A Research Experiment that Worked
“Cornell is known not to be afraid to engage in research experiments,” says Anette Schwartz, chair of German Studies, “and this organ is a great success. This experiment has worked.
“It was initiated by our wonderful organist Annette Richards,” adds Schwartz. “But it’s not just Annette Richards alone, it’s the university that supports these international research collaborations. Not every university in the States will do that.
“The organ will be a historic monument at Cornell University, in Ithaca, New York. People from all over the world will come here. So I’m very happy that our university is interested in these very large international collaborations. It’s great. I am a foreigner in a foreign country and I love to be in a university that’s interested in maintaining and supporting research contacts with Europe and Asia.”
