(back) Subject: J.C.H. Rinck From: "Stephen Roberts" <sroberts01@snet.net> Date: Thu, 30 Sep 2004 05:55:39 -0700 (PDT)   Dear List, I get my Pipechat postings in digest form, so if someone else has already = posted on this topic, please excuse the duplication. Hans-Friedrich Hell = was mistaken: Johann Christian Heinrich Rinck was born in 1770, twenty = years after Bach's death, so he could not possibly have studied with J.S. = Bach. He did study with J.C. Kittel, who was Bach's pupil, and became a = close friend of Kittel's as well. This is the Rinck/Bach connection, and = it is a very important one, especially for those of us in the USA. Rinck = owned a good many manuscripts from the Bach circle of composers. After = Rinck's death his library was purchased by the American hymn composer and = publisher Lowell Mason; Mason left his music library to Yale University, = where it remains to this day. The music collection of Rinck continues to = be an important source for musical research. It contains a number of very = important musical manuscripts including the Neumeister collection and some = sources for the music of Dieterich Buxtehude.

Rinck From: <BlueeyedBear@aol.com> Date: Thu, 30 Sep 2004 10:21:55 EDT   yes, that was one of my posting which got lost -- rinck studied with = kittel, who studied with bach. kittel was bach's last pupil, and supposedly, he = owned a portrait of bach. the story goes that it was hanging above his piano behind a curtain, and when a student did well in a lesson, kittel would = draw the curtain back so the student could see the portrait.   talk about dangling the carrot...

(back) Subject: Re: org & sax From: "Liquescent" <quilisma@cox.net> Date: Thu, 30 Sep 2004 12:00:26 -0700   Just about anything with a fairly slow-moving cantus firmus ... all you have to do is write out the transposition.   Check out Robert King Music at :   http://www.rkingmusic.com/   They have virtually everything for every combination of instruments, organ and piano. Many things for any C solo instrument and organ/piano would also work for saxophone.   Cheers,   Bud   BlueeyedBear@aol.com wrote:   > a friend at my church has a son who plays alto & tenor sax, > apparently very well. can anyone suggest some music for org/sax that > would be suitable for church? concert music that isn't much over 5 > or 6 minutes would also be welcome, as this congregation is most > receptive to concert repertoire. > > scot > > ****************************************************************** > "Pipe Up and Be Heard!"

It's excellent.   You might consider English horn repertoire, for which the sax player = needs only to make a one-step transposition.   Karl E.

(back) Subject: Re: org & sax From: <Keys4bach@aol.com> Date: Thu, 30 Sep 2004 16:27:03 EDT   DR. Robin Dinda wrote a great piece for alto sax and organ....a chaconne type of thing as i recall. This happened at UC/CCM in the early 80's.   his current publisher is ECS and he lives somewhere in MA or NH with his = wife and pets.   I do not know if he still has it or how it is available but it was great = fun to play and well received.   Google him and i bet you get it.   dale back and depressed deeply in Florida

(back) Subject: Disney Concert Hall Organ on the News [xposted] From: "Charlie Lester" <crl@137.com> Date: Thu, 30 Sep 2004 18:50:03 -0700   A very fine segment about the Disney Concert Hall organ aired on the local Los Angeles 5pm news (CBS) tonight.   No less than a half-dozen promos of the feature ran from 4 p.m. until the piece aired, so I hoped it would be more than the usual 30-second bit that such human-interest features often are. I was not disappointed.   The segment ran several minutes and featured Manuel Rosales (*) showing the console, voicing, and tuning; and he talked briefly about the tuning and voicing process. There were some spectacular shots of him at work and also of the interior of the organ.   ------- (* Rosales was credited as the builder of the organ; no mention of Glatter-Gotz; Frank Gehry was credited as the designer.) -------   The last minute or so featured Fred Swann at the remote console (and, yes, the newscaster did explain the two consoles), who played a brief demonstration and talked about the instrument.   After the piece ran, one co-anchor quipped, "Wow! What a gadget that thing is!" His co-anchor agreed effusively and she said with great enthusiasm, "It's REEEally something!" The anchorman closed with saying, "Gee, I'll bet even Chopsticks would sound great on it!"   They clearly were awed and impressed by the organ and announced that tonight would be its grand premier. The co-anchor said, "If you miss tonight's performance don't worry -- there will be some 20 more opportunities to hear this magnificent organ!"   It really made my heart glad to hear a PIPE ORGAN featured so prominently and favorably on a network news program!   (See http://wdch.laphil.com/tix/series_organ.cfm on the Disney Concert Hall site for more information about the special organ concert series.)
