The organ is an interesting recreation of what many would love to have in a theatre organ. I find the George Wright quotation very interesting. I heard George play the San Francisco Fox 4/36 several times and also the Pasadena Railto 3/10. He brought the most out of both instruments and you never felt there was anything lacking in the smaller instrument. I suspect George would have had fun with the San Filippo organ. In any event it sounded like George Wright on whatever he played. I imagine that the same was true when George was cycling back and forth between the Fox and the 2/6 in the Oakland nite club.   Jon

Truth be known, I believe that GW made the "less is more" comment in relation to TO registration rather than the SIZE of the instrument. I will also bet that GW was always able to find HIS sounds---what HE wanted to hear for the majority of his repertoire on a finely done 3/18 Wurlitzer. To me, THIS has a very important message and meaning to those who are followers of this mans artistry.   > I suspect George would have had fun > with the San Filippo organ.   No doubt this is true.     Clare  
(back) Subject: Mr. GW From: "VEAGUE" <dutchorgan@svs.net> Date: Sun, 25 Oct 1998 16:12:07 -0500   I agree with comments about Mr. Wright's abilities at the console. His early ' 50 ' s recordings at the Vaughn Wurli, tho terribly dry acoustically, were a good example of his keyboard techniques. Never have I heard cleaner executions of phrasing, fingering, clean -as -a-whistle arpeggios. His tunes like Roller Coaster, Polly, Nola, etc. leave one biting off their fingers. His trick recording,ie piggy-back recording, I've only heard on Les Paul/ Mary Ford recordings. Some times Mr. Wright would get carried away with the Post Horn a little too much--but then, I've heard organists today get carried away moreso. A wonderful tribute to GW is on the Theatre Organ home page. He, like the rest of us at times, could have a rather nasty temper and disposition. Well, we're only human...none of us have earned our wings yet. Sorry, no red-neck jokes to pass along...have better things to do. Rick dutchorgan@svs.net

I found that most of the organs, when the problems were corrected actually were quite good but a substantial amount of reworking was usually needed.   My biggest complaint, and this includes the Organ at the Basillica in DC is that, despite have really lovely stops, the scale is almost always too small. If one listens to the organ at the origin of the sound it is quite good, but out in the room the effect is quite something else.   It unfortunate that a builder with obvious potential went downhill due to comercial choices over artisitic ones.   b craig     ______________________________________________________ Get Your Private, Free Email at http://www.hotmail.com

The recordings and performances are okay (what I've heard of them) but the best part is the CD liner. Not only is information regarding the history of the organ, but the specification of the organ, the registrations the organist used (including changes and measure numbers), the organist's bio and information on Mendelssohn's sonatas are all included! How incredible. It's like it was made for organists. The organist is Wouter Van Den Broek, the organ is the Ba:tz in the Oude Kerk in Delft. The Divisions are as follows: Hoofdwerk Rugwerk Bovenwerk Pedaal The following is also included: Bovenwerk is voorzien een Zwelkast. I have ideas about what all of this means, but if anybody can expand on these terms, feel free to do so. I would like to know what the 8' Baarpijp is. What type of pipe?   know some of you are specification trolls, so here it is:   HOOFDWERK Prestant 16' Prestant 8' Bourdon 8' Octaaf 4' Fluit 4' Quint 3' Octaaf 2' Mixtuur V Cornet V Trompet 16' Trompet 8' Dulciaan 8'   RUGWERK Prestant 16' Prestant 8' Roerfluit 8' Viola 8' Octaaf 4' Roerfluit 4' Quint 3' Woudluit 2' Mixtuur IV Cornet III Trompet 8' Tremulant   BOVENWERK Prestant 8' Baarpijp 8' Gamba 8' Vox Celeste 8' Salicet 4' Gemshoorn 2' Nasard 1,5' Fagot 16' Schalmei 8' Tremulant   PEDAAL Prestant 16' Subbas 16' Octaafbas 8' Viola 8' Holfluit 8' Bazuin 16' Trombone 8' Cornet 4'   COUPLERS Hoofdwerk-Rugwerk Hoofdwerk-Bovenwerk Hoofdwerk-Pedaal   Bovenwerk is voorzien van een Zwelkast   Brent Johnson The Organ Web Ring http://home.swbell.net/bmjohns/organ.htm

Those of you who attended the OHS-Convention in New Haven or in Philadelphia (I think that was in 1994 and 1996) may very well know me already, 'cause I was there too. Then you probably also know about my interest in symphonic organs and transcriptions.   For a long time I thought I was the only idiot on this side of the Atlantic who was mad about the kind of organ organatics here call 'decadent' and 'from the Era of Decay' and of which in Europe you hardly find any. But in New Haven I met Tom Murray who knew better: he gave me the address of a guy in Holland he knew who was just as crazy about strings, shades and celestes as I was. This guy became my best friend (thanks again, Tom) and in 1996 we went to Philadelphia together, where that Wednesday night at Hecht's (Wanamaker's) became the night of my life. I actually had heard the organ live once before, on 'Friends Day' in 1994, but then the shop was just too noisy for me to be able to enjoy it. But that night two years later completely made up for that tremendous disappointment. (Thanks again, Peter, now I can die in peace!)   Well, now you know me. And now I have a question for you. When I was about 15 years old I bought my very first organ record for something like half a dollar at a garage sale. I didn't have faintest idea what kind of organ it was, but I fell for the humongous golden pipes on the cover. Now I know that that one record - I must have played it over a thousand times - has influenced my musical taste a great deal.   The record was by Dr. Frank Asper at the Mormon Tabernacle, Salt Lake City. The cover as I recall it, was in Bordeaux red (something between purple and red). It must have been a mono recording form the late 50s, I think. Dr. Asper plays the Andante Cantabile from Widor's Symphony IV, Priere a Notre-Dame from Boellmann's Suite Gothique and Air from Handel's Water Music. Those are the three pieces I think I remember. 'I think', because when I went to the Conservatory of Music in Utrecht in 1979, my teacher convinced me that the romantic way of playing the organ was 'bad', that is: contagious and life threatening if you were to be a professional musician. For that reason, and because I was afraid the old record would ruin my newly bought player, after three years of faithful service, I broke it in two pieces and dumped it in the trash can.   Well, you must have guessed it by now, my question is: who can help me find that record that means so much to me? Of course I realize I probably idealized my memories a great deal, when I rediscovered the 'decadence' some thirteen years ago, but still I would love to hear that recording again, even if it would 'only' be a copy on cassette tape.   Hope to hear from you soon,   Nice meeting you all,     Aida van de Brake.     ################################################################## ## An organ without strings is like a violin without a bow, ## ## An orchestra without conductor, a symphony without themes. ## ##################################################################       --------------D60BE26A3F3202D277C5C557 Content-Type: text/html; charset=us-ascii Content-Transfer-Encoding: 7bit   <!doctype html public "-//w3c//dtd html 4.0 transitional//en"> <html> Hi Everyone, <br>&nbsp; <p>I'm new around here, so let me introduce myself first: my name is Aida (pronounce: <br>'Idah', as in 'Idaho') and I'm a 37 year old Dutch lady, a 'Dutchess' so to say :-). <br>Those of you who attended the OHS-Convention in New Haven or in Philadelphia (I <br>think that was in 1994 and 1996) may very well know me already, 'cause I was there <br>too.

'Baar' means bare or naked, but acording to Carl Lochner's Orgel-Register it means bright sounding here.     You're welcome,     Aida van de Brake.

Williamson Williamson-Warne & Associates Hollywood Ca.     I need to sell a 4 month old Rodgers W-5000. It's light oak and has all the new software upgrades. The organ is in "brand new" condition and I need to sell it. I'm looking to sell this thing quickly and for a sweet deal. Thanks, Devin.
