    Coming Out Of The Closet...

    Alright gang,

    I can't take it anymore - I have to come out of the closet on this one. Here's the piece de resistance which got me - hook, line, and sinker. After this, I was a changed man:

    Dearest CT64,

    The inference was about my going gaga over the artistry of Pierre Cochereau playing "Dieu Parmi Nous" by Messiaen. I was all JSBach before hearing Cochereau doing Messiaen. Remember, I was an impressionable teen once - and then hearing French fireworks such as this back in the 70's in Notre-Dame was a life-changing experience for me.

    Cheers,

    Ah yes, I see! He's a fine organist, that's for sure. And the Notre Dame organ is one of the best, I reckon. I don't own any Cochereau playing Messiaen as I have the Olivier Latry set (complete), which I adore. It's the one with the beautiful rainbow colour scheme on the DG box.

    Hi CT64,

    I have that DG box also - Latry does basically a fantastic job - no doubt about it!

    Corno, many thanks for posting that. Damn didn't Cochereau love milking the acoustics there?? Talk about a meeting of high ideals, Cochereau playing Messiaen. Have you heard the recordings of his improvisations? Mind boggling stuff.

    The few bars leading up to the cadence of DPN has to be one of the most stunningly apocalyptic in the repertoire.

    Hi Soubasse,

    You're very welcome dear sir - I'm glad I could be of assistance to you. I have heard just about all the recorded improvs done by Cochereau. As a very young teen I remember hearing Cochereau doing a program of Dupre, Messiaen, and PC's own improvs at Notre-Dame. Man, after hearing PC live for the first time, I was in a state of exaltation.

    Cheers,

    From such a face or form as yours do even the noblest sentiment sounds like the black utterances of a depraved imagination?

    Hi CT64,

    Might I humbly inquire if you were addressing me with your latest posting? If so, I'm afraid that you have me flummoxed.

    Cheers,
