(back) Subject: 11/26/99 Thomas Murray at Saint Ignatius Loyola, NYC From: WAYNE_BURCHAM@rsausa.com Date: Wed, 27 Oct 1999 13:43:20 -0400       Hello List,   11/26/99, Tues., 8 p.m., Thomas Murray in concert at Saint Ignatius = Loyola, 84th Street & Park Avenue, NYC.   The Program:   Fugue in G minor (K. 401) with Introduction W. A. Mozart Adagio in E Frank Bridge Sonata No. 13, Op. 161 J. G. Rheinberger Intermission Overture to Ruy Blas F. Mendelssohn-Bartholdy Some Fun with "Wentworth" Merrill Kenneth Wolf Suite, Op. 5 (1933) Maurice Durufle   Encore Mouvement Jean Berveiller   This was a magnificent performance on a magnificent instrument. While I have some of Thomas Murray's CD's, this was my first time hearing him live as well as my first time hearing the 1993 Mander Organ. Though the performer was hidden in the west gallery behind the Positif, a large-screen projection system set-up at the front of the Nave made it possible to see him in action. Many organists can get all of the notes right at the right time, but this was music making among the highest order I have ever experienced (think M-C Alain, Simon Preston, Todd Wilson, the best of the best). I was fortunate to meet Malcolm Wechsler of Mander Organs USA after the concert who graciously gave me a mini-tour of the instrument high up in the west gallery as well as a brochure describing the 4M, 68 stop, 91 rank organ. Now I'm looking forward to hearing M-C Alain Friday night. "New York, New York, it's a hell of a town. The Bronx is up and the Battery's down. The people ride through a hole in the ground."

All that most churches are really are social clubs with a politically vicious core, and a large group of unempowered followers. No one cares about the music, unless it's the "in" thing to = do. Right now, the "in" thing is the CCM morass, which I won't compromise on. I tried to do the right things musically, and got either frowned upon, or was stuck with doing everything myself!

Murray) plays transcriptions also VERY WELL. His "Ride Of the Valkyries" at OHS in Montreal was absolutely stunning!!! His Overture to _Midsummer Night's Dream_ (Mendelssohn) several years ago at the re-opening of the big Austin in St. Clement's, Phila., was equally stunning. I'd not try to rank these three, but it's tempting to think that Cowan takes a back seat to no one in this sort of performance.   Cordially,   Karl E. Moyer Lancaster PA

Dead-center of the state and only 17 miles from my shop!   The address is:   Lincoln Christian College 100 Campus View Drive Lincoln, IL 62656   LCC is located on IL Route 10 on the east edge of Lincoln. If you are heading east towards Clinton and get to the giant "Golfball" on a tower at the National Weather Service which houses their Radar, then you've gone too far. The campus entrance is immediately across the highway to the south from the Logan County Airport runway (which, fortunately, is used very little!)   Further information about the instrument can be found by checking into our web-site, which is soon to be moving to our own Server and domain-name. But for now, look at: http://theatreorgans.com/arp/   And look under "notable Installations" for Lincoln Christian College.   Sorry for leaving folks hanging all afternoon like this.
