James Goldrick Posted November 29, 2006 Share Posted November 29, 2006 I wouldn't be surprised if a similar 'Desert Island Discs' sort of topic is buried somewhere in the Mander Discussion archives, but why not start a fresh one? Two of my choices are organ with ensemble, so it's definitely not restricted to solo works. I'm specifying single recordings rather than entire CD's or LP's, unless of course it is a major work like Durufle's Requiem or Messiaen's Nativite. So here's my Top Five: (1) Karl Richter Bach - Dorian Toccata and Fugue in Dm Bwv 538 Freiburger Dom - Silbermann Hauptorgel (2) Michael Dudman Langlais - Concerto No.3 'Reaction' for organ, strings and timpani. Sydney Town Hall - Hill and Son Grand Organ (Sydney Symphony, Patrick Thomas cond.) (3) Pierre Cochereau Chant - Te Deum (in alternatim) Notre-Dame-de-Paris - Grand Orgue Cavaillé-Coll (Choir of NDdP, Jehan Revert dir.) (4) Charles Tournemire Improvisation on 'Victimae Paschali Laudes' Sainte Clotilde, Paris - Grand Orgue Cavaillé-Coll (5) Piet Kee Walther - Partita on 'Jesu Meine Freude' Weingarten Basilica - Gabler Hauptorgel Looking forward to further contributions Cheers James Goldrick Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
