    Hey there Billyboy - love that organ and love the hugely performer's interpretation, too.
    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.

    Hi Bill,

    Accident..... but a good one ! Maison Muchleisen/Walther makes fine organs and this one is no exception.

    As I saw he pulled all 6 manual stops for this and he left the 16' bass and coupler closed for this originally harpsichord piece.
    I love to hear hapsi/clavi works of JSB on organs and especially one manual ones. Elena Barshai did Goldberg Variations on Metzeler big organ.

    This guy has lots of talent but his performance was a bit unstable, though in perfect tempo/time for my taste, also a bit stressed from the camera and did a couple of mistakes that I'm shure when on his own he does not !!
    You can tell from the way he left the console after the end of the piece.

    Usually if we're into the piece, by ending we cannot just stand up immediately and leave... we need some time to recover !

    Anyway, fine link, I enjoyed much, mostly the Walther sound to be honest.
    Thanks my friend

    Well now, Panos - let's see you put a perfect performance up and we can compare. I think you were very VERY unkind.

    No no no no David, misunderstood !

    On the contrary ... I just said that he was under the camera syndrom... nothing to do with his talent and playin' !
    My latest posting of my playin' is here :

    http://www.magle.dk/music-forums/137...-suite-no.html

    Don't know yet how to rec and sync with video ect... I'm learning how to and then I'll post a video too, no problem.
    Got a lot of videos with me playin' with orchestras/bands and groups and many of them broadcasted on National and private TV channels here over the last 30 years (video tape only... I gotta revert them to digital...)
