    Multi talented Gert van Hoef

    Young Gert van Hoef continues to amaze me! While my first love is classicalorgan music played on a pipe organ ...which Gert does with great proficiency, his other videos astound me with his skills and diversity. After just five years of playing, he has great abilities in both improvisational and scored music. Here are two very different performances:

    Gert's interpretation of the orchestral piece "Danse Macabre" on a digital organ:

    I agree... I have been following him since he first posted his playing on you tube a few years ago. HIs website is very helpful and infrmative too. I have posted a number of his performances on MIMF too

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

    If you're not impressed yet, go to Gert's list of videos and find a favorite piece to watch. Keep in mind that Gert couldn't read music five years ago, but now has posted nearly 140 videos.

    As for his improvisation skills, watch:

    Yes, I'm a fan, as is wljmrbill.

    So am I. I've watched him for a couple of years now. His progress has been fantastic.
