The Mighty Wurlitzer is one of the largest instruments of its kind on the European continent. Werner Ferdinand von Siemens, the grandson of the company founder, acquired the four-manual instrument in 1929 from the Rudolph Wurlitzer Company in the USA. The organ has 1228 pipes and more than 200 stops. In addition there is a large number of percussion and effect instruments. Jörg Joachim Riehle, who regularly plays the Mighty Wurlitzer at concerts and for the accompaniment of silent movies, explains the special features of the organ and demonstrates in various musical examples the different possibilities of sound design that the instrument offers.
