I'd said it before and I reiterate it now: afaIc, no melody, no music. I guess I should really stick with Late Baroque, Classical and Romantic --- and that's where I actually do stick ;D

Yes but let's get back to Sweelinck, because I bet that one reason that XB-70 could enjoy his stuff is that in some things sweet melody is the hook, same with Peter Philips, less so with Byrd. I think you should listen to some Sweelinck and Philips when you're next in the mood.

By all means, sorry for the disruption!

Funny, because, when organ music is played in a church with large acoustics and more reverb, I prefer a faster tempo with apt phrasing and not that much legato, to give the reverb a lesser chance to make the sound diffuse.
So far, this has been my listening experience, both in live concerts and at my 'hifi' home. Hence I did not have any problems with this specific recording.

The Ricercar is indeed a great piece... I should listen to JPS more often. ;)

Btw, so far I have not checked Schoonbroodt's own website, because, according to my (Norton) internet safety control, his site is 'probably hacked'. :blank:

I listened today to Schoonbroodt playing the A minor ricercar SwVW 280. It is fabulous really, really off the rails, like it's going to explode with intense energy. . And as if to confound us all, he takes longer than anyone else I know - though it still appears fast. It just is such exciting and committed playing it's irrsistable. It's incredible how sometimes these ricercars - which are just basically imitation really - can sometimes take off like that, I mean you wouldn't think that 12 minutes of imitation could sound so wild.

Wow, that looks like an excellent deal. I can't say I know anything about Sweelinck, but I have been meaning to check out his music for some time. I'll be considering this as a point of entry.

I remember a discussion here a few years ago with Premont, Marc and me where I said much the same sort of thing about Italian keyboard music, renaissance and baroque for me, though I've always been able to appreciate Frescobaldi. Here's my latest infatuation in Italian music though, the Storace Patoralle, which seems to me to anticipate Steve Reich

Sorry, what is Storace Patoralle?

Happy Sweelinck 400th death day everyone!

Such an amazing composer that I discovered rather late. And from the Netherlands... 8)

Luckily the celebratory Sweelinck Edition (Glossa) does him full justice.
