MusingMuso Posted November 20, 2007 Share Posted November 20, 2007 Sorry about this, but I can't recall who wanted to hear the untuned sound of the Polish Cymbals. I've been slowly searching my sound files, and I came across it, as well as the link to a fascinating Polish organ website about the organs (3 of them I believe - all originally baroque) in the historic church at Leżajsku. I have posted this link before, to a remarkable improvisation by Prof.Julian J.Gembalskiego....in Polish, that's "improwizacje" (a word of Polish you now know!) .....which lasts a good 20 mins. The sound of the Cymbal is heard quite early on; possibly within two or three of minutes of the start, and is then used as a solo combination. The whole site is quite remarkable, but don't let the Polish language put you off.......it's worth working at! The pretty pictures show, among other things, the incredibly ornate and richly decorated church and organ-case. I think you will also note, from the console photographs, that these organs are not in the best of condition, and seem to be staggering along with the (German?) pneumatic systems from the last time that they were re-built many years ago. The link is:- http://www.lezajsk.bernardyni.ofm.pl/organy_remont.htm The improvisation is right at the bottom of the lead page, with the appropriate link on which to click to hear the piece.
