(back) Subject: RE: what conservatories teach From: "Andr=E9s G=FCnther" <agun@telcel.net.ve> Date: Fri, 6 Jun 2003 16:28:59 -0400   Andres Gunther agun@telcel.net.ve   These are good news indeed. I forgot to mention that *both* my colleagues studied in France. They are terrific performers but lack all church music basics- remember my story about "Oh Mensch Bewein dein Suende gross"?- = here goes another one. I never forget the day a colleague played the *whole* = BACH Fantaisie and Fugue from Liszt as Entrance Praeludium in the German = Lutheran church. The Pastor (who is an organ lover) went nuts! Congregation accompaniment is a tricky thing. I think about the "feedback-delay-efect" (as I call it for myself): You sit at the organ and feel that the congregation sings slower than you play. Unexperienced = people (no matter how good organists they are) tend to slow down at the organ to "get in phase"- and the allegro Moderato becomes a Laaaaaaaargo :) Every trade has its tricks...   Cheers Andres =3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D= =3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D First was the cat, then was the Orgler.

(back) Subject: Some believe it or not (was: weddings) From: "Andr=E9s G=FCnther" <agun@telcel.net.ve> Date: Fri, 6 Jun 2003 16:43:56 -0400   Andres Gunther agun@telcel.net.ve   Dear Chatlist!   At first, my congratulations in advance to Keith and Lee. Regretfully I = live so far away from you and cannot attend your wedding- for sure it will be *terrific*, musically seen and all. Wish you the best!   At second, yes: My rather vitriolic remarks about weddings... It doesn't apply to Lee and Keith :)- but I hardly know an organist here who doesn't cringe (even a little). I wrote about the "levantinic bargain struggle". Perhaps in USA (where most List members live) things are more "hanseatic correct" :)- but here, *oh my*.- What drives me nuts however is that the worst bargain-strugglers belong to the 'upper 15%' citizens who have lots of money and spend millions in chi-chi.   The bride is always half to one hour late; even taking in account Latin America's natural unpunctuality this goes = into extreme for me. Then, at last minute a guy (or a lady) stands at the choir door announcing gayly that she (or he) will sing the (in) famous Ave = Maria, without rehearsal (what for? It's soooo easy, listen: "AAaaave; [big = vacuum cleaner breath]; Mariiiiiiiiiiiaaaaa"...) I am not joking but anyway there goes a big <G>!   Even when all newlyweds have to make an extensive Pre-Marital-Course, it seems to be that the priest feels an obbligation to give the whole darned course *again* at his wedding speach (I won't = profane the word "homily" here :). The most wedding guests weren't in church since their First Communion and don't know nothing, from proper behaviour up to the Pater Noster. Since (occasional jokes and anecdotes aside) I am rather old fashioned in my religious feelings, my blood pressure rises to the clouds every time; and I don't feel as a "minister" anymore but as a clown acting at a bad Vaudeville :)   At last, wedding is over. Saturday evening in shambles. My wife wringing hands because I have to go home by foot in pitch darkness through shady neighbourhoods keeping in mind that every weekend 60 people are murdered = in Caracas. For this reason, after 8,00 pm on weekends no bus or shuttle service is available. Our churches don't have parking lots, and parking the car on the street can bring nasty surprises, worst scenario a Houdini-like car vanishing act- no kidding, folks. Is this worth the lousy 40.000 Bolivar (20 bucks)?-   At third: Andrew's question about copyright. I won't get into shady = details, enough to say that almost all our writers, composers and software = designers register their opus abroad because copyright laws exist only on paper = here, and that "burned" music and software CDs are available for 50 US-cents = from any street vendor. So it doesn't matter when a record is used in the = church (at no extra fee) if I cannot or won't get into a "wedding adventure" :)   Shocked?- Please don't misunderstand me: It isn't my intention to diminish my country but to explain. These believe-it-or-not-stories are no bad-intentioned or cheap profit sports from our people. 85% of the population lives in critical poverness. 4 millions unemployed. Monthly = wage is less than 50 $ but minimum expenses surpass 100 $. Forget about Social Security. This way, people have to deffend themselves. Sometimes we = consider it a miracle that the folks here still can laugh and marry :), despite the nasty situation... and that in our five Million City only 60 people are murdered each weekend!   Cheers Andres   (BTW I have to attend a wedding at the german lutheran congregation tomorrow- a choir member- THAT's a very different story; our german lutherans take things more seriously and are punctual - *hanseatic = correct*! :)- and they don't want the Wagner-Mendelsshon-Schubert medley; they want *music* :) ....A nice weekend to all, orglers, non orglers, newlyweds or not :) =3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D= =3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D First was the cat, then was the Orgler.

(back) Subject: A Forward from the AGO RE: Pipe Organs in the Press From: "Administrator" <admin@pipechat.org> Date: Fri, 6 Jun 2003 20:36:34 -0500   I received this from AGO Headquarters today and thought I would forward it. For those of you that are not attending THE Wedding you might want to tune in the ABC News tomorrow evenings.   David   ******************************************************************* Greetings:   Please let me share some good news. For the past several weeks, it has been very exciting to see stories in the mainline media about the pipe organ and those of us who play it. The recent publication and release of Craig Whitney's new book, All the Stops, is certainly riding at the top of this exciting publicity wave.   There have been several articles about Whitney's book and the pipe organ in The New York Times. These can be read online at http://www.nytimes.com/. Wednesday morning, NPR's Morning Edition included a story about the organ, leading with the AGO's Pipe Organ Encounters program, and followed by musical performances by Mark Bani on the new Schantz organ at St. Vincent Ferrer Church in Manhattan, and an interview with Craig Whitney. If you missed it, you can listen to it on the Web at http://discover.npr.org/rundowns/segment.jhtml?wfId=3D1286349.   On Saturday, June 7 ABC World News Tonight will include a story about the pipe organ that features interviews with Ken Cowan, Paul Jacobs, Kent Tritle, Ray Biswanger, and Craig Whitney; film footage of the Dallas International Organ Competition and of Kent Tritle in recital at St. Ignatius Loyola Church in Manhattan; and citations of new organs by Bedient and Fisk. I also understand ABC will be taping a portion of the Wanamaker Grand Court Organ Day for broadcast.   ABC World News Tonight airs on Saturday at 6:30 p.m. EDT. Please check local listings and tune in.   All best wishes from,   Tony   ____________________________________ F.

(back) Subject: A prayer or two would be nice . . . From: "Glenda" <gksjd85@direcway.com> Date: Fri, 06 Jun 2003 19:33:46 -0500   While Lee and Keith are preparing for the mistake of their lives (aren't we all?), and are rushing willy-nilly into holy matrimony, I am preparing to play my first Sunday service in a year. I'm subbing for a friend on Sunday on a beautiful little Kenneth Jones tracker in a Methodist church.   I was so excited to be asked to play on a Pentecost Sunday, but he said they don't really do anything to recognize it, and the organist solo time slots (prelude, offertory, postlude) are really short. So I sadly put away my Durufle.   I also started to pull out all new repertoire to learn, but a voice (yes, I hear them now and again) said, "Keep it simple, stupid."   So I picked music I'm as familiar with as my cats' meows, but stuff not in my friend's repertoire, to promote variety and prevent unfavorable comparisons.   Now I'm nervous that I haven't been nervous enough. I've been playing better than I ever have, and have no broken bones or sprained body parts. My only handicap has been the absence of any combination pistons, only large clunky draw knobs. I don't mind manually changing stops, but a general cancel button would have been so nice.   I have plenty of bananas, so maybe Sunday will go OK. But if any of you have a spare prayer, I'd appreciate it.   Oh, God, I've got to wear a choir robe . . . .   Glenda Sutton gksjd85@direcway.com
