(back) Subject: RE: Pierre Cochereau. From: "Charles Brown" <clmoney@cybernex.net> Date: Fri, 26 Feb 1999 06:31:34 -0500   In response to the other Brown (great name):   You are correct, improvising does require listening and a firm footing in music theroy. But, equally as important, remember technique. No matter how great your ideas, they cannot be realized without the hands and feet having total independance.   Also, the styles of various periods and composers. When I studied improvisation I had a teacher say to play something, say, in the style of Buxthehude...I had to first think, what makes Buxthehude..Buxthehude.   Charles E. Brown http://www.classicalcorner.com

Kuhn is a Swiss builder. I think he was referring to the style of the organ being German Baroque. >>   Metzler, another famous Swiss organ builder, tends more to the German baroque style. Metzler organs today are rather puristic: no electricity for the organ, with just two exceptions: the wind motor and the lamp for the organist. He has built a year or two ago such an three manual "Bach"-Organ for the Cathedral of Antwerpen. Here in Krefeld we get a similar Metzler later this year (III/52), but in this case the swell will be a little more French type.   Kuhn organs tend more to the French colours, and their organs have all the registration aids you want. Here in Germany are new Kuhn-Organs in Minden Cathedral an in the Basilica St. Kunibert in Cologne.   Carl  
(back) Subject: Cochereau's improvos From: KriderSM@aol.com Date: Fri, 26 Feb 1999 08:14:28 EST   Ahhhhhh, Yessssssss!!   Once classical music afficionados get past the slam, banging of percussion in Lennon & McCartney's music, one will find both beautiful music and thoughtful lyrics.   When my company finishes servicing a classical instrument, I check out our tuning by playing McCartney's "All My Lovin'" and Manchester's "Come In From The Rain". Pardon my sacrilege, but both the tunes and the lyrics are inspirational in nature.   IMHO, they are as reverent (if not more so) as the slam, bang, & happy clappy musical choices of other churches mentioned recently on this line.   Of curiosity, how would Hector Olivera's efforts compare with Cochereau's? I have heard Hector in casual and formal settings, and his improvisations are awesome. If Cochereau is comparable, then I should like to hear his work.   Stan Krider   Charles E. Brown recently wrote:   >(Cochereau) had a policy of letting someone hand him a theme in an envelope. At >this performance the theme was a Beatle's tune, the name of which escapes me >now. 45-minutes later he concluded the 4th movement of the improvisation with a >majestic 5-voice fugue.   >Need i say more????

Get it?   IMHO, in this humorous setting that you so santimoniously condemn, I have learned more positive things about these various religions (including yours) than I could have ever learned by listening to sanctimonious lectures about them. By hearing something humorous about a religion of which I am either ignorant or prejudiced against, I learn something about that religion in a manner (humor) that I can accept. If I hear a Catholic joke, for example, it opens to me a little knowledge that allows me to ask a Catholic friend about the object of that joke. I am then able to start a dialogue of a serious nature through which I will be receptive to the facts I hear from my Catholic friend.   FWIW, The horse can be motivated to move by using both a whip and an apple. The difference is that the horse moves toward the apple and moves away from the whip. Joking is the apple, while sanctimonious condemnations are the whip. I prefer the positive actions that result from such humor.   BTW, Whether the house of worship is Jewish, Roman Catholic, Greek Orthodox or Baptist, I enter each with the reverence due the building and congregation even though the buildings are otherwise empty. I do so because The Almighty God, Jehovah, Allah, Great White Spirit, or Whomever, lives there.   Through humor I have learned a devout degree of respect that sanctimonious condemnations never could.   I may even have entered your house of worship with the same degree of respect you would give, to service its majestic pipe organ because of humor.   Perhaps someday you will give me the same respect about humor that you want me to give you about your sanctimoniousness.   Stan Krider

Emmanuel Congretional Church. They just had the organ "rebuilt" by the somewhat incompetent organ builder of the area. (he took out the mechanical action and installed it with a cheap electro-mechanical relay and D-E pallets on the Swell chest. The Swell pedal is bearly movable. about 2" from full open to closed. You also have to stand on it to move it.   But, anyways, it's a good church and it likes useing the organ. I'm moving out of Bethany at the last Sundahy of April. If the other organist isn't back then, oh well!   I'm encouraging the church to keep the organ up after I'm gone. For they are wonderful insturments and they will outlast any human being in the church.   Well, First I've got to get through the rest of March and April of both Bethany and the Theatre production "OOOOOOOOOOOklahoma" which I am assistant/aprentice conductor.   Later, Jason Comet Junior in High School bombarde8@juno.com Begining Driver - Get off the streets! |\ Organist/Choir Director | | 2/13 C.

(back) Subject: Bach editions From: Bud/burgie <budchris@earthlink.net> Date: Fri, 26 Feb 1999 14:33:44 -0800   While I agree that the Dupre edition is useful for working out knotty problems of fingering and pedalling, I always copied the markings into my W-S edition ... it's impossible without doing a note-by-note comparison of the Dupre with an urtext to determine where he changed note-values ... his theory of tied notes is well-known, so those are easier to spot, but not the actual changes of values, of which there are many, as I recall.   As to the Peters, I'm partially sighted now, so the Peters/Kalmus edition just looks like a big black blur ... come to think of it, it did in college! I'm not sure what was meant by "alignment" ... one presumes that the same notes are above and below each other in all editions ... perhaps what was meant was the dividing of the voices between the staves?   There are some variant readings in Peters that Schweitzer didn't provide, but it's easy enough to copy them and paste them in if one wants to use them. I did notice in the REPRINT of the W-S, the additional measure found in Peters HAS been added to the e minor ("cathedral") prelude (not in the original W-S) ... I was rather startled the first time I played through it. I don't see any additional editors' names anywhere in the volume.   I probably should change to the NBA, but I'm too old and set in my ways, and I just replaced four volumes of the W-S. And the early volumes of the NBA (at least) were FULL of mistakes.   Cheers,   Bud

Ascap and Bmi both have websites ( http://www.ascap.com/ http://www.bmi.com/ ) so check those first.

(back) Subject: Stops!!!! From: Matt Baker <poinsettia@netxn.com> Date: Fri, 26 Feb 1999 16:19:24 -0800   (Newbie alert!!!)   I'm looking at building a couple of electronic organs, and I need stop info. I'm already familiar with just about every stop name there is. (A few years ago I researched a number of books with stop dictionaries and compiled a big list of over 800 stops along with descriptions). The problen: I don't know exactly what most of them *sound* like, although I do have descriptions of a lot of them, they don't really help that much. Obviously this is going to be a problem if I'm going to be building an organ. I suppose I could *invent* a sound for each stop...uh...no. :) What I need is recorded samples of as many diferent pipes/stops (playing individual notes) I can find, so I can analyze the waveforms/harmonic makeup of each and build the circuit that produces a similar waveform accordingly. The first organ will be a smallish analog w/3 manuals/60-80 stops or so. I'm not going for mega-quality, just something with decent sound/size I can play at home. (The electronics aren't a problem: I've fiddled with audio electronics since grade school.) I'm also looking at building a big 4-manual 400+ stop digital one later on! (Want to see a preliminary stoplist? :)   So my real question is..... Do any of you know of anything like a database of sampled pipes (on the Internet or elsewhere), recordings demonstrating stops, any sort of collection of sampled stops/pipes, etc? We do have two 100+ rank organs in town, one at my church, the other at a church I visit fairly often. Wha I'll try and do is just take a good tape recorder and mike, hit record, and go to work one stop at a time, 10-15 notes each stop. Problem is, I don't have a good recorder (well, I guess I could just use my tape deck), or that much time really. Have any of you done something like this?   So why am I doing this? Cuz I want to. :) I've been fascinated by and sort-of around organs since I was 3 so I think it's time I learned to play.   If you can help, thanks...   -- < Transmit src: poinsettia@netxn.com ID1 LCARS Channel 1 Lineout > YuSeEkMeAtNo31101993 http://www.netxn.com/~poinsettia/index.html Pizza-Delivery Illustrated: http://members.xoom.com/hlrmatt/index.html
