(back) Subject: x-post / Seattle Silents- Monday Nights in July at the Paramount From: <MUSCUR@aol.com> Date: Sat, 16 Jun 2001 12:35:01 EDT   It's almost time once again for "Silent Movie Mondays" at the Paramount featuring the preserved 4 manual Publix 1 model Wurlitzer, 35mm archival prints shown at the historically correct projection speeds, and = accompanied utilizing traditional silent film scoring techniques and authentic period materials.   Paramount Theatre at 911 Pine Street on Monday nights in July starting = July 9 at 7:00 p.m. (pre-show discussion) or 7:30 p.m. (start of film)   First up is our four film series is Lillian Gish in her Hollywood debut = role as the frail Mimi in the 1926 LA BOHEME (directed by King Vidor).   FILM NOTES: Miss Gish was brought west to Hollywood by Louis B. Mayer in = an MGM contract coup attracting the reigning box office star of silent films away from the legendary D. W. Griffith company on the East coast. When = she arrived at the studio there was a festive welcoming parade through the = studio lot and immediately after in her first production meeting, Miss Gish was given her own choice of projects. Gish was prepared- she owned and = already had under development a treatment of LA BOHEME, the famous tale of a frail =   waif of the Parisian garrets by Henri Murger. To help convert it from a popular opera success to the expansive possibilities of the silent screen = she chose MGM's handsome matinee-idol John Gilbert as her co-star plus the studio's talented young "King" Vidor as her director.   In the film's 1978 revival presented by CATOE at the Chicago Civic Opera house, Lillian Gish announced from the stage: "Dennis James' playing = brought tears to my eyes . . . his score was just what we intended it to be when = we made the film," celebrating the premier of James' new solo organ score for =   the 1926 MGM silent classic. Throughout the filming, Miss Gish intended = for themes from the Puccini opera score to accompany her film version of the Henri Murger "Scenes from the Bohemian Life" even going so far as to synchronize her non-singing performance as Mimi to recordings of the opera =   music played while the cameras rolled. The Puccini estate, however, = refused permission to use the opera's music with the film as the premier screening =   approached, so an imitative pastiche of new film music by Dr. William Axt = was assembled.   Dennis James restored the now public-domain Puccini music to the film in a =   dramatic fully-staged and costumed presentation of "La Boheme" in the = grand Civic Opera House in downtown Chicago. An actual Boheme set from the = opera company's warehouses was assembled around the console of the newly = restored opera house pipe organ, and James appeared in costumed character as the romantic lead Rodolfo hosting an evening-long presentation that included a =   rare screening of the full length MGM archive print plus a live onstage interview with Miss Gish. The marvelous 35mm MGM "vault print" will be = seen once again at the Paramount Theatre in Seattle on July 9.   Dennis James House Organist - Paramount Theatre, Seattle

(back) Subject: Ken Cowan playing a Nichols and Simpson organ From: <Bobmac36@aol.com> Date: Sat, 16 Jun 2001 17:05:57 EDT   Greetings All --   A few weeks ago I heard that Ken Cowan would be playing two programs on = the organ at Christ Episcopal Church in Little Rock and I knew I had to hear = him. The six hour drive from Fort Worth was well worth the effort. I had = thought often of the organ at Christ Church since hearing Marilyn Keiser play it = at the 1977 regional. It is a marvellous instrument of approximately 67 = ranks - a Moller rebuilt by Nichols and Simpson of Little Rock. On Tuesday, the 12th, Ken played a program of transcriptions. It was flawless playing. Ken has an incredible technique and he is in complete control at all times, all the while sitting quite still at the console - = no unnecessary movement. Each transcription was registered very carefully = and Ken used every sound on the organ. It was an outstanding recital in every =   sense of the word. On Thursday, the 14th Ken played a very demanding program - all classical = - beginning with the Fantasy and Fugue in g minor - Bach and ending with Dupre's Variations on a Noel, followed by an encore - I don't know the = exact title, but it's the pedal study by Maneri (not sure of that spelling). Again Ken demonstrated flawless technique, solid musicianship, a complete understanding of every work - and all of it from memory. As I recall, he spoke to the audience twice and his brief remarks were very interesting = and to the point. If you have not heard Ken, please make it a "must do". In forty years of attending organ recitals - many of them in New York City = and vicinity, Ken's is right at the top of the list. Thinking back on the number of programs I have heard by well-known European organists and remembering that I turned pages and pushed pistons for many, and actually registered complete recitals at the Riverside organ for some of them, it pleases me to see a young person (Ken is 26) who is totally in charge of = the organ, and knows exactly how to please an audience. In addition, he has a =   great sense of humor and a wonderful personality. I recommend him highly! As for the Nichols and Simpson instrument at Christ Church, it is a = glorious instrument. Everything balances, every rank seems to be perfectly voiced = - every sound is exquisite. In addition, the acoustics of the church are = just right! While in Little Rock I also had the opportunity to play two other organs rebuilt by Nichols and Simpson - a large 4 manual organ at the Cathedral = of Saint Andrew, (originally a Whitelegg Moller), and a rebuild of a Schantz = at Pulaski Heights Methodist Church. Both of these instruments were also outstanding - excellent for service playing and recitals. It is obvious that Joe Nichols and Wayne Simpson and their employees take great pride in =   their work. If you are ever in the vicinity of Little Rock, or know of = one of their installations in another place, do go and hear. You will be well =   pleased. Also, be sure to hear Ken. I'm hoping he'll be at First Presbyterian, Fort Worth this coming season. I'm looking forward to = hearing him again. Pardon me for going on so long, but I had to share my enthusiasm for the organist and organs I've just heard.

Lemare     Thursday, June 14   =46antasy & Fugue in g minor , BWV 542- J. S. Bach     "Still wie die nacht" (Calm as the night) - Carl Bohm   Toccata - Pi=E8ces de Fantaisie, Opus 53, Deuxi=E8me Suite, VI - Louis Vierne   Roulade - Seth Bingham   Variations on a Noel, Opus 20 - Marcel Dupre   Intermission   Ave Maria and Giga - Enrico Bossi   =46antasia and Fugue on "Ad Nos, ad salutarem undam" =46ranz Liszt   His Encore was: Etude on Salve Regina - Raffaelle Manari   I have to second Bob's feelings, if you haven't heard Ken play in person by all means do so!! Both of these programs were rather demanding and he played them like they weren't anything difficult. His manner at the console is very quiet but boy can he get the sounds out. His pedal technique is not to be believed!! At one point watching him in the Manari, all I could think of was one of the programs that appear on PBS from time to time - RiverDance - the way his feet were bouncing around the pedal board. And the Double Pedal trills towards the end of the Liszt were incredible. He is also a master at registration both in the transcription program and the normal literature program. The Thursday night program was played completely from memory as was part of the Tuesday program. I was told the only reason he used music for part of the Tuesday night concert was that there were so many registrational changes that he needed the scores to keep them all straight. he also learned the Christ Church console very fast as not all of the changes wee done with pistons - there was a fair amount of hand registration done especially on Tuesday night   =46or those of us that are going to the OHS Convention, we will get a chance to hear him on the Duke Aeolian. I think he will be doing the Bingham and Liszt there. He told me the rest of the program and the only other piece I can remember is the First movement of the Widor 5th Symphonie. I know that I am very much looking forward to hearing him at Duke in a week and a half or so.   =46or those "stoplist junkies" amongst us the stoplist is at: http://www.nicholsandsimpson.com/prod01.htm   David Scribner Little Rock, AR
