(back) Subject: Re: Concert Tickets Available From: "Mike Gettelman" <mike3247@earthlink.net> Date: Thu, 17 Oct 2002 06:39:44 -0400   I recieved several quick replies asking for the Severance Hall tickets for the organ concert on Nov. 10th, so they have indeed been spoken for. I'm very glad someone could use them who might not get the chance to hear this magnificent instrument otherwise. Cheers Mike

As you saw it was an interesting day. All I can say is don't park in Poughkeepsie without reading the signs!!   (red faced) John V     >Hi again, >Allaround an interesting day. you know the story from the AM. don't >feel too bad about that switch, I located the problem in 10 minutes. >Left it open so we can fix that another time........blah, blah, >blah...    
(back) Subject: Bolcom, Messiaen and Durufle From: "Glenda" <gksjd85@direcway.com> Date: Thu, 17 Oct 2002 20:34:52 -0500   Questions, some stupid, some just inane:   (1) Any recommended recordings of Bolcom's organ works, particularly the gospel pieces? I have heard a couple this year, but own none of my own. My particular favorite piece is "What a Friend".   (2) Any recommended recording of Messiaen's Dieu parmi nous?   (3) Did anyone other than Durufle have a Suite opus 5? Any recommendations for recordings on that one?   Thanks,   Glenda Sutton gksjd85@direcway.com

It's on the Delos label if I remember correctly.
