Thomas Heywood - Melbourne Town Hall Grand Concert OrganTHOMAS HEYWOOD
GRAND CONCERT ORGAN - MELBOURNE TOWN HALL
The Largest Musical Instrument in the Southern Hemisphere!
Opening Solo Concert
Thomas Heywood’s Opening Solo Concert on the world famous Melbourne Town Hall Organ - the largest musical instrument in the southern hemisphere - was one of the most significant musical events in history.
This spectacular DVD includes the complete concert programme (with three encores!) performed live to a capacity audience of over 2,000 people - including Heywood’s record-breaking world-premiere performance of his arrangement of Beethoven’s complete Fifth Symphony!
This amazing pipe organ is four storeys high with a greater floor space than five average homes. It even has a bathroom and toilet!
Although the entire concert programme is included, the DVD also features the incredible variety of organ pipes behind the organ case – some of the 10,000 organ pipes are over three storeys high!
After the Video’s sell-out success, the DVD has been completely re-edited including new pipework footage, CD quality digital sound, a Commentary by Thomas Heywood and Simone Heywood, the option of watching Thomas Heywood’s ‘superhuman’ feet on the Pedalboard Camera, and Bonus Organ History and Complete Organ Specification pages!

Beethoven’s complete Fifth Symphony
Rossini’s Overture to The Barber of Seville
Concert Fantasia on ‘Carmen’
Haydn’s Trumpet Concerto
And much more!
