Quote from: André Le Nôtre on January 16, 2022, 07:22:55 PMI would be interested in recommendations of recordings in which the organ is used as an accompanying instrument, or an instrument as part of a small ensemble (not really interested in organ + brass stuff). I have two recordings of the Vitali Chaconne--one with a wonderful accompaniment by the organ and played by Ricardo Odnoposoff (who I generally like--but Gioconda de Vito is by far my favorite here). Anything in which the organ substitutes for the usual piano would also be of interest!
Quote from: André Le Nôtre on January 16, 2022, 08:48:11 PMThanks, these look interesting. I'm listening to the first one now. The Sibelius is interesting!
Quote from: Don on February 24, 2008, 07:13:53 PMThe best Bruhns organ disc I know isn't all Bruhns - also has a few pieces of Hanff that are exceptional. The disc is Loft Recordings 1012 and performed by William Porter on the Cathedral Organ at Roskilde; the organ was originally built in 1554 and sounds fantastic. One of my treasured organ discs, and that includes Bach. BUT, it might not be easy to find.
Quote from: Mandryka on February 28, 2022, 11:56:19 PMListening to this, possibly for the first time, and possibly the first time that I've paid attention to Hanff, I have to agree with Don's assessment. Porter makes everything he touches - Burns, Hanff, Scheidemann - sound more luxurious than fantastical. (that's not totally fair as the penultimate part of the Bruhns Nunn komm der heiden heiland starts up!)

Quote from: Mandryka on March 03, 2022, 12:49:31 AMTitelouze Magnificat (1st tone) with chant, Tuma at the keyboard, unusually prayerful and rapt. 18th century organ, restored, some sort of meantone tuning. I think it is the same organ as the one he used for the Biber sonatas. This is potentially an interesting release.
Quote from: Selig on February 28, 2022, 06:07:09 AMOr does Gary Verkade wipe the floor with Berben?
Quote from: Mandryka on March 01, 2022, 08:43:41 AMNo, not in my opinion. For me it's a case of different perspectives. Verkade only plays the ricercars, as you know probably .
Quote from: Mandryka on March 08, 2022, 02:42:51 AMOne key one to check is Ricercar 8. Berben tunes it down a tone to avoid harsh intervals on the meantone Luedingworth organ, he uses evidence from fretted clavichords of the period to justify this practice. I don't believe that Verklade tunes it down, he seems to positively relish the dissonance by playing it slowly.
Quote from: bioluminescentsquid on March 09, 2022, 10:54:47 AMI think the difference is that the organ that Verklade is playing on has split sharps, allowing him to play more "correct" intervals.
Quote from: bioluminescentsquid on March 09, 2022, 05:56:18 PMGary Verkade recorded the Steigleder on the Grönlunds organ in Norrfjärden, a faithful reconstruction of the 17th century organ from the German church in Stockholm which still survives today, albeit modified and split up between 2 churches. Notice how the D#/Eflat is split into 2, allowing you to use the "correct" note. Somehow I thought this organ had more of these split sharps for different notes. I haven't listened to the ricercar in question, not sure if this single split sharp would be of that much help.
