    Ahh, Mozart ... Fantasia in F Minor (k 608) comes immediately to mind. I've started working on learning this piece. Originally composed for a mechanical clock's pipe organ, the piece presents some very special challenges for the organist in their attempt to replicate the exact precision and timing and note passages, trills, runs, etc.

    [Laughing to myself] Krummhorn, that is a tasteful UNDERSTATEMENT! I learned K608 last year and performed it in the fall. I'm trying to get it in shape for two performances next month. I'd say while working on it that the words that come to mind are more like *&^%$#@&* special challenges! LOL

    I confess to having all of the Mozart organ pieces at the ready. They are a joy to play and always catch people off guard.

    I play Mozart on the pipe organ. The ones I know and remember since
    I don't have any sheet music. I can play it by ear.

    Playing Mozart's Piano Sonatas on the organ really gives you access to a kaleidoscope of colors.

    Unfortunately, Herr Mozart wasn't so prolific at composing for the organ, wasted too much of his time writting for that useless (classical era) flute.

    Yes..
    If Mozart wrote another pieces as per the same level of the beatiful fantasy in f minor, probably we should have another great organ compositor on music history..
    The fantasy is really impressive, in some passages quite "bachian".. Great!

    Smile Mozart

    Hi !
    I believe I have played sometimes a transcription of Ave verum.
    I do not know if I still have the score.

    Opera played on the pipe organ? Now, that would be a hoot ... wonder if it has ever been transcribed for organ ... ... Marriage of Figaro was originally scored for:
    • 2 Flutes
    • 2 Oboes
    • 2 Clarinets
    • 2 Bassoons
    • 2 Horns
    • 2 Trumpets
    • 2 Timpani
    • Strings
    Lest we not forget the solo vocals and the chorus, too.
    Hmmm, not to sure all this would work out well - maybe certain parts (choruses) but to perform the entire opera without vocals might be stretching it a bit ...
