ECLECTICISM - PIECE PIPES OR PIPE DREAMS?

Recommended Posts

Not strictly on topic, but the additions made to the 1969 Holtkamp in the Paul Recital Hall at the Julliard in 2002 are an interesting barometer of changing fashions:

What seems not to change though, is the capacity for eminent organists to mutilate the integrity of instruments in their care! (I haven't heard this organ though, and it may sound a whole lot better following its 'improvements', I suppose. But the console too!!!)

 

Does anyone remember that fashion for tacking neo-barock positives onto romantic organs...? ;)

What about this then - in the same general location - a lot is revealed in close study of stops, console, gadgets etc. But look at it's date!
