(back) Subject: Christian Schmitt's Oslo recital From: "Jarle Fagerheim" <jarle_fagerheim@yahoo.co.uk> Date: Sat, 09 Oct 2004 14:54:07 +0200   Dear Lists,   First I'd like to thank you for the very positive responses I've got to my review. They encourage and inspire me to write more in the time to = come!   Another error managed to sneak into my review, in addition to Schlee being renamed Schnee. Christian Schmitt was born in 1976, not 1978. A corrected version can be found at my homepage, http://jarle.moo.no (in the "Articles" section).   Organist K=E5re Nordstoga has made several excellent recordings on the two =   Ryde & Berg organs of Oslo Cathedral. http://www.afontibus.no for details. Nordstoga is a fabulous player, and I also recommend his recording of Widor at the Cavaille-Coll in Caen.   - Jarle

I will have to continue searching for such a list. However, before I sign off this list, =   here are a few items that may be of interest to list members.   http://www.folklib.net/fcc/opus_469.shtml 1911 Casavant Freres Organ, Opus 469 in our First Congregational Church (FCC), Oshkosh, WI - specifications and pictures of the organ and the = 1911, 1959 and 1986 consoles it has had.   http://www.folklib.net/fcc/#Casavant Links to all of the other sites I have found with information about, or pictures of, some of the 49 Casavant organs built in Wisconsin.   http://www.folklib.net/fcc/fcc_music_history.shtml A list of the FCC current and past choir directors and organists.   http://www.folklib.net/index/wis_organ.shtml Links for Wisconsin Solo Organists, those who have released at least one solo instrumental album in any style of music.

(back) Subject: Re: RE: Organs at closed Boston Parishes From: "rgunther@cantv.net" <rgunther@cantv.net> Date: Sat, 9 Oct 2004 10:47:06 -0400   Closing of RC parishes is nationwide in the USA as we were informed at = the sermon in Little Flower RCC in Hollywood [FL, NOT CA, <G>]. I find that so sad, and R/catholics are very concerned. To the other side, when I see the vast diversity of churches here who accept people from = every christian denomination to communion (the RC church law doesn't allow that) vs. the long distances here and the population shift in big cities, = therein lies a major cause for that problem. The other major cause is the lack of RC priests.   As for the organs, it will be necessary to sift out which ones are worthwile to save (quality - current condition - Historical interest & value), a tough but worthwile job for OHS and OCH I venture to think.   Hoping the best for the future, Andres (Co-restoring a hurricane damaged Schlicker!)     ----------- Mensaje Original --------------   De: Sam Vause [vause@cox.net] Para: PipeChat [pipechat@pipechat.org] Cc: Asunto: RE: Organs at closed Boston Parishes Fecha: 09/10/2004 00:28:44 Mensaje:   Tucson, AZ diocese filed bankruptcy; this might make some instruments available there, too. --sam Sam Vause, Chandler, AZ

And I=B9ll bet there will be more of the same. You MAY want to stick around.   Alan

(back) Subject: Re: Mendelssohn Sonata No. 5 - warning - stupid question From: "Brent Johnson" <brentmj@charter.net> Date: Sat, 09 Oct 2004 12:49:16 -0500   I dug this morning looking for some research I did on the Mendelssohn Sonatas for confirmation, but wasn't able to find it. That was multiple hard drive crashes ago.   As I remember, the chorales found in the 5th and 6th Sonatas are composed by Mendelssohn.. The chorale melody found in the 3rd Sonata is an old chorale, but my memory fades on the title. I'm sure someone else can fill that blank in.   Brent Johnson ORGANLive - Music of the organ on demand http://www.organlive.com   BlueeyedBear@aol.com wrote:   > In a message dated 10/9/04 8:54:44 AM Pacific Daylight Time, > gksjd85@direcway.com writes: > >> Is the beginning 'chorale' an actual hymn? > > > > if it is, i don't recognize it. > > HOWEVER, if you look at his second sonata, first movement, the allegro > maestoso vivace section certainly does sound like "Jesus Saves"... > > (i didn't know felix was southern baptist!)      
(back) Subject: Re: Wisconsin Organists From: "jch" <opus1100@catoe.org> Date: Sat, 09 Oct 2004 15:30:17 -0500   A better resource for concert information would be the Milwaukee Chapter website of the American Guild of Organists, listed below: http://www.agomilwaukee.org/   There quite a few concerts listings on their page going into 2005. If = there is a local chapter of the Organ Historical Society they would also be a good resource. I could not find a chapter listing for Wisconsin so they must not have a website. You can find more about the Organ Historical =   Society from their website: http://www.organsociety.org/   I am assuming from your post that you are primarily interested in = classical organ, however if you might possibly be interested in theatre organ there are 3 chapters of the American Theatre Organ Society in Wisconsin/ You can find information about their websites at http://www.atos.org. If you want to hear an interesting organ and you like pizza there is a terrific installation just outside of Milwaukee in the Organ Piper Music Palace in Greenfield, Wi. I can vouch for the fact that unlike many pipe organ pizza =   venues, the food is very good. There are often pipe organ accompanied silent films presented in Milwaukee and Madison...the Kimball Organ = Society jhas a fine theatre pipe organ installation in the Oriental Theatre in Milwaukee. I suspect you are a Casavant devotee, I am too, one of my first =   pipe organ experiences was lessons on the church 3/32 Casavant on the southside of Chicago....I has already been introduced to a Wurlitzer style =   D several years earlier, so I was hooked on both Bach and Crawford. In the =   Chicago area the ATOS chapter maintains a calendar of pipe organ events, (both theatre and classical) and occasionally a Wisconsin event will = appear on it if the program is with in comfortable driving range of Chicago http://www.catoe.org/calendar.html   Hope this helps,   regards,   Jon   At 08:45 AM 10/9/2004, you wrote: > I don't play any instrument, but I joined PipeChat thinking that it =   > would have regular postings about all Wisconsin organ recitals and > announcements of new recordings by Wisconsin organists.

I got it out, and that is indeed "Vater unser" that he bases the entire sonata on.
