Guest Paul Isom Posted October 4, 2006 Share Posted October 4, 2006 I've just had one of those days - busy, hectic - all the things that demand relaxation afterwards. I've been footling around with Hauptwerk and MIDI files, experimenting to see which pieces could potentially be arranged for organ. For those of you types who like playing with such things, I can thoroughly recommend it, mainly for the fun value of seing a virtual organ having a near eplileptic fit - I can guarantee that you will have heard nothing like it. The star pieces of the evening which have assaulted a French romantic organ have been: Finale: from Divertissment (Ibert) Gadfly Gallop: (Shostakovich) Nightmare before Christmas (????) and various Grainger pieces The Grainger works very well on the organ indeed. The Ibert sounds absurd, but great fun if you leave in the toy counter percussion stuff! The nightmare before Christmas will also translate well, although it may be that it won't make the top ten Christmas organ voluntaries! I wonder when Jean Guillou will be bringing out his transcription of Divertissment................................................. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
