(back) Subject: Felix Hell - The Love Feast We All Needed From: "Malcolm Wechsler" <manderusa@earthlink.net> Date: Tue, 18 Sep 2001 15:18:54 -0400   Felix Hell was ushered into his 17th year in the most wonderful possible way - in the church he has served for several years, in the (badly = bruised) city he has loved, surrounded by those whom he loves and by whom he is = loved (at least 60 of us, I am guessing), surrounded also by music made for him = by friends, and by him for his friends. Organ List members present were Doug Campbell, Paul Emmons, Sebastian Gluck, Lana Krakovskiy, Tony Marchesano, Dave McPeak, Scott Myers (who played in the concert) - and, of course, = Felix and Hans Hell. Please tell me if I missed anyone.   As the hour of 7:00 approached, we were all handed candles, which we = lighted as we walked out onto Lexington Avenue. Once assembled, we took part in a brief service, a ritual that was being followed in many places at the same time. Part of our backdrop were the many cars and trucks coming down Lexington Avenue flying flags. Prayers were led by the church's Pastor. = Tom Schmidt, Cantor at St. Peter's began the songs, which included just about every patriotic song I know, and I think we all amazed ourselves by = knowing at least the first stanza of every one, in some cases, the second as well. We all sang as though our lives depended upon it, and in a very roundabout way, I suppose it is possible that they do.   We were then invited to the dining room for a fine dinner, following which we moved into the church for music. I think it inappropriate to attempt to review the performances we heard, but there are a few comments I do feel will be of interest. First off, no two people used the instrument in the same way. It sounded totally different with each player. Chelsea Chen is a Juilliard student, I believe from California. She gave a brilliant, energized (and memorized) performance of the big D Major. I made a note = that the organ sounded really just right as she used it. Scott Myers, an = incoming Curtis student (with Felix), played (from memory) four of the Dupre Antiphons we all love. In "How fair and pleasant," Scott found wonderful sounds - a magical discovery of New York's own Cavaille-Coll! "So now as = we journey" is in the style of Bach, and the Sesquialtera provided the solo line. "My soul doth magnify the Lord" is my favorite of all these pieces, with its astonishing crunch harmonies. Chiff is not welcome here - in the lower registers, it almost sounded like an overstuffed Rossignol. I think the 2 against 3 rhythms suffered, needing the kind of broad relaxation difficult when the pipes are so articulate. "O Christ, forgive thy servants," I thought had some very minor cross rhythm troubles, but it was = a fine performance all the same. Choosing these pieces turned out to be a = bit of missionary work for Scott, in that quite a number of people said later that they did not know these works. Well done, Scott. Andreas Petersen = came all the way from Dusseldorf to help Felix celebrate his birthday, and brought with him not Bach and Reger, but Guilmant and Elgar. He also = brought with him rather an amazing musical construction, a huge poster sort of device on the music desk, designed to avoid page turns. I'd have got lost, but it worked well for him, although it looked a bit strange. On this = trip, he was also playing a concert (this past Sunday) at St. John's Lutheran Church in Allentown, PA, an organ that has everything (lucky Stephen Williams). The Klais here is small, and I think Andreas may have misjudged = a bit in guessing that the way to make it bigger is to add all the stops, = but really, and I think it takes a bit of time to work it out, less can be = more. Having said that, he played brilliantly, the Elgar perhaps a bit Germanically, and it was great to hear and meet him, and what a lovely gesture to come all that way. One other friend was to come from Germany, = but was unable to get into the country because of the airport closings. Peter Stoltzfus I have known for a hundred years, and he never fails to delight. He offered us three Gershwin Preludes for Piano, pointing out that he had programmed with a bit of whimsy in mind, and wondered if whimsy was what was called for in light of the horrors of this week, but then decided that the choice remained apt, in that Gershwin was the quintessential New York musician, which made his presence welcome. It was. The second, slow, and perhaps best known one, really worked most wonderfully as an organ piece. Someone with a very good set of ears said to me they were sure that Peter had inserted "Happy Birthday" into the third prelude. Peter? Had we heard the Rhapsody in Blue, I would have dissolved in a puddle!   I am walking on eggs about what I want to say now, and hope I will not be misunderstood. When Felix settled into the great Passacaglia, it felt like the master had taken over, so comfortable was the music making that followed. A big explanation for this is, of course, the fact that this has been Felix's instrument for several years. [In fact, an official announcement was made at some point that the church is keeping Felix's = name on the bulletin as one of the musicians of the parish!] He should be the most sure and comfortable on that bench, and so he was. This was not one = of those Plenum-Throughout performances. Registrations were varied and interesting throughout, and the great moments, to big tops of the tension curves, were truly made significant. When I was at Oberlin, I heard the Passacaglia for the first time ever, on the Finney Chapel Organ, now gone, and it was a crushing (in the best sense) Road to Damascus sort of experience. I was in a trance for a long time, and all that came flooding back on this occasion, helped of course by the raw emotional nerves of us all. What better then than <O Mensch bewein,> with a lovely Cornet with Tremulant, and a singing and moving flexibility. Felix had something else planned as his last piece, but felt that the Mendelssohn Sixth Sonata with its <Vater unser> seemed right for the circumstances in which we find ourselves. This was wonderful playing throughout - Limpid where needed, exciting where needed, but all full of strength and dignity. Before he = began the Sonata, Felix asked very simply if we would maintain silence after the last movement, the beautiful Andante. We all gratefully sat quietly for a few moments until someone gently bid us to move out of the church for the cutting of the birthday cake. We sang and we ate again, and enjoyed one = last bit of the company of so many friends, realizing perhaps more than ever = how much we needed and appreciated one another. As for Felix, he spent the = night in New York, and then he and Hans took off for Connecticut to practice for = a very full and demanding recital on Sunday afternoon. Bon Smith, whom it = was great to catch up with, has already spoken of that, and from his remarks, you will know it was a great occasion. I want to add a few scribblings = about that rather amazing event. Having heard Felix quite a few times, you would think I would be "amazed-out," but in fact, I thought certain things at = this recital that hadn't struck me quite the same way before.   Best to all,   Malcolm Wechsler

That is, the eu as the eu in the French word "feu", the ch har= d (not that this is inevitably the case in French, as it's not for example in "architecture", though it is in "arch=E9ologie"), and the accent on the secon= d (i.e., final) syllable. Reuchsel's ancestors came from Thuringia, but have lived in France since the early 19th century, so after nearly two centuries we ought, I think, to consider his name French. I had the honor of playing Reuchsel's "Douceur des champs de lavande fleurie" this past July at Saint-Sulpice with Daniel Roth singing along behind my right shoulder, and the chance to talk with him off and on for over a week (in the context of the French Organ Music Seminar) in which we talked some about Reuchsel--and he did not correct my pronunciation of the name.     Randy Runyon Music Director Zion Lutheran Church Hamilton, Ohio runyonr@muohio.edu         on 9/18/01 2:55 PM, TubaMagna@aol.com at TubaMagna@aol.com wrote:   > Van: > Is the composer's last name given the French pronunciation or the German = one? > One would hate to embarrass onesself at a cocktail party by making such a= n > error... > Sebastian=20 > Seriously interested in NYC >=20 > "Pipe Up and Be Heard!" > PipeChat: A discussion List for pipe/digital organs & related topics > HOMEPAGE : http://www.pipechat.org > List: mailto:pipechat@pipechat.org > Administration: mailto:admin@pipechat.org > Subscribe/Unsubscribe: mailto:requests@pipechat.org >=20

But, I can report that Simon Nieminski states in his excelle= nt notes that the Reuchsels migrated from Thuringia to Vesoul in the early 1= 9th century and settling in Lyon in 1824. Eug=E8ne's great-grandfather was organist of the Chartreux in Lyon, grandfather was the organist at St-Bonaventure in Lyon, and father was organist of St-Denis du St-Sacrement in Paris (is this the same as what w= e know as plain 'ole "St-Denis, home of "first" symphonic C-C?).   Since Eug=E8ne was born in 1900, it seems that his family must have been thoroughly steeped in French culture (or were they "infused?"-- I guess a= ny culinary verb will do since they were in Lyon!).
