There was no player in the country who could play such a complex piece at such short notice, since they would need to practice for weeks if not months. Finally, the deceased's parents found that there was a tape in the house of the young man himself playing the piece he loved so much. So the tape was played at the funeral.   John Speller

(back) Subject: VIRGIL FOX MEMORIAL CONCERT From: "LAWRENCE W. NEVEL" <lnwbpa@Home.com> Date: Tue, 09 Oct 2001 20:32:22 -0400   Dear Members, Did anyone besides me attend the concert on Sunday at the Lord & Taylor Store? I have been searching both Pipechat & Pipeorg for a review and haven't found a word mentioned yet. I'd love to hear from others. I am NOT an organist and mostly just lurk, but I enjoyed the concert immensely. It is such a treat to hear the organ improve each time I hear it. It was wonderful when Carlo Curly played it 2 years ago and sounded so much better on Sunday. I know more divisions were restored over the last two years. I'm sure there will be criticism of the concert from someone, but I thought just overcoming the obstacles of distance to do the Rachmoninoff Concerto #2 was a feat in itself and to get through the whole thing without a major hitch was fabulous. I have always wanted to hear the Carillon done in person. It was so much better sound wise then the Fox recording as were all the other pieces. Don't misunderstand me. I'm not saying they were played any better or worse, they just sounded better in person with the organ working better. And I'd dearly love to have a recording of Peter's Tristan & Isolda (sp) despite loosing his place. I didn't get the feeling of being rushed on Sunday. He did a beautiful job. This piece really belongs on this instrument. Did anyone find the camera cutting away from Peter during the Sorcerer's Apprentice annoying? I so wanted to see every movement he made, and cutting to a picture of the facade was annoying to me. Another question I have-being a non organist. It seemed several times that Peter was at full organ and swells were open as far as they go. At the end of several pieces- the Franck and Vierne- the last second or two Peter was able to squeeze more sound out of the instrument. What was his method? An extra set of swell shades on the top of the box or something? He was just able to make it more powerful without the apparent addition of more stops. Or am I mistaken? Just curious. And someone who knows- was that Ken Cowan who was Peter's page turner/place finder? :-) Will there be a CD of this concert? I certainly hope so. I anxiously await the new CD Peter is selling next month. And will Ken Cowan try a CD from this instrument any time soon? I hope recordings are forthcoming if for no other reason then historical preservation. You never know when something might happen and the organ is gone forever- God Forbid!! This should be declared a NATIONAL/INTERNATIONAL Treasure if it isn't already. Larry Nevel

Of course there have been centuries to standardize things.   Anyhow, I have fixed the index page to my site with multiple references to the Free Music so it should work a bit better for all.   I'd like to thank Jane for her kind words.   noel

The experience was overwhelming. I'll leave it to some of the others who have already heaped superlatives on the performance. It gave a whole new meaning to "surround sound"   Kudos to all involved!   John V

It has the Sorcerer's Apprentice on =   it that you heard on Sunday night. Everyone that I spoke to at the store (I was one of the ushers ) couldn't say enough about the concert - the sounds were absolutely fantastic, & the crowd was the most quietest I've ever heard at a concert - no coughs or rustles - it was like they were holding their breath. Even before the concert started, it seemed like no one was breathing. And to top it off - a reception in the Crystal Tea Room - a true night to remember. This was the 1st after hours concert in 75 years. The organ = was in the best shape it's been in in years & years. The restoration is still =   on-going & the organ symposium has done a fantastic job. All in all a magical event.
