Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Frank Gehry's Walt Disney Concert Hall is a stunning piece of architecture whose curved metal skin is known worldwide. The hall's rich wood interior allows musicians and listeners to dwell inside an instrument of exquisite craftsmanship. The centerpiece of the auditorium is a skewed arrangement oforgan pipes located behind the stage. This organ represents the culmination of 16 years of design, planning, and construction, and it has been a reverberating success since its inaugural concert in the fall of 2004. Forest of Pipes includes fascinating interviews with key figures in the organ's designand construction, including organ designer Manuel Rosales, organ builder Caspar Glatter-Goetz, as well as Gehry himself. Illustrations include drawings, construction photos, and magnificent portraits of the finished instrument by photographer Grant Mudford. World-famous organists describe their experiences performing on one of the most significant new organs built in the last 100 years.
