    Dear Sir Frederik...

    Sir Frederik,
    You may or most likely may not, remember me from last year about this time. Once again I am requesting another imposition on your time and talent (the great favors you have already bestowed not withstanding).

    I would truly appreciate another chance to make use of your rendition of the "Tocata and Fugue" that you granted to me last year.

    This time the stakes are a little higher. I would like your permission to use it own "Youtube" commensurate with my theatrics (meaning a dancing Bride and Groom ghost). Appropriate credit would be given to you of course (although I've lost the details since last year on the organ and church), I still have the music.

    Also, you could see the video production ("production" is a big word here (it will only be a 2 minute video off of my digital camera) before hand if you like.

    I have a great deal of respect for your work, otherwise, I wouldn't bother asking, I know that you are as generous with your talents as I am...everybody wins when you share talent.

    Regards,
    Allen

    Hi Allen,

    Sorry about the slow reply - I'm in the process of catching up from my temporarily absence from this site.

    You shall be most welcome to use my rendition of the Toccata and Fugue in D minor. The details can be found in this thread.

    Looking forward to see the video!

    Best regards,
    Frederik

    I certainly will. I may not have time to give much forwarning (in fact, I was trying to test it "to failure" tonight until my wife stopped me because it was haulin' ass)...it's a lot of work, I believe Frederik would be O.K. with me going ahead to "you-Tube" without his permission though, but I'll try anyway.

    Questions for Frederik Magle

    Dear Sir Frederik (the "Sir" fits you very well)

    Very impressive career you´ve had since your birth in 1977. I guess you did not spend much time playing indians and cowboys with your fellow children friends or watching soccer games on the telly from England during saturday afternoons, while a child.

    My question to you is - Why pipe organ? Do you know of any musician playing the pipe organ in jazz, except perhaps for Keith Jarrett, who seems to play any instrument that have keys on it.

    Rather difficult to have one pipe organ to practice on at your home , I would guess?

    Thank you for this awesome website.

    Respect from intet-at-tabe

    Sir Frederick,
    I'm sorry to disappoint, I was rear-ended in a automobile accident just prior to Halloween. I was uninjured, but I didn't have time to complete the subject project because of it (car was out of commision).

    I'm so very sorry,
    I will try and finish it for this Halloween.
    Thank you so much for your kindness.
    Allen.

    The "Sir" is totally of my own making. Because he deserves it.

    Mr. rocketmanallen and our host Sir Frederik

    This is exactly how I read your entry Mr. rocketmanallen, the expression "Sir"
    because he deserves it. There was no illmannered tone or sarcasm or irony in it.

    I hope I did not step on anyones toes here. I just never knew of or heard of anyone who played the pipe organ and made a professional career out of it.

    The size of the pipe organ as a musical instrument is incredible and it must almost be art, the instrument itself. It has to be the biggest instrument in music at all, no matter style except perhaps for music done by nature itself. I relate a pipe organ to a church where psalms are sung every sunday, and whatching the images of pipe organs on the site, made me think (perhaps rather naive): How does one exercise ones skills at home?

    Of course Frederik plays the piano as well and a traditional organ, I would assume. He probably composes music on the piano, and then translate it for the pipe organ. A lot of great jazz musicians no matter what 1. instrument they have, compose their music using a piano or some keyboard, for instance my favourite jazz guitarist the englishman John McLaughlin, who also composes classical music for a symphony orchestra, where the acoustic guitar is the leading instrument. Check out this link www.johnmclaughlin.com or his album from Universal Music, France 2003 "Thieves & Poets" with the classical orchestra: I Pommeriggi Musicali di Milano.

    Beside this, as a guy who does not play any instrument at all, have no education in music, but simply adore music and know that music itself has a theraputic effect as well, I have always looked up to/favoured scollered musicians no matter whether they play rock, blues, jazz, classical music or any other form of or ethnic style of music.

    In world jazz the competition among jazz musicians since Miles Davis appeared on the jazz scene in the USA during the 1940/50´s, has been very tough. In the USA they have two education centers for musicians known throughout the world: 1) The Julliard School of Music - mostly for classical music, solo instruments, and some of these geniuses, we all have heard of who can play from the age of three or so and conduct a symphony orchestra from the age of eight. 2) The Berkeley School of Music, where most american and foreign musicians in jazz want to study.

    Looking at the career of Frederik Magle, one can only say: Astonishing, incredible, awesome, a genuine TALENT who early in life found his main interest for his life and later after studying for hours on end, year after year made a professional career out of it. I can only remove my hat from my head in total appreciation of Frederik, and I believe Mr. rocketmanallen, this is exactly what you did, when you entered the distingquished "Sir" in front of Frederik, who also had the time, the knowledge and the pleasure in making of this website for everyone concerned.

    In England they give titles like "Sir" or "Dame" to musicians, actors etc. etc. who made a huge impact worldwide on people. We don´t do this officially in Denmark, but perhaps we should.

    Best regards to the both of you,
    intet-at-tabe

    I remember a chance conversation I had with with Dexter Gordon at the Village Vanguard in New York many, many, many years ago and I asked him what the definition of Jazz is and his reply: Sex! Anyway, hearing his rendition of "Round Midnight" had a great impact on me and my infatuation with Jazz.

    What about the sex? Its great when two people can be truthful to each other in intimacy.
