That all comes back = with a rush, to the memory of the last of the three recitals on the three = Organs in the chapel. Mark Brombaugh on the big Flentrop, Margaret Irwin Brandon = on the Brombaugh Organ, and Ken on the big Aeolian. Who else but the OHS = could put together a night like this? Here is what I wrote about this that year:   "Once again, I have to say that words won't do in describing Ken's simply stunning performance of a perfect piece for right where we were, the Liszt <Ad nos, ad salutarem undam.> That's not a cop out. It's the reality. Use your imagination. The long bus ride back to Winston and the hotel and exhibit area - and bar - seemed somehow shorter than expected, such was = the happy chatter about what we had just heard, and what we had heard = throughout this extraordinary day. If you don't come to an OHS convention, this sort = of wonder can't come your way - and there is still tomorrow, one more day to tell about."   Sorry to include the commercial for the OHS, but I thought it was a good idea, given that next year in Buffalo in July (14th through 20th) is going to be spectacular. When the roster becomes public, it will knock socks = off! It is still true, by the way, that Thomas Trotter gave an endlessly memorable performance of the Liszt Ad Nos at Princeton in the University Chapel, shortly after the Organ was completed.   There we have it.

With Liszt it's a whole pub crawl around the most pretentious places in town.   Don't worry....it's me!   Wagner has the same effect, I'm afraid.   I hear the opening chords of the "Ring" and the next thing I know, people are trampling all over my feet looking for the bar.   Of course, others detest Reger, but who am I to question their lack of taste, intellect or musical integrity?   :)   Regards,   Colin Mitchell UK         --- Malcolm Wechsler <manderusa@earthlink.net> wrote: Thomas Trotter > gave an endlessly > memorable performance of the Liszt Ad Nos at > Princeton in the University       __________________________________ Do you Yahoo!?

(back) Subject: Re: Langlais and added 6ths (was Atl. City party horns) From: <DERREINETOR@aol.com> Date: Sat, 30 Aug 2003 11:10:16 EDT   Bob,   I enjoy much of Langlais, yet am certainly not offended that you (and = others) do not. I would agree that his harmonic language does not appeal to = everyone but I don't share your disdain for his compositional "disgusting machinations".You certainly wouldn't enjoy my Variations on "Hanover", in = which I fragment the tune and treat it serially (in the manner of Bartok, rather than, say, =   Webern). The final variation, which treats the fragmented tune in = retrograde inversion, owes quite a bit to Langlais, harmonically speaking. I duly = acknowledge that this kind of music is not to every organist's taste. However, I find that among instrumentalists, organists tend to have (necessarily have) the = best working knowledge of "common practice" theory and advanced/20th century = theory and thus have highly developed personal tastes in harmony, counterpoint = and form. Langlais, like mountain oysters, is an acquired taste indeed--and I wouldn't fault anyone for deciding they dislike either one.   I play some Langlais myself, although I do not use much of it in service playing (save the Song of Peace and a few others). I am fond of the Suite = Breve and the Homage a Frescobaldi, both of which I play with great enjoyment. = On a couple of occasions I have used the Epilogue from the Homage a Frescobaldi = as an audition piece for church gigs. It may have been a rather cheap move, but = I did get the jobs. I have never used it in the context of a worship = service, however, nor would I likely do so.   If you're interested in seeing what folks think about 20th century organ music in which calls for such techniques as "leaning on the keys with = one's forearm", ask what people think about Ligeti's "Volumina". Hear that piece = more than once, and you might begin to form a better opinion of Langlais!   Bill H.
