The NOSPR organ is the last stage of the construction of the seat of the Polish National Radio Symphony Orchestra in Katowice. Despite the huge scale of the building within the building, the 105-voice instrument, made of nearly a million elements, harmonizes with the interior of the Great Concert Hall through the organ prospectus located centrally behind the stage, designed by KONIOR studio. The NOSPR organ one of the largest instruments in Europe. For us, it is the culmination of dreams about the implementation of a project whose history began in 2008 with a won international competition. The inaugural concert will take place on Friday, January 13, 2023. Rehearsals of the orchestra and invited stars are underway. The work composed especially for this event will be performed. The author is Maestro Esa-Pekka Salonen, who will personally conduct the first performance. The soloist will be the world-famous organist Iveta Apkalna. The last task is behind us: choosing the lighting for the room with the new instrument in the lead role. In the photos, a unique meeting of NOSPR management, musicians and architects before the dress rehearsal.
Beautiful Christmas and a Happy Ne Year 2023 wishes Tomasz Konior with the Konior Studio team
