    Aria in G dur arranged for organ

    For this piece written for organ (without pedal) and trumpet we normally need a real trumpeter. But georges Geannakakes plays the trumpet part with his feet. That is not easy at all.

    TOYS AT THE ATTIC!

    When attending a (church) organ concert, in most cases one cannot see the organist. That's why I like clips like these, where I can watch his/hers concentrated and busy playing. Though it also makes me kinda jealous. (I'm only able to ill-handle the piano.)

    Thanks for posting! (Liked the combination with the cathedral acoustics of the second manual.)

    Very nice, Jean-Paul

    Wonderful idea about playing the solo with pedals ... have to give that a whirl myself.

    Indeed - I was thinking the same thoughts myself. Obvioulsy four synthesizers and an "off the shelf" set of pedals.
    I'm not an atheist and I don't think I can call myself a pantheist. We are in the position of a little child entering a huge library filled with books in many different languages. The child knows someone must have written those books. It does not know how. The child dimly suspects a mysterious order in the arrangement of the books but doesn't know what it is. That, it seems to me, is the attitude of even the most intelligent human being toward God.

    Here are the explainations given by Georges in his Youtube channel
    I've transposed the trumpet line down two octaves to the pedal board. I've played this piece using Milan Digital's Notre Dame de Metz Cavaille-Coll extended set. Since I don't have a trumpette like the one Verpeaux has on his video of his composition
    I used the following voicing:

    Receit: Cornet Trompette 8' Clarion 8' Basson et Hautbois 8' Vox Humane 8'

    Positive: Flute Douce 4' Cor de Nuit 8' Salicional 8' Nazard 2 2/3' Tierce 1 3/5'

    Great: Montre 8' Doublette 2' Plein Jeu

    Pedal: Trompette

    The trompette is played by the pedal and receit coupled.
    The positive is played with the trompette line.
    The great plays the solo part until the end when the trompette line joins the great (measures 45-48).

    I'll keep on practicing on this piece until one day I can play it flawlessly. Why show it now one might ask, well, it might take years to perfect my playing of this piece and I'm not so patient as to wait so long ;-)

    And here is the score in a video of my original music. My trumpet is a real bugle the notes of which I have sampled. I use it as the only stop of my 3rd manual.

    Hello Musicalis.
    I made a home-made-organ from a Yamaha keyboard and 5 sets of harmoniun reeds coupled to the pedals, which also includes several instruments two octaves lower.
    I used a discarded console from an electronic organ to put the keyboard, and it looks nice.
    I will intend to add a picture.
