Quote from: lordlance on April 15, 2023, 12:31:16 PMAny recommendations for organ Concertos and symphonies that are generally more grandiose in sound?

Quote from: DavidW on April 15, 2023, 01:39:51 PMCopland and Saint Saens immediately come to mind.
Quote from: Mandryka on April 15, 2023, 11:47:08 PMIt's not quite what you had in mind @lordlance but have you tried the symphonies for solo organ by Vierne and Widor? With a Cavaillé Coll organ you really don't need an orchestra to write a symphony - the point of the machine is to be a keyboard orchestra! I remember as a child hearing a Widor solo organ symphony on the wireless and not being able to believe my ears, because of the harmonies and the timbres! The organ part in the later Widor symphonies for orchestra and organ is nice enough too - his symphony sacra. Just spoilt by the conventional orchestral writing for me. By the way, isn't it strange that there's nothing in this genre by Liszt? Or Brahms? My own feeling is that Cavaillé Coll made France the organ symphony capital of the universe!
Quote from: lordlance on April 18, 2023, 06:58:53 AMIs the reason why organ music used to be much more commonly written for during baroque related to church music being more important back then?
Quote from: Dry Brett Kavanaugh on April 28, 2023, 05:57:36 PMVierne - Keiko Nakata. I don't know what she's trying to do. Also I heard that she released a Bach organ album, but can't find it.

Quote from: Mandryka on May 06, 2023, 12:19:39 AMThis one has really caught my attention! Does anyone have his recording of the Bach trio sonatas?
Quote from: Harry on May 06, 2023, 12:26:04 AMHave it.
Quote from: premont on May 06, 2023, 03:04:03 AMWhat do you think of it? I don't have it, but what I have with him (Bach Inventions, Fischer Ariadne Musica among others) strikes me as being somewhat colorless.
