pipe Organ produces a multitude of musical sounds with its 2977 pipes that range in height from just over an inch to a towering 32 ft. Designed and built by eminent organ builders Johannes Klais of Bonn, Germany, the Pipe Organ was inaugurated on 17th August 1998 with a breathtaking performance by Simon Preston.

 

The design of the pipe organ has evolved over 2300 years to become an instrument capable of producing the highest pitches at the threshold of human hearing, as well as the deepest tones that cannot be replicated by any other instrument.

The pipe organ is truly the ‘King of Instruments’.
