From: "Randolph Runyon" <runyonr@muohio.edu> Date: Sun, 08 Aug 2004 21:23:49 -0400   There is something unutterably peaceful about some of the quieter Rheinberger pieces, like this one and the trios (and some of the slow movements from the sonatas). It's almost like entering a trance. I get that feeling from no other composer.     Randy Runyon Music Director Zion Lutheran Church Hamilton, Ohio runyonr@muohio.edu       on 8/8/04 9:10 PM, Innkawgneeto@cs.com at Innkawgneeto@cs.com wrote:     Offertory: Allegretto, from Monologe Josef Rheinberger     Ahhhhh... someone else that is not afraid to play Rheinberger.   Today I just played improvisations for my service music, because we are in the parish hall which IS air conditioned (the church itself is not).

They get embarrassed into silence when the sudden soft passages after those in which full organ is called for catch them yelling at the top of their lungs. By the time the prelude was over, you could hear a pin drop. Another good piece for that effect is probably Rheinberger's "Vision." Any more suggestions for that quite useful genre?   I bet someone will want to take me to task for having the wrong attitude ;-)

(back) Subject: Baldwin "Wave-Form" in Cincinatti From: "Charlie Lester" <crl@137.com> Date: Sun, 08 Aug 2004 19:33:48 -0700   (Actually "Multi-Waveform Organ")   Was it really awful? I never heard it but remember the ads in "Music/AGO" when it went in and all the accolades Searle Wright heaped upon it.   From what I recall, it was basically a big elaborate Optigan, right? Giant glass platters with "waveforms" etched on them that were read by a beam of light and interpreted somehow into audio?   Always wanted to see one of the contraptions. Wonder if there are still any left anywhere.   ~ C

What I really want to know is who among us may have succumbed to temptation to play "Superfreak".   ;-)   -WG   P.S.: I'm spending the week in NYC... What should I absolutely not miss?
