The Utopa Baroque Organ

From 2012 until 2018, designing and building the Utopa Baroque Organ (working title: "The New Baroque Organ", hence the title of Report #5/1) constituted a major Orgelpark Research Project. The Utopa Baroque Organ combines an uncompromised historically inspired sound concept (referring to the organs Zacharias Hildebrandt built in Johann Sebastian Bach's region and time) with digital technology (which provides access to the Hildebrandt sound concept in formerly unthinkable ways). The organ was inaugurated on March 21st, 2018; Orgelpark Research Report #5/1 en Orgelpark Research Report #5/2 give a detailed account of the preparations and the results of the Utopa Baroque Organ Project. 


The three possibilities for reading this Report can be found at the right of this page. These include: online (with audio), offline (without audio) and on papier. To receive the paper version, you will be asked to fill in a form.
