So, I talked to some people, and wound up starting a study right after school was out for summer. I went every day, and in three months, I was doing a prelude in church...now I'm playing for Sunday night services in addition to little bits and pieces in the morning.   Kevin C. kevin1@alaweb.com

(back) Subject: 1st lesson From: giwro@juno.com (Jonathan M Orwig) Date: Sat, 7 Mar 1998 10:42:53 -0800   Well,   As I mentioned, yesterday was to be my first lesson. It went off splendidly - she took me back to basics to unlearn some of my bad technique habits, and addressed my sight reading handicap by giving me lots of easy stuff to read through. Her ideas are very similar to mine about teaching and technique (albeit on organ instead of piano) so I think we will get along well. Now I wish I had 5 or 6 hours a day to get serious about this.... **************** Jonathan Orwig Bethany Church, Redlands, CA Evensong Music, Media and Graphics - Organ, Keyboard & Choral Music http://members.aol.com/Evnsong/pgone.html   _____________________________________________________________________ You don't need to buy Internet access to use free Internet e-mail.

(back) Subject: Thanks and new CDs From: giwro@juno.com (Jonathan M Orwig) Date: Sat, 7 Mar 1998 11:34:46 -0800   Thank you to all of those who wrote me encouragement for my first lesson!   Afterwards, I made one of my infrequent trips to Tower Records - I go infrequently because I always spend far too much money there. You see, I have found that if I don't buy it when I see it, often it is gone the next time, so I usually get 2 or 3 CDs each time...   This time was worse... I walked out 80 bucks poorer, but the proud owner of 6 (count 'em, 6!) CDs.   Damages were as follows: Dupré Complete works Vol. 1 Naxos 8.553862 (James Biery, Organist) Complete 24 Inventions for Organ Op. 50 6 Chorales from Op. 28 4 Modal Fugues Op. 63 2 Chorales Op. 59   If you haven't tried any of the Naxos CDs, DO SO! They are a budget label (5.99/6.99) and every disc I own is VERY well done - their Organ Encyclopedia features some artists who aren't the usual "big name" folks, but I have never been disappointed with the quality of performance, either in the organ CDs or the other classical stuff.   Tournemire L'Orgue Mystique - Op. 56, suites 12-25 Accord 206002 (Georges Delvallee, Organist)   Just started listening to this one - awesome organ and luscious music - the IV/82 Cavaille-Coll at Rouen sounds wonderful, as usual. I feel a shrinking sensation in my pocketbook, as the liner notes just informed me that Op. 55, suites 1-11 are also available on another 3 CD set... darn, there goes another fifty bucks ;-)   Sigfrid Karg-Elert Organ works Vol. 5 + 6 CPO 999 435-2 (Wolfgang Stockmeir, Organist) Sonatine Op. 74 Symphonic Canzona in Cm Op. 85 # 2 Music for Organ Op. 145 16 chorales from Op. 65   Haven't listened to this one yet, but I have Herr Stockmeir playing Vol 1-4 of this series, and he plays the livin' snot out of this repertoire....   <Sigh> What a way to spend a Saturday - listening to fine music while tidying up the apartment!   **************** Jonathan Orwig Bethany Church, Redlands, CA Evensong Music, Media and Graphics - Organ, Keyboard & Choral Music http://members.aol.com/Evnsong/pgone.html   _____________________________________________________________________ You don't need to buy Internet access to use free Internet e-mail.
