As a matter of fact, Bartok wrote nothing for the organ. However, some of his piano pieces (from Microcosmos, Romanian dances, etc.) can be played nearly "as is", to the extent that you'd hardly call the result a transcription.

hey man, Airy. You are in Düsseldorf? This is next door to me. Drop by. Have half a coma in my wine cellar!

Thanks for the invitation, but not this time, I'm afraid. I left the congress before the end to visit my son in Frankfurt, and then back to France because Daly City (CA) is waiting for me next week.

That said, Düsseldorf is a fine place; there are few remainders of the old town, but nice, and nice people too.

Thank you for the  explanation.  Those rather simple pieces would indeed sounds nicely on the organ.

I like the photo, but not the cabinetry housing the pipes. Looks like  something from Ikea to me.

Beautiful images of organs in this thread!

I'll add three

Organ (installed in 1736) of Sint-Janskerk Gouda/Holland / Olympus E-M10 Pana-Leica 8-18mm


Organ of Nieuwe Kerk Amsterdam/Holland, installed by Schonat in 1652 and extended in 1668 by Hagerbeer / Nikon Z6 - 24-70mm

Nieuwe Kerk is most impressive (structure and decoration), not to mention the sound, illustrated by the best (Leonhardt, Koopman...).
It looks like the Z6 would be a worthy successor to my Df :)

Thank you for the link.  Does the church have seven organs?

it is not one church. The congregation has 5 churches with one or two organs per church

Pontigny, Bourgogne

Not particularly focused on the organ itself, but on the positional relationship of the organ with the church, lurking above the visitors at church's entrance.
