Franz Schmidt was also warmly received last Friday at = Lincoln Center, New York City (Variations on a Theme of Beethoven for piano and orchestra.)   Inasmuch as Mr. Welser-Mo"st is to be the new conductor of the = distinguished Cleveland Symphony Orchestra, starting this fall, I think we're going to = be hearing a lot more Franz Schmidt in this country, from now on! As the = late Nelson Rockefeller might have said: "Sorry, fella!" :)   I have, earlier this evening, posted a lengthy explanation of this entire subject. I deal there with facts, not with innuendo, unsupportable accusations, and discredited canards. But, of course, some people don't = give up easily, even when confronted with facts. (Hitler was one. Stalin was smarter.)   My CD is still available only in private copies. It's possible that it = may become commercially available at some future time, but I can't give out = any further information on that now. However, the Franz Schmidt Chaconne can = be heard on the Internet at http://www.mp3.com/arthurlamirande   If anyone is interested in a private copy, prior to publication, they can contact me privately.   The CD also includes several other works which will be virtually unknown = to most American organists. Two compositions by Quebec composer Bernard = Piche'; one by Canadian (Alberta) composer Vernon Murgatroyd; one by French = composer Daniel-Lesur; and an original Improvisation of my own. (The latter can = also be heard at the Internet website.)   The recording was made on Nov. 20, 2000 at the Holy Rosary Cathedral in Vancouver, British Columbia. It was the same program I had given the previous day at the cathedral: an organ recital and music for the Mass = which followed the recital. The Daniel-Lesur work (Scene de la Passion) was chosen because it was the composer's 92nd birthday on Nov. 19th.   The organ was originally built in 1900 by the Ontario firm of Karn-Warren, =   long defunct. By the 1990s, it had become virtually unplayable. Finally, = a new rector of the cathedral, Father James P. Comey, took it upon himself = to initiate a complete restoration in 1997. The firm of Casavant Freres, St. =   Hyacinth, Quebec was chosen. That was a very wise decision. The Casavant company did an incredibly = superb job of restoration. They also added some new ranks of their own, and revoiced most of the old ones, also doing a complete mechanical rebuild. = The job took 3 years; and the newly restored organ was heard for the first = time last year, with several very famous organists being invited to perform, including Fred Swann and Dianne Bish. The concerts resume this year with Simon Preston and Gillian Weir.   When you hear this organ, you will find it hard to believe that it = contains only 51 ranks. It sounds like a much larger organ. Extremely brilliant, = but also with many beautiful foundation stops. The acoustics of the cathedral =   are excellent. This organ proved ideal for performing the music of = Schmidt, as well as the other composers on the program. Ideal for romantic music, = in other words; but it would also be equally good for Bach and the other classics. I'm happy to say that Casavant installed a computer memory = system, which was extremely helpful in the performance. (It was a lot easier to = play the Franz Schmidt Chaconne here than it had been the previous week, at the =   Ruffatti at St. Mary's Cathedral in San Francisco, which is sans computer memory system.)   I'll be gone for a couple of days.

The first and third are moderately =   difficult; the second and fourth more difficult. The fourth is a setting = of the familiar "Nun danket alle Gott". Publisher: Leuckart.   After that: the Four "Little" Preludes and Fugues (1928). None of these = are easy. They will require sustained work and effort to master. The Fugue = of the Third --- which is actually a Prelude, Trio, and Fugue --- is, in = fact, one of the hardest things ever written for the organ. (Schmidt wrote most = of his organ pieces for the Austrian organ virtuoso Franz Schutz, who must = have had a formidable technique.) Publisher is Doblinger.   All of the above do have the advantage that they can be played on an organ = of modest size. The larger works will, necessarily, demand a larger organ. Still, I managed to do the massive Chaconne on an organ of 51 ranks (Vancouver Cathedral --- but that organ is not your ordinary = run-of-the-mill 51 ranks!).   One work that is not easy, but has a great deal of charm, is the Prelude = and Fugue in A, subtitled "Weihachtspastorale" (Christmas Pastorale). It = would be a most appropriate piece for a Christmas program. Another one, = entitled "Der Heiland ist erstanden" (The Saviour is Risen) would make a very = suitable Easter piece. Alas for the technically challenged: the final section --- rapid Vivace passagework in the hands against a double canon in the feet = --- is another one of the hardest things in the repertory.
