The Melbourne Town Hall Grand Organ.
In 2001, the grand organ of the town hall in the Australian city Melbourne was restored. The organ was originally built in 1929 by Hill, Norman & Beard. At the inauguration of the new instrument, early and new compositions of Australian composers were performed.
Calvin Bowman plays the organ in very diverse works, from hushed to abundant.
