The Dobson organ, the firm’s Opus 76 with nearly 7000 pipes, is the largest mechanical-action concert hall organ in the United States, and the focal point of the cello-shaped, 2500-seat Verizon Concert Hall designed by Rafael Viõly. Mr. Jacobs performed his program from memory, recorded January 30, 2007. Listen to a previous program, A View of the Verizon, drawn from performances recorded during this organ’s 2006 inaugural festival.
