    For Piano and Organ buffs everywhere...

    Got these youtube vids in my inbox this morning - Oh My Gosh.......

    Had Liszt heard his Mephisto Waltz played like this???

    I wonder what Ms. RoJo will say?

    If I had technique as good as that I'd probably wear the white sprkly outfit too!


    On second thoughts I don't think I'd even do it then. Mind you he's creating his own particular signature isn't he just!!!!!!!

    I believe it is Trinity Church on Wall Street in NYC.
    Here's a link for its organ specs. The artist is Cameron Carpenter

    Hi Krummhorn,

    Thanx for adding the specs. Say, all what I hear is deafening silence from Ms. RoJo. She is probably shell-shocked after witnessing the pyrotechnics provided by Cameron.

    Cheers,

    Corno Dolce

    Contra, Neb, maybe he couldn't afford a tux. He would have looked
    great in a tux playing the organ. I like to watch someone play the
    organ. It shows me how to take on a certain note. To me, he did
    a splendid job.

    You are welcome ...
    On the contrary, I think rojo will appreciate the talents of Cameron in this transcription to organ ... especially the fancy footwork. Makes my thighs ache just watching this young virtuoso.

    Yeah that was it - I knew I'd seen it before... (and of course Cameron giving it the treatment. :-) )

    I've seen that before - One organ I used to play had three manuals but had a solo division which was 'floating'. Basically I could assign it to any manual.

    I was shocked the first time I saw him on Youtube. Hardly believed it was possible what he was doing.


    The revolutionary etude is something else

    Hello Krummhorn,

    *Makes your thighs ache*, eh? After hearing Liszt's piano oeuvre transcribed for organ for the past 15 years, I have a very hard time in listening to them on just a concert grand - they just seem flat and uneventful.

    Cheers,

    Corno Dolce

    p.s. I'll probably now get *flamed* for being a heretic - eschewing Liszt for piano and espousing Liszt for organ, transcription or otherwise.
