Orgelgewitter Concert - the historical concert series of the Lucerne Court Church !
30 minutes noon concert with sudden thunderstorm using the rain machine.

Thanks to the combined use of this rain machine with the huge front pipes, legendary organ thunderstorms have been created since 1862: concerts with scenes where avalanches of sound mutate into a shower of emotion.....

After more than 200 years, the world's oldest organ thunder pipes (1651) came together with the then (1862) trendy rain machine. Organ builder Haas had visions for Lucerne - after his organ buildings in the cathedrals of Bern and Basel - and hit the mark. In addition to Fribourg, Lausanne and Bern, there were now also organ thunderstorms in Lucerne, and the latter overflowed in their effect, if we are to believe Mark Twain's travel descriptions!

Railroads conquered the Rigi, the Stanserhorn and the Pilatus; thanks to embankments the Schweizerhofquai was created and Bruckner as well as Mendelssohn played on the Great Court Organ and on September 4, 1862 Clara Schumann heard the inaugural concert in the Court.

Today, listeners are still mesmerized; each thunderstorm is always uniquely different!
