(C:   I've been kicking around the idea of figuring out how to "adopt" a chamber down in Atlantic City. I am so sick of hearing that the organ is doomed and this and that. Personally, I'd like to make some positive news for the beastie at last. So. There you have it.   = -Nate   "The Cranky in the Morning Apprentice"

They become a more attractive choice than artificially generated = instruments as their resources increase, as the price per rank drops. Why? There is an "additive constant" of the basic infrastructure. Whether = two ranks or seven, the client-musician must still invest in the keydesk, = blower, reservoir, power supply, building frame, and case, among the other = necessary components. This figure is essentially divided up between the number of = ranks, so that the aggregate investment per rank drops as the instrument = enlarges.   Sebastian M. Gluck New York City

Your message was the 4th today and there were only 3 yesterday. That's a dramatic change from the past several weeks for sure.

Below is the URL = with a couple of pictures and the stop list.   http://www.novaago.org/1feature.htm   As far as I know, this organ is the Opus Finalem of the Schlicker Organ company. I, for one, am very happy that the organ finally is playing and = am happy to report that it sounds really nice! :) It's part rebuild and = part new pipework. Hat's off to Stan Petersen for the wonderful work he did on =   installation and voicing.   The dedicatory recital, I think, will be in November.   Cheers, TommyLee

(back) Subject: Emanuele Cardi in Lancaster - report From: "Karl Moyer" <kmoyer@marauder.millersville.edu> Date: Sun, 05 Oct 2003 20:53:40 -0400   Emanuele Cardi of Battipaglia, Italy, played a splendid program this afternoon at Grace Lutheran Church, Lancaster. With what seemed like rathe= r little time at the organ, he seemed to have the 3/54 Schlicker with revised Great manual under fine control. Indeed, the swelling of tone at various points in Widor Symph 8 was more than convincing. The piece is HARD, and h= e seemed in fine control of its intricacies.   Mendelssohn Sonata 4 in B Flat was fine, too, and he solved the problem many organists don't solve in Mendelssohn, i.e., of enabling the listener t= o hear the melodic line clearly when it extends upwards into the 5th octave o= f the manual. Cavaille-Coll, Wilhelm Walcker, Christopher Sauer, etc., are usually pretty clear up there; American organs generally are not. But with registration and with articulation Cardi got it done quite well. It was on= e of numerous indications that he really LISTEENS to what he's doing.   His Mozart K 594 Adagio-allegro-adagio Fantaise was outstanding. What an innocent-sounding but treacherous piece!! It would have been worth goin= g just to hear that performance alone!   Bach pre & fug in G, BWV 5451, opened the program with clean, clear lines and fine phrasing. I might have preferred certain cadence points to be "stretched" just a bit more, but Cardi was will within the "standard" wa= y of playing the piece. Two Sch=FCbler chorales were immaculately played.   Cardi is somewhat of an unknown, at least in central PA, but I would surely go out of my way to hear him again, where that possible.   Cordially,   Karl E. Moyer Lancaster PA
