Vienna’s great organ is back after 30 yearsmain
The great organ in St. Stephen’s Cathedral in Vienna is about to return to service after 30 years’ silence.
Last played in 1991, the organ – installed in 1956 to replace its bombed-out predecessor – was painstakingly restored over the past three years in a small workshop under Government supervision. It is not clear why it was left idel for so long.
It will be reconsecrated by Cardinal Christoph Schönborn next month and played by organists Konstantin Reymaier and Ernst Wally.
