These performances were recorded on January 22, 2013. The featured instrument, a Swiss–built 1974 Kuhn mechanical–action organ of 85 ranks, was re–inaugurated in November 2010 following the hall's renovation. It remains the only classical pipe organ in a public concert hall in New York City. You can hear its re–inauguration concert, played by Paul Jacobs, on PIPEDREAMS Program No. 1112, Bach in the Big Apple.

During the academic term, students of Paul Jacobs engage in performance and discussion during a weekly two–hour Organ Class (Thursdays from 11AM-1PM) featuring the 57–rank Holtkamp organ in the school's Paul Hall. The public is invited to attend as 'observers'…free!

We offer special thanks to Juilliard President Joseph W. Polisi and audio engineer Robert Taibbi, whose helpful cooperation and good work made this program possible.
