    This piece, Symphonie Concertante, of Jongen is my favorite Organ/Orchestra composition. I was at Temple Square in Salt Lake City in June 2003 and attended the Inaugural Concert of the new Schoenstein (130 rks) in the newly build Conference Center. Todd Wilson was the organ soloist, playing with the Tabernacle Choir Orchestra. That building seats over 22,000 people - there were 19,500 people that night attending ... my son and I had seats dead center, 5 rows from the front on the main floor ... fan-damn-tastic.

    If you have never listened to the entire composition, I would highly recommend it.

    Wow - Krummhorn,

    You're one darn lucky fella dear sir - Sheeesh!!! I've heard so much about the Schoenstein at the Mormon Convention Center - To have heard the whole Jongen with the Symphony - Yowsa!!! Did the organ disappear under the onslaught of the brass section or did the organ come to the fore?

    I remember hearing Jean Guillou playing the Jongen at the Meyerson Symphony Center in Dallas. That modest-sized Fisk(64 stops) throttled the brass section, not so much with blare, but with enormous quantities of driven sound. Guillou kicked in the SFZ Tutti and.......WOW!!!!!! Even the trombones sent up a white flag after the performance - they certainly got throttled.

    Cheers,

    Corno Dolce
