Cavaillé-Coll Organ of Great Hall of Moscow Conservatory
On the express recommendation of Peter Tchaikovsky, an organ by the Cavaillé-Coll company (owned by Charles Mutin) was installed in the Great Hall of the Moscow Conservatory. In 1900, the completed instrument was first presented at the World’s Fair in Paris in the Russian pavilion before being moved to Moscow and inaugurated there in May 1901. The French-Symphonic disposition, typical of Cavaillé-Coll, consists of 48 stops distributed over three manuals and pedal. As a special feature, there are two additional reed stops en chamade on the third manual, which sound powerful and very present due to their horizontal arrangement.
The Tchaikovsky Conservatory in Moscow is one of the most prestigious in the world. The magnificent building dates back to the 18th century and houses one of the most famous concert halls in the world. In the Great Hall seats around 1800 listeners. The reason for its acoustic excellence is the ceramic hollow bodies that are integrated into the flat vaulted ceiling. Even to be invited to this hall for the Tchaikovsky Competition is an honour in itself, winning a prize is usually the start of a great career. The organ from the Cavaillé-Coll workshop is considered to be as the most important historical organs in Russia.
