(Designed by = Dr Francis Jackson and Dr John Vertalot, and voiced by Denys Thurlow) It = has wonderul chorus-work for Bach, very French reeds in a box and enough = colouring flues to satisfy the whims of French Baroque enthusiasts. It = even has a lovely String and Celeste. This is an organ on which it is = possible to play the Durufle Toccata (Jane Parker-Smith recorded on this = instrument) and yet pull off Bach and Bruhns perfectly. The 32ft Serpent = is a wonderul (brass) reed and the big horizontal trumpet adds just = enough "zizz" on full organ.   OK, the action is EP, but I can live with that!   Oh yes! The organ is set out in a twin functional display.....how 60's = can you get?   Regards,   Colin Mitchell UK

Clues?   If it were I, I'd do St. Bartholomew's, 50th and Park. Unequalled carillon recital at Riverside Church, 2ish. Evensong and organ recital at St. Thomas', 53rd and Fifth, c. 4 p.m. Vespers and the mighty Allen Renaissance at St. John the Divine, c. 6 or 7 p.m. (#1 train to 110th and Broadway, and walk to 112th and Amsterdam)   If you're Methodist, go to Christ Church, 60th and Park. If you're Lutheran, do St. Peter's, 54th and Lexington.   More clues as to your preferences are needed. When do you leave home (so = I know deadline for getting late info to you).   Alan    
(back) Subject: Felix Hell's Long Weekend From: "Malcolm Wechsler" <manderusa@earthlink.net> Date: Thu, 14 Nov 2002 12:25:14 -0500   Dear Pipechatterers,   Douglas Campbell posted on PipOrg-L an itinerary of just another of = Felix's busy weekends. which takes me back to when I was perhaps 10, and it was a regular thing that my parents' friends would say about me: "Where does he get all his energy?" THAT hasn't = happened in a while! I know it is a bit irregular to respond on one list to = something that appeared on another, but I hope is o.k. in this instance, as it is a story worth telling.   The weekend of the 15th-17th is, without question, rather busy. In = addition to the Buffalo (Slee Hall) caper, 7:30 this Friday, the Sunday Tully Hall caper (and that really is a caper - more later), and a rather rich and full recital at the Cathedral in = Newark, there is a rehearsal sometime on Saturday for the Tully Hall Caper. Felix = is flying out of Buffalo fairly early on Saturday morning! So, as the Union would have it, there are four "calls" in three days.   The Tully Hall Caper is within a children's concert sponsored by The = Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center. Within this, there is a short play, with Felix playing the role of Count R. Point! I believe there is also a Polly Phony as well as other faniciful musical types. After arriving from the wings on his skateboard(!), Felix has some lines to say, and then rolls = over to the console of the Kuhn for the Toccata and Fugue in D Minor. I believe he plays another big work at the beginning of the proceedings, but I think he just walks in for that.   After this all happens, we need your prayers for a rapid traversal of the Lincoln Tunnel, something that cannot be counted upon. There are times = when one thinks that skateboard might be the only way to get through! Which brings me to my Great Idea! Felix's recital in Newark will be totally memorable. Think <Ad Nos> in that building, that acoustic, that Organ, and that player. I have suggested that to ensure an even greater impact, and = to cause the event to be talked about forever, when it is time to begin, = Felix needs to make his entrance from the great west door, swooping down the endless nave aisle at high speed on his skateboard, which he will already have with him, possibly leaping the chancel steps on it as well, then going calmly to the console to begin, totally unwinded, of course. Even Virgil never did this - as far as I = know. I have begun to like this idea, which is a sure sign of my diminishing mental capacities! Comments?   The importance of a secure Piano technique in Organ playing has often been discussed on these lists. It has also been stated how very clear it is = that Felix possesses a very strong Piano background. The person to whom Felix owes much for his technical strength and prowess is his Piano teacher from Germany, Siegbert Panzer. Mr. Panzer and his wife will be accompanying = Felix on his whirlwind weekend, attending both the Buffalo, Tully Hall, and = Newark events. I mention this only so that if you are at one of the concerts, you will know who these people are, and it might facilitate introductions.   Malcolm Wechsler www.mander-organs.com

(back) Subject: More on Siegbert Panzer at Felix's Recitals This Weekend From: "Malcolm Wechsler" <manderusa@earthlink.net> Date: Thu, 14 Nov 2002 17:27:13 -0500   Dear Lists and Friends,   I mentioned in a recent posting that Felix Hell's Piano study was with Siegbert Panzer, and that Professor and Mrs. Panzer are visiting from Germany, and will be present at Felix's recital tomorrow night (Friday) at Slee Hall at SUNY Buffalo and also at the recital at Sacred Heart Cathedral in Newark = on Sunday. A number of readers have expressed interest in meeting them and = also in possibly learning more about Professor Panzer's teaching methods. Hans-Friedrich Hell, who is now somewhere in Central New York, hopefully snow-free, driving to Buffalo with the Panzers, has given me a bit of biographical information to post, which I now gladly do. (Felix, by the = way, is already on the bench of the Fisk, having flown up earlier in the day.)   "Siegbert Panzer (born 1934) is Professor Emeritus for Piano and = Methodology of Piano Teaching at the State Academy of Music and the Arts (Hochschule fuer Musik und Bildende Kuenste) in Mannheim and well known for his teaching Method "Strukturiertes Klavierspiel", which saved Felix from endless hours of Czerny and Hanon. Professor Panzer developed this method during his tenure at the Academy from 1980 - 2002. It includes measuring brain activities in a Computerized Tomography Scan (CAT) while a student is learning certain musical structures, and he found that the historic methods for learning certain technical patterns pay more attention to the abilities of the playing apparatus (physiology of the hands) rather than brain training, which = seems to me more important than thought in the past. Felix and other students schooled in the system are able perform any scale in any key with any fingering, without ever having studied any scales, Czerny or Hanon. Furthermore, his methods proved particularly effective for the playing of polyphonic works on the piano, which usually require different emphases on different voices even within one hand."   Felix has expressed some interest in trying to give a short demonstration = of the method and some of the exercises that he used in his Piano study. Possibly, only possibly, he might be able to do this after the crowds = leave after both Buffalo and Newark recitals. It would be a question of getting approval in both places, and finding a space for it, and there is always = the chance that it just might not be doable. Hans is now working on that. If = you are interested in this, please do make yourself known to Hans or Felix = after the concerts. Professor Panzer speaks some English, and will, I am sure, = be pleased to be greeted by those interested in his work.   Cheers,   Malcolm Wechsler www.mander-organs.com

(back) Subject: Thanksgiving Day Services in New York City From: "Bob and Jane Hanudel" <hanudel@schoollink.net> Date: Thu, 14 Nov 2002 21:29:34 -0500   Would anyone in Manhattan know of any Thanksgiving Day Services, complete with name of church, location of church, and times? Last year I attended a mass at St. Patrick's on Thanksgiving Day; and while the organ music was beautiful, there just wasn't a whole lot of it! I'm interested in a Thanksgiving Day Mass with organ music.......lots of it!! Many thanks to anyone who might have some information......... Jane Hanudel
