MusingMuso Posted May 31, 2006 Share Posted May 31, 2006 Thanks to "pcnd" asking me about the Adema organ of the RC Basilik, Haarlem, in the Netherlands, I spent a little while digging around for the specifications of the THREE organs in the cathedral (4-manual, 3 manual and a little Koororgel). I then set about trying to find sound-clips, only to stumble across some superb full-length radio archive performances form the Netherlands. Not only did I stumble across this, to my delight, I discovered quite a lot of music previously unknown to me from Eastern Europe. I shan't say too much about the music, for you may listen for yourselves. However, is it only me that plays Glasunov and the Kodaly "Preludium", which can be heard played on the simply wonderful Adema organ at Haarlem RC cathedral, in all its "Cavaille-Coll-esque" glory? I'm not too sure how to react to Hungarian organ-music, which can be heard played on the Walcker organ of Doesburg Cathedral in the Netherlands, but the organ is again wonderful. Here are the pieces and the radio-net links:- http://orgelconcerten.ncrv.nl/ncrv?nav=wjqbuCsHtGAiBzBGFHD Preludes & Fugues by Alexander Glasunov (Ru) Prelude - Zoltan Kodaly (Hu) Passacaglia - Dimitri Shoastakovich (Transcription) (Ru) 1st Fantasia - Petr Eben (Cz) Ecce Homo - Klement Slavicky (Cz) http://orgelconcerten.ncrv.nl/ncrv?nav=enqbuCsHtGAiBzBGFkCvC (Walcker Orgel - Doesburg - Netherlands) Music by Hungarian Composers:- Te Deum - Imre Sulvok St Stephen's Fantasy - Gabo Lisznvav Epilogue (BACH) - Elek Huzella Reflection - Istvan Kollos MM Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
