(back) Subject: Aaron David Miller: Grace Lutheran, Lancaster PA - this afternoon From: "Karl Moyer" <kmoyer@marauder.millersville.edu> Date: Sun, 06 Feb 2005 21:38:11 -0500   Aaron David Miller played this Super Bowl afternoon to a "crowd" of about 125 people in a building that seats about 400. We were disappointed with the "crowd," but as to Miller's playing, it was splendid -- SPLENDID - SPLENDID!!!! May goodness, he plays well.   Toccata: Eugene Gigout - no big deal, but a great opener and played very well   Toccata and Fugue in F, BWV 540 Johann Sebastian Bach For the first time IN MY LIFE I heard the fugue after the toccata and LIKED IT! He = plays the fugue in very interesting manner, yet without doing anything "silly" = or the like. Nor did he make the toccata "too interesting," to to suggest, though, that it was boring. And it was all CLEAN as a whistle!! I take = my hat off to him!   Three Character Pieces, Op. 59 Max Reger I. Toccata II. Adagio III. Scherzo   So good to hear these pieces. The Schlicker at Grace was somewhat "un-Schlickerized" several years ago in the manner that the much larger = one at Valparaiso was more extensively un-Schlickerized, and while it did not sound like the Wilhelm Sauer at the back of Thomaskirche in Leipzig, it = was a good match for the music. Miller has a good handle on these works, and they made fine listening, thanks to his care with them. Carillon de Westminster, Op. 54 Louis Vierne - just wonderful! Not big deal, nothing silly or "catching," just plain good playing. INTERMISSION Improvised Organ Symphony: he based it on hymns we sang this morning for Transfiguration Sunday: I. Perpetual Motion -- on "I Want to Walk As a Child of the Light," = and it became quite a fast-paced walk II. Adagio -- on Beautiful Savior III. Scherzo -- on "Potsdam" ("Tis Good, Lord, To Be Here") IV. Finale - Toccata -- on "Lauda Anima   Miller's improvisation struck me as somewhere between the Paul Manz tradition and the French tradition. Everyone enjoyed it thoroughly, and = I'd wish for him to do it again, if I knew in advance what he would do.   In addition, this is the nicest guy you'll ever meet!! (Well, second only to me.) [What conceit!!!!!! :-( ] He spoke to the audience at several points in a most engaging way, never sill or "attractive" but genuine, friendly, and in love with what he was doing. He was that way at the informal supper that followed, and people LOVED HIM!! The result: he surely created an aura about organ recitals that will encourage many folks to return for another one.   We are more than pleased about Miller's program this afternoon. And = as I told him, Mr. Craighead would have been very, very proud to have heard him.   Alles gute.   Karl E. Moyer Lancaster PA    
(back) Subject: Aaron David Miller: Grace Lutheran, Lancaster PA From: "Malcolm Wechsler \(Mander Organs\)" <manderusa@earthlink.net> Date: Mon, 7 Feb 2005 00:19:45 -0500   Dear Listpersons,   I have heard Aaron David Miller, and in response to Karl's and also Roger Evans's expressed concern about the relatively small numbers attending (125), I should explain what it was that got me to make the fairly long = and complex journey from where I live in Connecticut, down to New York, and = then back out on Long Island to Garden City. What attracted my interest first = was hearing Marvin Mills play a published work of Aaron Miller's in a concert = at St. Agnes R.C. Church in Manhattan. I wish I could now recall the name of the work - I know where to find it, but a big Saturday funeral and then = the drive again to the church and back today have left me with too little = energy to chase it up. It was Organ music of a sort that made me want meet the composer and also to hear him play. I was next made eager to hear Mr. = Miller by one of Penny Lorenz's enthusiastic postings in advance of a recital in the Cathedral of the Incarnation in Garden City. Off I went that day, and was completely glad to have done so. Not only was the playing (and programming) of a very high order, but there was also, as in Lancaster, an =   improvised symphony, this time using a long time favorite hymn tune, = King's Lynn.   I don't know what was done in Lancaster, but I do believe that the amount and nature of advertising has lots to do with gathering a crowd. It has to =   be confident advertising, that says we are presenting something very special, rather than something almost apologetic, which describes some promotional material I have seen for Organ recitals. If you can persuade them, an interview with photograph in the local newspaper widens the = numbers reached and possibly impressed enough to get up and out. Perhaps all of = this was done, and still yielded the 125. One can hope then that word of mouth will bring people in for other recitals down the road. Also, perhaps some new creative publicity ideas will be organized, there will be no Super = Bowl, and a large audience will attend.   Cheers,   Malcolm Wechsler www.mander-organs.com   ----- Original Message ----- From: "Karl Moyer" <kmoyer@MARAUDER.MILLERSVILLE.EDU> To: <PIPORG-L@listserv.albany.edu> Sent: Sunday, February 06, 2005 9:38 PM Subject: Aaron David Miller: Grace Lutheran, Lancaster PA - this afternoon     > Aaron David Miller played this Super Bowl afternoon to a "crowd" of = about > 125 people in a building that seats about 400.

It is attributed to Joseph Whiteford playing.   Cheers, Mack   Michael David wrote:   > JAV re-issued both volume 1 and an earlier "Studies in Tone" album on > CD.
