(back) Subject: Concert Review From: Robert Horton <gemshorn@ukans.edu> Date: Sat, 17 Apr 1999 23:44:27 -0500   16 April 1999 Olivier Latry, organ Bales Organ Recital Hall University of Kansas   Tonight marked the end of our three day conference at the University of Kansas on the Organ and Church Music. M. Latry, titular organist of Notre Dame de Paris, brought the conference to a memorable close tonight with an all-improvised program. Latry began the concert with a set of versets on Ave Maris Stella in alternatim with sung chant. For this improvisation, Latry chose to demonstrate the French Classical Style, playing a Pleins Jeulx, Tierce en Taille, Basse de Trompette, and finishing with a splendid Dialogue sur les Grands Jeulx. Crossing the Alsace, Latry closed the first half in North German Baroque style. His variations on Vater Unser im Himmelreich displayed his mastery of counterpoint. A "pick-up" schola comprised of organ students from Dordt College and conference attendees sang the chorale in alternation antiphonally from the back of the hall under the direction of Michael Bauer, Assistant Professor of Organ and Church Music at KU. After the intermission, we were treated to an entire symphony (this time in Latry's own contemporary style) in seven movements based on Salve Regina. M. Latry demonstrated the full resources of the organ, transporting the listener from one magical scene to another. Latry's use of the instrument, effortless technique at the console, and instinct for registration were nothing short of mind-boggling. A standing ovation was repaid with Tournemire's "Te Deum" (a special request by Polly Bales) and Thierry Eschaich's dazzling "Cinq versets sur le Victimae Pachali". Words simply fail to describe the awesome combination of musician and instrument heard at KU tonight. This was one concert that we will never forget.   Robert Horton - DMA Student, University of Kansas 1603 West 15th St. #207A, Lawrence, KS 66044 http://falcon.cc.ukans.edu/~gemshorn/

Could some kind soul please post where this might be done?   Try Roger Sherman's program "The Organ Loft" Sundays at 6 a.m. and 10 p.m. Pacific Time on KING FM in Seattle. www.KING.org   Actually the evening broadcast gets ratings of between number one and number two in the Seattle metropolitan area radio market.....and then some church growth experts proclaim that no one listens to organ music!!!   If you tune in at 9:30 pacific time you'll hear the live Compline broadcast from St. Mark's Episcopal Cathedral in Seattle.   Jerry in Seattle
