Quote from: Mandryka on February 07, 2023, 12:18:11 AMWeir makes big claims for this set of a dozen fugues, a sort of French AoF she says - and maybe she's got a point if we restrict things to the first published AoF. She slows things down, which reduces the feeling of the Italian style, and gives the music a special nobility. I think that was a good decision. The organ at Thionville, early 18th century, imported to Thionville from Metz, is fine and is well recorded. It is a powerful and sensual organ. Weir's registrations are restrained, not at all symphonic, the overall feeling is of serious music. Sensual gravity. I think this is one of the great recordings of French organ music, and I think Roberday is probably a great composer of organ music. https://www.musiqueorguequebec.ca/orgues/france/thionvillesm.html
Quote from: premont on February 08, 2023, 12:47:44 AMYour mention of the Kern orgel in Thionville made me think that Weir re-recorded the Roberday fugues, but I have not been able to find a new recording by her on that organ, and according to Presto this (according to the picture you have posted) is actually her old recording (Argo 1974 recently re-released by Eloquence) on the modern Kuhn organ of St. Leonhardt Basel. Once I owned it on LP.https://www.prestomusic.com/classical/products/9248437--gillian-weir-a-celebration-vol-7-roberdayhttps://orgel-basel.ch/de/orgeln/st-leonhard
Quote from: Mandryka on February 08, 2023, 01:29:37 AMOh! I said it jumped to the conclusion it was at Thionville was because of the listing on France Orgue -- is it just a mistake?
Quote from: Mandryka on February 08, 2023, 01:29:37 AMI still think it's a great recording.
Quote from: premont on February 08, 2023, 01:47:14 AMYes a mistake. It's evidently the Basel recording. France-orgue isn't always correct. I'm not sure that I have uploaded the Claude Terasse recording on the Sarlat organ of five of the pieces to you? And have you heard Isoir's recording or Eric Brottier's?
Quote from: Mandryka on February 08, 2023, 03:14:23 AMpartly because of the gravitas she brings to the music.
Quote from: Mandryka on February 08, 2023, 09:43:25 AMI'd be really surprised if you didn't enjoy it @premont -- it's been a constant source of pleasure for me for many years now. But this may be a way for you to check before taking the plungehttps://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=weir+roberday+

Quote from: Mandryka on February 12, 2023, 01:45:27 AMDoes anyone know if Johan Caspar Ferdinand Fischer's Ariadne Musica is only doable on organ, or can it be played on a harpsichord like WTC? Anyway, listening now for the first time to Schoonbroodt's recording of the whole caboodle, though I've heard one or two excerpts played by Leonhardt. Bach, it is not, and I'm not sure I'll be able to get past F minor. Leonhardt made the music sound more interesting I think.
Quote from: premont on February 12, 2023, 01:58:10 AMPedal is prescribed in many of the pieces. But except this there is no reason why the work couldn't be played on a pedal harpsichord, as the many long organ points in the pedal may be re-percussed on harpsichord.
