The large Kuhn organ is the jewel of the Philharmonie. It was inaugurated on September 24, 2004, a few months after the opening of the building. The Swiss organ building company Kuhn wrote about the work of art with its 4502 pipes: "When building the new concert hall organ for the Essen Philharmonic, we had to meet many different demands: The work had to reflect the international, sophisticated character of the place without neglecting the convincing principles of traditional organ building. We also wanted to incorporate the musicians’ suggestions while remaining true to our own ideals. The symphonic instrument with mechanical action and 4502 pipes combines all these goals. As an excellent partner of the orchestra, this organ is capable of giving gravity and sonority to a wide range of musical styles.
