(back) Subject: Jacksonville Beach with Felix, Part 1 From: "Glenda" <gksjd85@direcway.com> Date: Wed, 5 Mar 2003 20:37:00 -0600   Pre-Spring Break in Jacksonville Beach with Felix February 16, 2003   Part 1 of 2   The weekend following Valentine's Day was a mild one temperature-wise in Florida as I headed out to Jacksonville Beach, with Rick by my side. The goal: to hear Felix Hell play again, this time at Palms Presbyterian Church. Rick had never heard Felix, and stated he had not been to Jacksonville Beach since he was in high school band. He remembered eating a chocolate-covered frozen banana on a stick at the beach. So I made reservations for a hotel on the ocean, replete with ocean- and pool-view balcony (but sadly sans chocolate bananas on a stick).   This was a very quick trip, with both of us up to our necks at work - all day Friday was spent in very nasty depositions. We left on Saturday morning for the 5+ hour drive, and managed to get annual leave on Monday for the return trip. Inasmuch as Rick was limping badly from a reinjured knee and was sporting a cane, I did all the driving and most of the luggage-toting. The weather was dreary during the trip over, but the sun shone for us as we made it to our hotel. Hans called me shortly after our arrival, and we made plans to meet at church the next morning and do lunch together.   The morning dawned misty, foggy and rainy. If I had been alone, I would have found St. Mark's Episcopal Church for principal service, but because the sole purpose was to hear and visit with Felix and his father, and because Rick is not a liturgically-inclined guy, we opted for the service at Palms Presbyterian with the Hells.   The church was recently built, in a pretty "fat cross" (my term) fashion, with high ceilings. The organ case is divided and placed bilaterally behind the choir in the front flanking a window and cross. The church service was very modern, with both male and female dueling ministers. Rick stated that although he enjoyed just being back in church and worshipping, it felt like the 6:00 news or the weather channel, with the two passing the service back and forth. There were three different offerings: even the children had to bring money to the front for the children's "sermon". We felt sufficiently fleeced by the time the service was concluded. We also heard very little of the organ.   Felix played the postlude, for which the congregation was asked to sit. He chose the final movement of the Mendelssohn Sonata I, played faster than I've ever heard it. Rick and I heard several compliments by members as they were leaving. One turned to me (because Hans and Felix sat with us during the service) and asked if I was Felix' mother. I admitted that I was not, but I truly was as proud of him as any mother could be (secretly resolving that maybe the gray needed some tinting).   I was surprised to find that the organ was only two manuals and about 19 ranks, a Casavant about 6 years old. As with my trip to Orlando, I was unable to obtain a stoplist, and none was provided at the church or with the recital program. I had assumed that the instrument was larger. However, it was a golden opportunity to see what Felix could do on a smaller instrument.   After church and Felix' enthusiastic reception, we were finally able to whisk Felix and Hans away for a fine luncheon. We enjoyed a gorgeous view of the rain-drenched ocean while eating dead fish. Making conversation with Felix and his father was as ever delightfully easy, and we discussed many topics and people, the organ world of course figuring prominently. We also discussed history, world civilization, Felix' course work (23 semester hours at one time, oh my!), Harley-Davidsons, and a host of other subjects. Our couple of hours together just flew.   We dropped Felix and Hans off at the church for him to complete his last-minute preparations, and made it through the rain to our hotel. Because of the inclement weather's preventing our negotiating a walk on the beach, we watched Tiger Woods on television while the maintenance man was exorcising aliens from the toilet in our bathroom.   The great moment finally drew near, and we betook ourselves to the church, Rick choosing a spot for us in the "nave" so that he could watch Felix. The Jacksonville AGO chapter co-sponsored this event, and had arranged for a screen so that Felix' likeness could be projected for everyone to watch his hands and feet. While I am a believer in going to concerts to hear and not to see, this feature was a fabulous tool, holding the audience of about 250 persons, including me, spellbound through the 2-hour event.   The program was:   Prelude in E major - Lubeck O Mensch, bewein dein Suende gross - Bach Prelude and Fugue in E minor (Wedge) - Bach Trio Sonata No. 1 in E flat major - Bach Prelude and Fugue in D major - Bach   Intermission   Chorale No. 3 in A minor - Franck Abendefriede (that doesn't look right - "Evening") - Rheinberger Sonata No. 3 in A - Mendelssohn Adagio (Consolation No. 4) - Liszt Prelude and Fugue on B-A-C-H - Liszt   Encores:   Finale from Symphony I - Vierne Toccata from Fifth Symphony - Widor   This was a daunting program for anyone - I could not imagine one attempting all this in one night. But Felix did it.   The Lubeck was as far as I could tell flawless, crisp, clean, and lively, truly bewitching. It was a great beginning, and pleased the crowd. Then it was on to the Bach. Felix is the one who taught me to pay attention to "O man, bewail", and to come to love it. He played it very expressively and lovingly. He broke ever so slightly just prior to trills, and paid close attention to phrasing in a pleasing fashion. One thing that I noticed was that he reversed an old rule taught me years ago, by speeding up slightly when the scale ascended, and slowing down when it descended. In this piece, however, the literary side of me always thought of the particular phrasings in measures 20 through the end of the piece as representing the tension leading to the climactic release at the "top", or perhaps rather the denouement. I would have slowed slightly to emphasize the wonderful chromaticism Bach chose. But that's just my own idiotic uninformed view. Anyway, this was Felix at near best.   His best that night was actually the Trio Sonata. One could not have asked for a more flawless performance here, with judicious use of the stops of this small instrument. After that I would have lied to Hans himself and announced to all that I was Felix' mom - my heart was bursting with pride. I have never heard it played better.   The Wedge, as always, is an interesting study, and my favorite piece to hear (there is not enough time in my lifetime to learn it myself). When I told Hans I was coming to Jacksonville Beach, his response was, "The Wedge is guaranteed!" My favorite performers of this have included Richard Morris and our own Stephen Roberts. This prelude and fugue alone could make or break any recital. Felix did a fine job, keeping the line from slipping into legato. He took the prelude at a nice pace, more sedate and sensible than the usual road-runner race one is prone to hear from those who have learned it and dash it off as some irrelevant trophy piece. Felix confirmed that there is nothing irrelevant, technically or otherwise, about this piece - it is a true test of musicianship; one must do a lot more than play the right notes at the right time, a daunting task all by itself. Felix also carefully chose the registration to complement the many voices dancing through. A very real danger is keeping the cadences crisp and clean while rolling off all those fast notes in the fugue (you know - those sixteenth notes that sound like thirty-second notes) and constantly switching back and forth on the manuals. Felix managed to acquit himself well, and received a standing ovation.   A digression here - have you noticed how any amateur can tell whether the performer really knows and loves the piece, as opposed to just playing it to impress? Guess my teacher was right. It was apparent that Felix has been going steady with this piece - I hope it wins a regular slot in his repertoire, despite its length, and he grows to love it. A regular in his repertoire, and one he has played at every recital that I've attended, is the D major. This piece Felix must be able to toss off in his sleep; he knows every curve and line, and it was a dramatic whirl, performed as well as anyone has performed it, and to an ecstatic crowd.   Description of the second half will resume in Part 2.   Glenda Sutton gksjd85@direcway.com

Since I am in meetings all the time in connection = with my day job, I have grown to loathe the genre soundly, and the last thing = in the world I'd ever do on my own time is attend a meeting! I am personally acquainted with some of the chapter's members -- Margaret Budd, Henry = Lowe, Dan Fortune, Warren Glock, and Paul Swank, to name a few. I feel quite certain you are right that we've never met; I'm sure I'd remember you if = we had.   You are a brave man, indeed, to be heading off to Paris just now. We Americans aren't the most popular people in the world with the French = these days. I hope, for your sake, that you're safely back home before Mr. Bush decides to push the button.   Bon voyage!   Dave

The Moller console would have to be upated to make it compatible for solid state...........   Just felt we could solve two problems with one organ.   -Daryl Robinson   ----- Original Message ----- From: <Cremona502@cs.com> To: <pipechat@pipechat.org> Sent: Thursday, March 06, 2003 12:13 AM Subject: Re: Organ Specs.     > In a message dated 3/5/03 9:30:11 PM Eastern Standard Time, > drobinson@houston.rr.com writes: > > > The church I work at has been working on an organ project for several years > now and things are finally really coming together. > > Does your church have a name? > > We bought a 1985 82 rank pipe organ from another church for $100,000.
