  1. My apologies I should have also asked for opinions regarding really good headphone for listening to load organ music. Thanks notanorganist
  2. My apologies if this is completely off topic. For several months now I have been exploring Youtube which has some 300 plus video recordings of a young player from Holland. gert van hoef In view of the fact that this young man only started to play the piano when he was 13 years old. He seems to be making quite a name for himself Lots of his early recordings were made on Electronic instruments, however , his online recordings indicate that he is becoming quite a player . Not being an organist myself, I'd be interested to hear any positive / constructive comment. I Many thanks notanorganist
