Product Description

Timothy Byram-Wigfield plays concert transcriptions of works for which this organ was optimized. Since 1902 it has been located in the Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum in Glasgow, Scotland. It was built by the famed T. C. Lewis firm of London in 1901 for the Glasgow International Exhibition held in the same year and was erected in a temporary concert hall. After the exhibition, the organ was moved to the museum and a handsome classical case was built for it. Of 3m and 55 ranks, the organ enjoys a wonderfully live acoustic and it has escaped both destruction by bombs in WWII and tonal changes. It was restored in 1988.
