(1) That to the listener, natural sounds are preferred to processed = sounds forced through loudspeakers. (2) That pipe organs can be scaled to each individual room, and do not = need to be processed electronically, digitally, or otherwise, to be effective. = A good builder knows his scaling. (3) That when electronic means are used to distort, "Picasso-like," the natural balance of things, it makes for an unmusical mess.   Sebastian M. Gluck New York City

It is a stone building with a 1930 Casavant Organ. Does anyone have any experiences there. Is the organ "original" 1930? How is the room? Any information will be welcome.   TIA   Mack

That's very interesting indeed. I didn't know about this engagement= .. It must be on the very edge of his Norwegian tour. Good preparation, perhaps=8BNorway being anciently big on wooden stav-churches (probably NO organs), but a BIT more recently on huge STONE churches. Nidaros, for the best example, where I THINK he'll be playing BOTH organs in mid-July.   I hope you get some interesting responses; I'll be watching for them.   Alan www.stlukesnyc.org        
(back) Subject: Passing of Fred Gollnick From: "Robert Ridgeway" <robert@magneticlab.com> Date: Wed, 25 Jun 2003 18:30:39 -0500   For those who might not be aware, Fred Gollnick passed away this morning after a long battle with cancer. He was 52 years old. Fred was a life-long pipe organ builder, restorer and craftsman. Fred grew up in the pipe organ business. His father was the president of the Barton Organ Company and was responsible for the installation of the giant =   Barton in the Chicago Stadium.   Fred lived in Lake Geneva, WI. He was intimately involved in the installation and restoration of the Sanfilippo 5/80 Wurlitzer pipe organ. Fred did all of the chamber layout design and the intricate winding and regulator placement. The Sanfilippo instrument is a shining example of Fred's outstanding pipe organ craftsmanship and every concert and CD produced on it will be a reminder of his careful attention to detail. His =   sense of humor and fine work ethic will be missed.   Robert Ridgeway, Curator Sanfilippo Collection
