The organ was manufactured in Germany by the E.F. Walcker company and was inaugurated on July 6, 1929 by Alfred Sittard. In the spring of 1955, Paul Franck began the renovation and enlargement of the organ with 2,500 pipes. Half of the pipes of the old organ were melted down to make the new ones and the console was increased from five keyboards to six. The aim was to provide the Oval Hall with the most monumental organ in Europe. On June 8, 1958, with a concert by soloist Fernando Germani, the new organ was officially inaugurated after its enlargement. Currently, the organ is not operational and is awaiting a restoration process.
