    Publisher?

    Have tried to trace a publisher of Jan Swart's 'Toccata Psalm 146' but have failed. Anyone know?

    Would also like to read some info on Jan Swart, but can't seem to find that either!

    If I may ... a slight spelling correction ... that should be "Zwart" instead of "Swart"

    Jan Zwart (1877-1937) was a Netherlands organist.

    The Toccata on Psalm 146 is available in (click here) print for a reasonable price. Zwart's compositions are not yet in the public domain, so his works are copyrighted at the moment.

    A little information on Jan Zwart can be found here, and here, but you will have to translate the pages.

    What follows is a video performance of the work in question:

    What a coincidence Lars !!

    At jOrgan forum we're discussing about young organists and especially for this 16yo kid....... amazing...... Give's me hope that there's gonna be a continouum of the organ history and will live for this century too !

    Kh .... thank you! What a difference a letter makes! I had seen/heard this on YouTube before, which is why I wanted the music.
    Thanks too for the biography links. Dutch is totally beyond me, but luckily the 'bnote' site included a biography in German, which was
    a bit easier to understand. Anyway, my order is already flying about somewhere in the ether. It was helpful to be able to
    look at the score on the pdf file on the website, to decide whether or not I ought to invest.

    As for the organist Panos, would that we could all play like that at that age! He's very competent - and confident too I guess.

    My copy of Jan Zwart's 'Toccata on Psalm 146' arrived yesterday. Superb service from B-Note publishers!
