Sizzling strings, mucho foundation, but a clean Diapason chorus complete with mixtures.

From: cremona84000@webtv.net (bruce cornely) Date: Mon, 4 May 1998 08:06:17 -0400   Chris, (and everyone else) I wish more people would write descriptions of organs they play, the rooms, the windows, the cases and, yeah... why not, tell about the exterior of the building with the oak trees forming a canopy over the building, or if you're in the city the dog-pee on the cornerstone. Most organists are artistic in other ways and so many on this list have shown that they are wonderful improvisors of words (even though some use their talent for EVIL!). Chris' description of the "eye watering sweetness of a tapered, low-tin dolce" was almost as good as hearing it first hand (and it sure would be more fun to read than the claptrap attacks that periodically appear), and the Schultz diapasons gliding around the church like a procession of nuns, and I'd love to hear some more Binns diapason chorus. I hope Chris will post more, but if not to the list then, as has become the trendy request, POST IT TO MEEEEEEEEEEEE PRIVATELY when you wish to wax nostalgaeic. That's the only way some of us get to travel. Thanks again, Chris   PS: (whose) hehe   bruce o h s __________ a g o cornely o o __________ o o ........... cremona84000@webtv.net ...........

(back) Subject: Newark NJ Cathedral concert review From: Adam and Christine Levin <levins@westnet.com> Date: Mon, 4 May 1998 08:54:55 -0400 (EDT)     Yesterday afternoon at 4pm was the final concert in this year's series on the IV/154 Schantz organ at the Cathedral Basilica of the Sacred Heart in Newark, NJ. Alas, it was quite probably the last concert for some time, since Director of Music David Fedor resigned effective Easter day, and my teacher, F. Allen Artz III, followed closely behind.   At any rate, the concert was well attended, and featured organist Gordon Turk of Ocean Grove Auditorium fame.   The program was as follows: Eugene Gigout: Toccata Alexandre Guilmant: Adagio (from 3rd Sonata for Organ) Alexandre Guilmant: Recitative & Scherzo (from 5th Sonata for Organ) Max Reger: Benedictus (Op. 59, No. 9) Max Reger: Scherzo (Op. 65, No. 10) J.S. Bach: Ave Maria (arr. Charles Gounod) J.S. Bach: Passacaglia in c minor, BWV 582   Intermission   Lynnwood Farnam: Toccata on the hymn O Filii et Filiae Horatio Parker: Arietta (Op. 68, No. 4) Horatio Parker: Allegretto (from Sonata, Op. 65) Improvisation on submitted themes   (Encore: a piece based on the scriptural line "Te Es Petra")   (Note to Mr. Lamirande: see, no Wagner after all :) .)   As with the other Curtis graduates I've seen, Mr. Turk played completely from memory with only a few index cards, presumably for registrational piston notes, although he even hand registered a couple of changes (with no loss to the flow of the music).   Overall, the concert was wonderful. The organ is a very good all-around instrument (as it should be with that number of stops). Mr. Turk used the romantic, symphonic qualities of the organ to their utmost, and the performance was impressive. I was a little less impressed with the Bach passacaglia, but only with respect to registration. I feel that a greater dynamic range of registrations could have been used as the piece built towards the climax, but Mr. Turk started around 1/3 organ and built to about 2/3 organ (whereas, by contrast, the Biggs recording on the Flentrop, which is I admit one of my favorites, starts at about 1/8 organ and builds pretty much to full organ).   Nevertheless, Mr. Turk's playing was superb, and his improvisation, which was on an Easter hymn which escapes my recollection at the moment (I remember that it starts and ends with three hallelujahs, and I even remember that we sang it in choir...it's just way too early on Monday :( ), was absolutely stunning.   I thought it amusing that he played the Farnam with all the talk on the list(s) recently about him.   So, a good time was had by all.   -Adam   Rutherford, NJ USA Free speech online! _/ In Massachusettes http://zen.advance.net/~alevin/________/ it is illegal <*> __________________________/ put tomatoes in -O / clam chowder.

I= n general the comments and reactions are really of little interest in the field of organ arts, but reflect very personal opinions. I'm not an organist but an experimenting pipe organ builder and in my function of secretary of a non profit organ association, I try to do the right things in favor of organists and organs, with the stress however on "the organists". It appears to be very difficult to socialize the hole team, because "an artist" is an individualist and often not ready to accept oth= er ideas than its. I'm doing this job for 15 years and learned to live with it. They play so beautyful! :-)))) Vincent Lef=E8vre

(back) Subject: First Recital From: mewzishn@spec.net Date: Mon, 04 May 1998 10:33:28 -0400   My first recital was at my first church job, a little Methodist church in southern California (Westmont UMC) on a Baldwin of ancient vintage (and this was back in, like, about, 1975). I can't remember what I played yesterday at church (well, actually, I can, it was Improvisation Sunday), so trying to remember back into the mid-paleolithic era is futile. (Like I want to remember back then, when none of us knew how to dress properly, and now everyone's dressing like that again! Yucko!!) I do remember that the church was just about full, I think it seated about 200 people if you used the optional liturgical shoehorn.   Ken Sybesma        
(back) Subject: recital From: Gary Black <gblack@bhsroe.k12.il.us> Date: Mon, 04 May 1998 22:00:00 -0500   Hi Jonathan,   I enjoyed your rectial very much. I have played the Mendelsohn and it isn't easy especially the fugue. I liked your choice of music too. It is always good to play different styles and different time periods.   I am installing a 12 rank pipe organ in my house. When it is running or if you would like to gain information on how everthing works, I 'll have you come up and see what it going on. I live in Bradford which is North of Peroia on route 40. I am the organist at the Methodist Church here and teach at the local high school.   Time to go, I have a class coming in soon.   Sincerely, Gary Black 206 Silver St. Bradford, Il. 61421 309-897-8476

(back) Subject: Re: First Recital From: sohmer@juno.com (stephen ohmer) Date: Mon, 4 May 1998 10:47:37 -0400   First recital? If I can get the dead brain cells resurrected, let me see....forget the exact date - Marietta, Ohio at St. Mary's church - with a 17rank pipe organ (probably Tellers Kent - but the church has never been able to find the records).   As I recall, I had only been studying organ for two years (skipped piano - boring, so rushed on to the organ where I fell in love with the instrument and drove my parents crazy for the next 6 years!!!!! Such is the way to drive parents crazy---I didn't need drugs or booze or terbacky; just plenty of Bach and Gregorian Chant stuff to practice on the Wurtilizer at home!!!!!)   Sonata II - Mendelssohn (except the final movement) Prelude and Fugue in C - Bach (the one which starts with the pedal solo; vol. 4 of Peeters edition, methinks)   Orgelbuchlein preludes: Alle Menschen mussen sterben Vater Unser in Himmelreich Christ lag in Todesbanden Christus der uns selig macht (sp?) In dir is Freude   Paraphrase on the Salve Regina - Jean Langlais Suite Gothique (entire) - Leon Boellmann   Nearly 400 present (seemed empty to me, since the church at that time seated nearly 1,000). But I didn't care since all I wanted to do was play. I didn't even go downstairs to see the people afterward, some of them came up to me. But the applause in that acoustic sounded VERY grand ;-) .     _____________________________________________________________________ You don't need to buy Internet access to use free Internet e-mail.

Casavant did >some >beeeeeeeeeutiful romantic work! > >bruce o h s __________ a g o >cornely o o __________ o o > ........... cremona84000@webtv.net ........... >   Such a small, small world. I was director of music for a time at St. Mary's Catholic Church in Orange, TX. The priest asked me to come for a year and establish their program of liturgy/worship and music for them. All they had in the balcony was an ancient Moller artiste - 4 ranks; but with the "rounded" ceiling and no carpet, the place was like a cathedral (of sorts, lets be realistic, Stephen....) Anyway, I had lots of opportunitites to play the Casavant at First Pres. in that town. It was so incredibly scrumpdiliischious that they had to give me a key - since I was always asking the staff to stay late to let me keep on practicing! It was a marvelous instrument to give hymn festivals (did one) and recitals (did two), and the people of the town, believe it or not, would turn out for such things! (Of course, this was in 1979-80, before the all things beautiful decay syndrome had come into effect).   There is also a - well there's not a word to describe it - Casavant, 3/27 in St. Francis Xavier (the locals pronounce the x - x avyour) in Parkersburg, WV, that has increbile acoustics, no appreciation on the part of the clergy, but the organ is so nice. Unfortunately the console sits way back and to the side of the case, so the organist never has an idea of what the sound is like - and it's powerful enough to make the congregation turn around if you use too much!   Speaking of Parkersburg - St. Mary's Church there, where I was organist/choirmaster had a marvelous two manual Felgemaker, with push button couplers (heck to use when it was cold, but great in nice weather). the local organbuilder had removed the 4' octave from the great and replaced it with an 8' unda maris; however, the church had a fire several years back. The organ was saved, thankfully, and I believe the original stoplist has been restored! The choir when I was there was 16 - the most that could fit in the loft! They were sooooooooo fun and soooooooo good! Every rehearsal was, how can we out beautify what we did last week - but the organ was so sweet (except the 8' diapasoooon).     Funny thing: the low c of the 8' diapason was front and center of the facade, and during the sermon one Sunday (choir present), it started to cipher. I cancelled all the stops and stood on the pedal board to lift the pipe out of the hole (was going to stuff a miserablette over the wind supply) - but lifted the pipe one inch too high, and it came loose from it's holder in the top rack! The pipe being very heavy and ackward, I couldn't control it's path, and it headed over my head toward the balcony rail!!!!! Of course, three of the choir men saw the event taking place (remember, this is during the sermon), and help to catch the pipe just one inch short of hitting the balcony rail. The priest never missed a word! And all he said after mass, when no one was around, was "I hope you find next week's sermon less boring."     steveohmer > >"Pipe Up and Be Heard!" >PipeChat: A discussion List for pipe/digital organs & related topics >HOMEPAGE : http://www.pipechat.org >List: mailto:pipechat@pipechat.org >Administration: mailto:admin@pipechat.org >Subscribe/Unsubscribe: mailto:requests@pipechat.org > >   _____________________________________________________________________ You don't need to buy Internet access to use free Internet e-mail.

I've already managed to obtain a copy of the LP.   I'm on the Banda mailing list and I haven't seen anything of this as yet.
