    Daniel Roth...

    A great improv by the acknowledged master himself:

    *Socrates: "My opinion is: Truth is absolute, not opinion, and that you are in absolute error. Since this is my opinion, then according to your philosophy you must grant that it is true."

    This guy plays from a songbook like I do at church. Sometimes I don't
    have my sheet music so I look up hymns in the church songbook and
    play what I know. I just wished the video didn't stop after every other
    note. I like to hear it.

    If the video is stopping then pause it and wait till it is fully buffered (the red bar will be filled). Then you can watch it. And he certainly isn't playing all of that from the limited music in front of him, being the great improviser he is!

    More St-Sulpice videos can be found here, some of them downloadable (including "Improvisation (long)", which seems to be the source for the Youtube link goven by Corno).

    Sigh - memories! Thanks for posting Corno.

    That (and some of those other links from acc) is so very similar to the footage I shot of DR doing an improv at S. Sulpice (followed by footage of me at the same console a short while later where I couldn't get the smile off my face!).

    An unparalleled experience to be sure. A superlative instrument .. or dare I say THE superlative instrument.

    Hi Soubasse,

    You're very welcome dear sir. I personally can never get enough of the St. Sulpice sound - it positively dazzles my mind and makes me drool.

    Cheers,

    Corno Dolce

    Indeed ¬ó while Notre-Dame is often referred to as a "Rolls-Royce" of the organ, David Briggs aptly characterizes St-Sulpice as being... "like an old Bentley".

    I prefer Jaguars myself, but I know exactly what you/he means! Nice fellow Briggs - very chatty. Clever SOB too, especially those Cochereau transcriptions he did

    I love the St. Sulpice organ ... I buy CDs featuring it when I can (often via Amazon). Also like Notre Dame d'Paris ... especially "Midnight at Notre Dame". Delicious.
