Cavaillé-Cool Posted February 3, 2009 Share Posted February 3, 2009 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 of grand-orgue, flûte majeur — no harmonic, two mouth opposed, salicional 16). I think this sort of instruments are the better to play great pieces of Liszt and other german composers. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
