C. B. Fisk organ at the Morton H. Meyerson Symphony Center in Dallas
The Fisk organ of the Dallas Symphony Hall, built in 1992, combines several European influences in its disposition. A German-Baroque Hauptwerk is joined by a Dutch-inspired Positiv and a French Schwellwerk. The tuba movement (IV. manual) is designed according to the English model of the organ builder Henry Willis. An unusual feature is that a large part of the pedal organ is also playable as a so-called “resonance” organ on either the I. or IV. manual. This complements the Baroque Hauptwerk and makes it a Symphonic Hauptwerk. The organ has a total of 57 stops.
The Eugene McDermott Concert Hall at the Morton H. Meyerson Symphony Center Dallas is hailed as one of the finest concert halls in the world and is the venue of the famous Dallas Symphony Orchestra. This concert hall is modelled on the design of the Vienna Concert Hall, i.e. with the stage at the end wall and balconies and tiers running around three sides. The warm red tones of the woods and the sophisticated lighting design create a very special atmosphere.

Stephen Tharp began his international concert career in 1987, still as a teenager, and has since circled the world several times – in more than 60 tours and more than 1500 concerts on major organs – as a virtuoso, chamber musician, lecturer at master classes and jury member. Numerous works have been dedicated to him, he has given numerous world premieres and for selected occasions he also composes himself, for example his “Easter Fanfares” for the inauguration of the new tuba high pressure register in Cologne Cathedral. Several of his 16 solo albums have won prizes. He was “Performer of the Year” of the American Guild of Organists. https://www.stephentharp.com/
