Kaohsiung, National Kaohsiung Center for the Arts (Weiwuying), Klais-Orgel
In 2018, the currently largest organ in Asia with 127 stops was inaugurated. The instrument comes from the renowned German organ-building company, Klais from Bonn and, strictly speaking, consists of two instruments, which can, however, also be played together: A large Symphonic organ and a much smaller Baroque-inspired organ. Visually, both instruments are sisters, as the facade design was inspired by the bamboo pipes typical of the region.
The National Kaohsiung Center for the Arts (Weiwuying) is the central cultural center in Taiwan. Starting in 2003, a former military area in the city of Kaohsiung in the south and the complex was completed in 2018. It houses four cultural venues: An opera house, a venue for theatre, a chamber music hall and a large concert hall with almost 2,000 seats, rising around the central stage according to the Weinberg model. Sound sails above the stage can be varied in height and orientation to create optimum acoustical conditions depending on the cast.
