    Interesting Tracker Organ and view of playing it

    http://youtu.be/RRhVdcKXfRg Enjoy. Good young organist also. Here you can see why in Bachs and early days used there toes and no heel/toe as such.

    I wish you the Best for each day, now and always.

    Fascinating! And to hear that sound coming out of a deceptively small console. Thank you for sharing it.

    Exquisite sound. A well played beautiful organ in a lovely church. I only wish I had some clue what he was talking about. Thank you

    Interesting tuning too! I've always found it curious that the builders of the time packed that much into a specification and put it all on one manual only. I'll also confess to taking one look at his trainers and thinking "He's playing in THOSE?!?!" then I realised he's not using his heel of course! (mind you, as far as outrageous playing footwear goes, has anyone else seen those YouTube clips of Kimberly Marshall playing in stilettos? )

    Why an organist would play in high heels is certainly a good question, but she's not the first one. Jeanne Demisseux (sp.??) was known for that, too.

    I had not seen Kimberly Marshalls videos but I have some recordings of her in the Stamford Fisk. Thanks

    Hm, I'm not Italian either. But he begins with greetings to all music and organ lovers. And then I guess he's a.o. saying he will show and proof the excellent recording tools he's gonna use ("fantastico microphono") and he's saying something about the organ of his town. If I'm not mistaken, it's the organ in the church of Vallo di Caluso in the district of Torino (Turin).

    About this organ: it's a genuine oldie, built around 1730 by Antonio Maria Bonetta, with alterations some 40 years later by Giuseppe Ramasco. I think it was restored at the end of the 20th century.

    Exactly how I felt GB! However, Marc's explanation has helped somewhat. Thanks Marc!
