Mark Taylor Posted February 13, 2009 Share Posted February 13, 2009 I recently found a number of essays by Alfred Brendel downloadable from here. Okay, these essays are not about organs, but I thought this was such an interesting link that it was worth sharing here. Moreover, Brendel does touch on issues which will have a resonance with organists: Adjusting to different instruments. Usefulness of knowing what goes on “under the bonnet” (he supports the idea an examination in organ building for organ students). The extent to which an historically “authentic” sound is possible or desirable. The relative merits of the piano verson and the organ version of Liszt’s “Weinen, Klagen, Sorgen, Zagen”.
