(back) Subject: A SUMMER EVENING OF ORGAN MUSIC (x post) From: <ScottFop@aol.com> Date: Wed, 11 Jun 2003 22:27:29 EDT     --part1_130.20fd0735.2c193f11_boundary Content-Type: text/plain; charset=3D"ISO-8859-1" Content-Transfer-Encoding: quoted-printable   Earlier tonight, Memphians were treated to an organ recital by David = Burton=3D20 Brown. The Church of St. Louis, King of France hosted us. David's program = w=3D as=3D20 as follows:   Grand Dialogue in C - Louis Marchand (from Troisieme Livre d'Orgue:=3DA0 Pieces d'Orgue)   Trio Sonata Number Five in C Major=3DA0(BWV 529) - J. S. Bach i. Allegro ii. Largo iii. Allegro   Dorian Toccata and Fugue in D Minor=3DA0(BWV 538) - J. S. Bach   Fantaisie pour Orgue: "Arches" - Gaston Litaize   Symphony Number Six=3DA0 (Opus 59) - Louis Vierne ii. Aria v. Final     St. Louis Church's new pipe organ was built by the firm of Casavant-Freres = o=3D f=3D20 St. Hyacinthe, Quebec, Canada. It is Casavant's Opus 3785 and was = dedicated=3D =3D20 in 2000. It contains 32 stops, 22 ranks and 1243 pipes. There are=3D20 preparations for an additional four stops (5 ranks and one extension) = which=3D20=3D will bring=3D20 the organ to a total of 27 ranks. =3D20   The design of the organ is rather interesting and makes for an = extremely=3D20 flexible instrument. It is installed in the rear gallery with exposed = pipes=3D of=3D20 the Grand Orgue and Pedale divisions (which are also very dramatically = lit).=3D =3D20 The Recit is enclosed in the north chamber and the rather hefty Soubasse = is=3D20 installed in the south chamber. The organ is very fine and speaks forth = int=3D o the=3D20 nave with great clarity and with absolutely NO lack of assertion. Let's = jus=3D t=3D20 say that the egress into the room is better than excellent. I think = that=3D20 speaks for itself. The specification is as follows:   GRAND ORGUE 16 Bourdon a Cheminee 8 Montre 8 Flute a Cheminee 4 Prestant 4 Flute a Cheminee 2 Flute II Cornet IV Fourniture 16 Basson (Recit) 8 Trompette 8 Hautbois (Recit) MIDI 16 Recit to Grand Orgue 8 Recit to Grand Orgue 4 Recit to Grand Orgue   RECIT 8 Bourdon 8 Viole de Gamba 8 Voix Celeste 4 Principal 4 Flute a Fuseau 2-2/3 Nazard (prepared) 2 Principal 1-3/5 Tierce (prepared) 1-1/3 Quinte III Plein Jeu (prepared) 16 Basson (1-12 prepared) 8 Trompette (Grand Orgue) 8 Trompette 8 Hautbois Tremblant 16 Recit Unison Off 4 Recit   PEDALE 32 Basse Acoustique 16 Soubasse 8 Octave Basse 8 Flute a Cheminee (Grand Orgue) 4 Octave 4 Flute a Cheminee (Grand Orgue) 16 Bombarde (1-12 ext. of G.O. Trompette) 16 Basson (Recit) 8 Trompette (Grand Orgue) 4 Clairon (Grand Orgue) 4 Hautbois (Recit) 8 Grand Orgue to Pedale 8 Recit to Pedale   I will say without a doubt that the organ has one of the beautiful = and=3D20 spectacular visual displays of pipework in the city of Memphis and = surroundi=3D ng=3D20 areas. (A very close second, though larger, would be the Reuter at = Ridgeway=3D =3D20 Baptist Church).   Scott F.

(back) Subject: Erato: "L'orgue du chaillot" recording From: "Colin Mitchell" <cmys13085@yahoo.co.uk> Date: Thu, 12 Jun 2003 04:48:16 +0100 (BST)   Hello,   No sooner said than done!   Micahel Fox is quite right...the recording is an Erato one, of which there are two versions in Mono & Stereo.   I have the Stereo one, catalogue no. STE5088.   The Mono version is LDEV 3199.   Andre Marchal and Robert Dufourq do the talking, whilst Marchal does the playing. I think I may have got it wrong about Victor Gonalez being interviewed, now that I look again at the record sleeve, which happens to have a photograph of Gonzalez on the sleeve notes.   Another interesting feature of this record is the fact that Marchal improvises, and he was one of the best. There are probably very few (if any) recordings of his skills in this direction.   The record must date from around the time that I was somewhere between 15 and 17 years of age, which would be 1964-66, and the copy I have is virtually mint with a pristine sleeve.   If Andres wants this, I will keep a DAT recording of it and photocopy the sleeve for my own archives.   Being in a quite non-resonant building, and recorded close to the organ, the sound is a bit brittle to say the least, but for anyone interested in voicing, this may be an advantage.   Regards,   Colin Mitchell UK       --- M Fox <ophicleide16@direcway.com> wrote: >   > > I'd be very grateful to know the label and catalog > number of this > interesting record.
