Apologies will be included in the program/warning statement. Like I said I am not an organist. I can play the D minor because I have practiced it on and off for thirty years. I have been building my little finger muscles for months so I can play more evenly. <br>BTW there is a possiblity of it being shown in Kansas City next year in March. I will let the list know if that pans out. <br>Louis Katz <p>Cremona502@cs.com wrote: <blockquote TYPE=3DCITE><font face=3D"arial,helvetica"><font size=3D-1>In = a message dated 4/10/01 9:18:54 PM Pacific Daylight Time,</font></font> <br><font face=3D"arial,helvetica"><font = size=3D-1>Louis.Katz@mail.tamucc.edu writes:</font></font> <br>&nbsp; <br>&nbsp; <blockquote TYPE=3DCITE style=3D"BORDER-LEFT: #0000ff 2px solid; = MARGIN-LEFT: 5px; MARGIN-RIGHT: 0px; PADDING-LEFT: 5px"><font = face=3D"arial,helvetica"><font size=3D-1>Unfortunately, the piece that has great patterns that seem like they will</font></font> <br><font face=3D"arial,helvetica"><font size=3D-1>be discernable to the = audience is in D minor.

(back) Subject: organist-bashing From: <quilisma@socal.rr.com> Date: Wed, 11 Apr 2001 09:07:45 -0700   Older listmembers will remember when bashing The Fox was the order of the day.   When the Strader family gave a new concert organ to Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music, they wanted Fox to dedicate it, since he was a family friend.   At the time, there were three organ faculty members at CCM: Wayne Fisher, Roberta Gary, and David Mulbury. The faculty members were to share in the week of festivities ... Fox would play his recital three times (the hall only seated about a hundred), and each faculty member would play a recital on the alternate nights.   Fisher's students were AWE-STRUCK ... they'd never SEEN The Fox play the Middleschulte (grin).   Roberta's studio went out to dinner before the first Fox recital, had a couple of drinks (grin), and thoroughly enjoyed the whole affair, without, however, taking his interpretation of the Bach Passacaglia and Fugue TOO seriously (opening pedal theme on the Krumhorn, maybe with tremulant ... I don't remember).   Mulbury's students sat stone-faced through the whole thing, looking like they'd stepped in doggie doo. Evidently he thrown what for him was a temper tantrum in organ class, denouncing the whole business and saying something to the effect that his professional reputation was permanently sullied by appearing on the same bill as The Fox.   WE all went to the party afterwards at the Strader's house, chit-chatted with Fox, had a few MORE drinks, played the big Wurlitzer pipe organ (at one point I VAGUELY remember playing the Bach F Major Toccata with ALL the percussions BLAZING and Fox and Roberta LOSING it because they were laughing so hard ... Robert Love was operating the prat-fall whistle and various other bells and whistles I couldn't reach), and in general had a FINE time.   Fox went home, things settled back to more-or-less normal, we had a new recital organ, and nobody was much the worse for wear, except for Dr. Mulbury, who never quite recovered. At last report, he'd given up teaching organ and was teaching music history.   My comment at the time: "you don't have to PLAY like The Fox to ENJOY him." And that pretty much summed it up. I would have given just about ANYTHING to have his "chops."   Cheers,   Bud
