  2. My proposition isn't as the french neoclassic organs but is in the tradition of Dalstein-Hærpfer (Boulay) between 1863 and 1914. This sort of organ is in the middle of Walcker and Cavaillé-Coll (Johann Karl Hærpfer was Walcker's student and met Dalstein when Cavaillé-Coll was at the construction of Saint-Sulpice in Paris). If you see my stoplist, you can find elements of french symphonic organ (harmonic flutes, french trumpet, harmonic progression as carillon I-III, details reed), and elements of german orgnbuilding (kegelladen, conical stops like gemshorn, terz-mixtur like the fourniture
  3. Some proposal here view like neo-classic french organs from the 60-70s... My version (in the langage between french and german, like in my country of east from France). I) Grand-Orgue (56) 01.

  4. Add a fourth keyboard on an authentic Mutin-Cavaillé-Coll of 1903, inaugurated by Widor? Are you crazy? These week-end I will play these organ with the fourth symphony of Louis Vierne in concert. You can believe me : there's nothing to add at this very beautifull organ!
  5. In 1868 Notre-Dame of Paris was an instrument for improvisation, it was impossible to play some organ pages because all keyboards had just copula on Grand-orgue (I/II, III/II, IV/II, V/II) and just "Grand-orgue/pédale" and "Grand-choeur/pédale (I/P, II/P). How play Franck or Vierne without more accessories? That's why Vierne an Cochereau have modified this organ which was an intellectual instrument into a music instrument. Sorry for my english...
  6. Happily in France organs are protected by commissions. Otherwise all those which are not to the taste of certain persons (Notre-Dame of Paris, Saint-Sulpice, Saint-Ouen of Rouen, Saint-Sernin of Toulouse, etc) would leave to the garbage can. To destroy his heritage it is to kill History.
  7. In french I would say : "mais euh..." (buuuut...). Many great organs have electronic combinations, it's like machintosh... just one button on the mouse... you don't have to use manual stops when you play. Just "+1".
  8. You can see the console of Evreux. Do you think that's horrible?
  9. I find this console isn't very beautyfull... If you can see the old Cavaillé-Coll's console at the Museeum... that's a really monument! French organbuilders? Who? I agree when you see the Aubertin's consoles with very short unconfortable keyboards (I have big hands and I can play C-g on this sort of keyboards...). Cavaillé-Coll or Puget made very pratical consoles, the same for Dalstein-Haerpfer. For neobaroc instruments, the Alfred Kern organs are like Bentley or Rolls Royce for car. After... it's thru, that's maybe very difficult.
  10. I've just a word about these organbuilder for the reconstruction of the Moucherel-organ of Albi : FFfzzFfFFFFffZzzZfFFFfFFFZzZZzzzFFffFFffFormentelli
  11. Hello everybody, I'm a new logged forumist of France. To beginn I scuse me for my very bad english, but I can't speak better french... or german... Don't fight on my head please... Sad you can't go in north-est of France (Lorraine). You could see very particular organs between Cavaillé-Coll and Walcker. The most importants organbuilders of the 19th century in these country are Dalstein&Haerpfer, Bartholomaei-Blési, Sauvage... You can see my Bartholomaei-Blési organ HERE.
