(back) Subject: Re: review of review of review From: "Jackson R. Williams II" <jackwilliams_1999@yahoo.com> Date: Thu, 15 Mar 2001 04:11:29 -0800 (PST)   I didn't find Mr. LaMirande's review particularly offensive-his heart was in the right place-but rather uninformed. Mr. Van Oosten has an impressive discography to his credit and an established international concert organist. Furthermore, I don't understand why Mr. LaMirande places such importance on an artist knowing the organ in Montreal. Such a criteria is superfluous when discussing the merits of a performance. The on statement that did bother me refered to playing a note perfect performance. I might remind Mr. LaMirande that a note-perfect performance doesn't necessarily mean a performance that is satisfying. Case in point: Horowitz dropped a hundred notes during his performances, but one was one the edge of his seat the whole time. Also, Virgil Fox was known to have dropped a few notes as well.   Jonathan Hall, known for his ascerbic wit, was, in his response, being....well, Jonathan. I might add that I know a couple of other factoids from friends about Mr. Hall. Before moving to Bloomington, he was also an English major at the University of Chicago in the late 1980's. He studied organ there with people like Thomas Weisflog and David Schrader (both organists of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra). He performed often in the university community and hung out with pals such as the above mentioned organists and Alexander Frey, of all people! Not a bad crowd with which to be involved! In addition, he served as assistant organist at Fourth Presbyterian Church. It was a time of momentous change in Jonathan's life and it is wonderful to see him doing so well. Keep in mind that he switched from English to Music during that time and has accomplished much since. --- DudelK@aol.com wrote: > Au contraire.

But you might like to know that the summer organ concert series at l'Oratoire St. Joseph takes place every Wednesday in July at = August at 8 p.m.   Each year, the series has a theme. In various years, the theme has been Bach, Franck, Liszt, Reger, Mendelssohn/Brahms, Widor, Guilmant, Vierne, = etc. In 1998, the theme was Canadian composers. In 1999, the theme was Franz Schmidt --- in commemoration of a double anniversary: the 125th of the composer's birth and the 60th of his death. (Inasmuch as I had suggested = the theme to them myself, they were kind enough to invite me to participate. =   Judging by the review in La Presse, mine turned out to be the highlight of =   that season!) Last year, the theme was: the 40th aniversary of the titulaire-ship of Raymond Daveluy at the Oratory. So Daveluy gave several =   performances himself (usually, he gives the final one of the season), and others were given by Rachel Laurin (associate organist there) and by = Messrs Guillou and Roth from Paris and Jacques Boucher of Montreal's St. Jean-Baptiste Church.   I don't know yet what the theme will be for this year: they usually send = out the information in May or June. Anyone who would like to be put on their mailing list can do so by writing to:   Les Concerts Spirituels 3800 Chemin Queen Mary Montreal, QC H3V 1H6   Oh, I should forewarn yo'all: Montreal is a French-speaking city.

But sorry: I'm keeping it a secret!   Incidentally: during July and August, there are also concerts every = Thursday or Friday (the day varies from year to year) at the Notre Dame Basilica = (of Luigi Pavarotti fame). In July, it is usually l'Orchestre Symphonique de Montre'al; in August it's usually organ recitals --- on the great 1892 Casavant organ --- by the titulaire, Pierre Grandmaison.

It won't be high tech like PipeChat but I am sure you will have a lot to contribute.   The names below are great but I should have added that it will not just be for pipe organists,although that is my main interest(to put it mildly...I am learning all I can about pipe organs between lessons!) right now and I expect to have a lot of discussion on the topic of pipe organs.   I am on a Kindermusik list and 2 piano teacher lists and there are organists on all of those lists who are interested in joining.   Thanks for sending the names...any more suggestions?     Anyone from PipeChat is welcome to join. Just send me an email privately. Thanks!         > Rankchat > Pipetalk > Eduorgan > Palletpokers > Peddalbashers > Stopstabbers > > I could go on and on.

(back) Subject: Practice Organ From: "Cindy Adams" <clavinova98@yahoo.com> Date: Thu, 15 Mar 2001 09:05:49 -0800 (PST)   Hi-   As you all know, I am a beginner and my question is about an organ to use at home for practice. Is this practical? (Of course I would get a used one somewhere)   I guess I am asking is it practical in terms of practicing pedal work (and manual) or is there just too much difference in pipe and electric to learn good technic? I realize i would need a full size pedal board such as the one on the pipe organ.   Also, how long should i practice each day? (i am sure my teacher will tell me) but I plan to start with an hour a day on organ and also practice piano. I am very serious about learning to play the pipe organ and very motivated. I want to advance as quickly as I can.   Also...what is a reasonable cost for organ lessons?   Cindy           --- Jerrell Kautz <jkautz@ebicom.net> wrote: > There certainly is nothing like a Hammond.

I want to advance as quickly as I can.   It's not HOW LONG, but HOW MUCH you CONCENTRATE, and how much you ACCOMPLISH. Once I got out of college, I discovered I could do a GREAT DEAL in an hour, because an hour was often all the time I HAD.   Work out EVERYTHING ... fingering, pedalling, articulation, phrasing, registration ... and MARK it ... it'll be easier to come back to a piece later that's well-marked.   I dislike the piano intensely ... always have ... but it's useful for building strength and dexterity, among other things (strength of character?) (grin).   > Also...what is a reasonable cost for organ lessons? > > Cindy >   I continued to take lessons after I graduated from college ... at that time (in the '70s), my teacher was charging $50 an hour, but she was a tenured full professor in a conservatory.   Above all, HAVE FUN!   Cheers,   Bud
