Pasi And Fritts In The Media

This week's Pipedreams programme features the wonderful dual-temperament Martin Pasi organ at Catholic Cathedral in Omaha, Nebraska in music from Buxheimer to Messiaen, (and Latry improvising). This organ was mentioned here a couple of weeks back. In general I can't stand the idea of the 'eclectic' organ, but when its done THIS well, I am totally seduced.

and see here for a wealth of technical info about the organ:

The new Paul Fritts organ at the Sacred Heart Cathedral in Rochester NY will be inaugurated in October, a nice slideshow of its on-going construction is here:

The case is inspired by the famous case at the Sint Jan in Den Bosch I think...

 

Happy Listening/viewing!

A podcast of the Omaha organ can be downloaded from the Pasi website with the resident organist and choir perfoming. Not all of it downloaded that well but the sounds are amazing. Everything from early to Messaien - on the strength of this I bought the Petr Eben 2 Versetti - it is just about my level as far as Eben is concerned.

PS If anyone has a copy of the Buxheimer Organ Book - more especially the Redeuntes in La and a scanner........a PM would be welcome!
