Quote from: premont on November 22, 2009, 08:57:12 AMI own the two CDs, Bolliger has recorded in Denmark. I find him reliable and informed. Maybe not the most individual player, but as time goes by, I am beginning more and more to appreciate musicians without towering ego´s.
Quote from: Marc on November 23, 2009, 09:55:01 AMNot towering, alright. I like that statement.But a strange feller he is indeed: going to Denmark to record historical Swiss organs?
Quote from: Bulldog on November 22, 2009, 01:29:30 PMIt reminds them of the death phase.
Quote from: Marc on November 23, 2009, 01:33:30 PMThanks for mentioning him anyway.Recommended by Premont & Que: it could have been worse. I'll be watching for him, and hopefully listening to him one day.
Quote from: Que on November 23, 2009, 05:35:56 PMCorrection: I was informing after him myself! So I'm with you in the desire to hear something by him. If we are to believe the press quotes on the site, he is at least a very able organist. Mayb I'll try some of the bargain stuff on offer at jpc.
Quote from: listener on November 24, 2009, 01:03:01 AMMy long reply can wait. The computer crashed and I'll have to re-write and re-scan.but here's a link to a site with a lot of informationhttp://www.gothic-catalog.com/and this one will give you a radio program that can be accessed when you want ithttp://pipedreams.publicradio.org/Favourite organs are the Silbermann at Marmoutier, the Riepp at Ottobeuren and the Gabler at Weingarten.
Quote from: listener on November 24, 2009, 11:17:23 AMAs interesting as the repertoire for organ is the sound of the organs themselves. There are regional differences, the preferences of the builders, tunings, and the buildings they are in.Worth getting a sampling: Bach and Buxtehude on North German organs, South German organs (Riepp and Gabler), Alsace - Silbermann family (Daquin Noëls are appropriate at this time of year), the reeds of southern France ( e.g. St. Maximin-en-Provence), the horizontal trumpets of Spanish organs (Covarrubias is particularly impressive)... then there's the inoffensive quality of most British organs, the flutes of limited range of early Italian, and then....For repertoire that is sort of decadent look for Charles Ives' Variations on America and Lefebure-Wely Sorties which sound as if they were written for cinema Wurlitzers.

Quote from: Marc on November 24, 2009, 12:09:03 PM...I 'discovered' recently that I very much seem to like the Bernard Aubertin ones, played by a.o. Benjamin Alard.
Quote from: listener on November 24, 2009, 12:44:41 PMGot the hm set on CD and some on the original vinyl (kept for the notes and illustrations)I pulled this (ebs 6012) off the shelf after the last post, nice recording of the Weingarten organ with a very good annotation.
Quote from: premont on November 24, 2009, 12:31:51 PMThe Triosonatas I suppose. How does he play them?
Quote from: premontI know from elsewhere the sound of the organ he plays. A full and relative soft sound, very original, not like anything I have heard before.
Quote from: listener on November 24, 2009, 08:12:08 PMThe Chandos CD I showed in my first reply above with Piet Kee at Weingarten (CHAN 0520) includes the registrations for each piece.
Quote from: listenerNeighbors above and to the side are out this evening so I can enjoy the 32ft pedal stops.
