Traditional organ building

in Sieversdorf

How many pipes does an organ have? What is hidden inside? How is an instrument voiced? What is the difference between a romantic, baroque and modern organ? Christian and Konrad Scheffler will be happy to answer these questions during a workshop tour or a short course on organ building techniques.

What's special? 

  • Insights into the profession of an organ builder, old craftsmanship practices and working on a monument at eye level with history
  • Use of various natural materials
  • Experience music with "all" your senses (see, hear and even feel when the low notes tingle in your stomach)
  • Enjoy the "open sky" over Sieversdorf and the peace and quiet
  • Learn about sustainability in terms of quality and durability, as well as topicality

... as they were built by Wilhelm Sauer, Ladegast, Walcker, Goll, Grüneberg, Rühlmann, Schlag & Söhne, Steinmeyer, Furtwängler & Hammer and many others between ca. 1850 and ca. 1930.

The restoration as well as the complete reconstruction of highly romantic organs are the main focus of the Christian Scheffler organ workshop. The conscious handling of historical concepts and dispositions and the high technical and tonal value of the instruments is their commitment.
