(back) Subject: SYMPHONY HALL From: "mack02445" <mack02445@mindspring.com> Date: Fri, 10 Jan 2003 10:52:45 -0500   After several people ahve had problems opening the jpg file I am posting, to the open list after all, the text version of this article from the Globe archives. Mack   AT THE BSO, AN OLD ORGAN GETS NEW LIFE Author(s): Richard Dyer, Globe Staff Date: January 8, 2003 Page: C5 Section: Arts The Boston Symphony Orchestra will restore and rebuild its famous Aeolian-Skinner pipe organ, which has fallen into disrepair in the 53 years since it was installed. The firm of Foley-Baker Inc. of Tolland, Conn., will undertake the work, which is expected to cost $3 million, including an endowment for the future upkeep of the instrument. An anonymous donor has contributed a $1.5 million matching gift so the work can begin. On Sunday, major sections of the instrument will be removed from Symphony Hall and taken to Connecticut for reconditioning. Reinstallation begins next summer. Registration and tuning will take place in the summer of 2003; if all goes well, the instrument will be rededicated in the fall of 2004, coinciding with the arrival of James Levine as music director. Plans call for a new three- manual console that will offer a better sightline to the podium, and five stops that were part of the original design but never installed will be built. The organ was created in 1949 under the direction of the famous builder and designer G. Donald Harrison, and it incorporated elements of the original organ built for Symphony Hall by George Hutchings in 1900. The instrument contains 59 voices, 80 ranks, and more than 4,500 pipes. Legendary organist E. Power Biggs played the dedication concert Oct. 7, 1949; music director Charles Munch led him and the orchestra in a Handel concerto. Organist James David Christie, who has played the Symphony Hall instrument for more than two decades and who performed the last solo recital on it back in 1984, describes it as "dilapidated." "E. Power Biggs told me that everyone was unhappy about the instrument from the time of the first concert, so various efforts were made to improve it over the years, and it ended up as a patchwork quilt," he says. "Now whole sections of the organ are disconnected, and it is full of dead notes. A performer needs to find ways to work around the things that don't function." Supervising the rebuilding process is orchestra manager Ray Wellbaum. "The organ was never kept up . . . and there are only so many Band-Aids that you can put on it," he says. "Jim Christie and others have kept us from some very embarrassing moments. Now we have a wonderful firm working for us, and organ consultants Jack Bethards in San Francisco and acoustical consultant Acentech in Cambridge. We had hoped to incorporate this project as part of our larger master plan for the entire building. That project has been postponed because of the state of the economy, but we are moving forward on the organ because it's a musical necessity."

(back) Subject: late Christmas present (X-posted) From: <quilisma@socal.rr.com> Date: Fri, 10 Jan 2003 11:57:54 -0800   "GRUNT" Pigorian Chant from Snouto Domoinko de Silo (!) Discovered, translated, notated and illuminated by Sandra Boynton, Ad Hog Historian (!!) Workman Publishing, New York   Subtitled "ad minorem gloriam porcorum" (!!!)   It's rather like the Latin volume of "Mad" Magazine (chuckle), but the SINGING is positively ETHERIAL, rhythmic modes and ALL (grin).   At one point the cows sing:   (solo cantor, a chicken:)   Ecce MacDonaldus Senex, qui fundum habet. E.I.E.I.O.   (et omnes boves respondant:)   Et in hoc fundo, nonnullas boves domesticas habet. E.I.E.I.O.   Cum moo moo hic, cum moo moo ibi. Hic una moo, ibi una moo, ubique una moo moo.   etc.   The chickens sing in three-part gymel, which moves the writer to opine that it must be very ancient, since Caesar observed, "omnes Gallinae in partes tres divisae sunt" ("all chickens are divided into three parts").   Cheers,   Bud    
(back) Subject: Austria From: "Colin Mitchell" <cmys13085@yahoo.co.uk> Date: Fri, 10 Jan 2003 22:23:07 +0000 (GMT)   Hello,   A slightly belated welcome to Thomas Mohr.....I was trying to find Austria on the map!   "What do I know about Austria?" I asked myself.   I know about Salzburg and Vienna, I know it has hills, good ski-ing, a famous Boy's Choir, an annual Strauss New Year concert and Vienna Cathedral is called St.Stephen's.   Then I thought of Mozart and Archdukes, Edelweiss and "the Sound of Music"....isn't Innsbruck in Austria?   The name "Silver Chapel" springs to mind.   I once met Martin Haselbock in a Dutch tavern in Haarlem and we shared a drink and a very convivial hour together....then I discovered that he had just won the International Improvisation Award at Haarlem!   Now stretching my grey matter to its limits, I remembered the Steyr-Puch factory, Adolf Hitler and a girl called Heidi.   Quite clearly, I am extremely ignorant of Austria even though my next door neighbour is Austrian....I hang my head in shame.   So Thomas, please tell us more of Austria and some of the organs/organists there....only then will we be able to do for Austria what we did for Holland!   Regards,   Colin Mitchell UK     Thomas Mohr <thomasmohr@aon.at> wrote: > Hello all, > > first of all, thanks for accepting me in your list,     __________________________________________________ Do You Yahoo!?
