Re: Another big loss to the UK

i like Mors et Vita from Judex by Charles Gounod:
and March to the Scaffold, from Symphonie Fantasque, by Hector Berlioz:
.

War March of the Priests from Athalia, Mendelssohn:

Some very good music on YouTube. I was surprised the other day to find original recordings of Edvard Grieg playing Wedding at Trollhaugen on his own piano at Trollhaugen, in 1906. Amazing what is out there!

Enjoy, folks!

Re: Another big loss to the UK

I found this the other day which I found quite amazing.

It has nothing to do with organs - which should please Jim


Taken from an old TV Show nearly as old as I am... I'll name this tune in 10...

I presume that was Ed Balls when he was a scholar there, then? (Of course, he never made it to become a good fiddler did he....? )

Nah! When I were a lad - somewhere around the early 80's - I think it was hosted by Tom O'Connor or Lionel Blair?

Blimey they're names from the past..! You'll be finding something hosted by McDonald Hobley next.........

Edit...here he is, from 2 minutes in:

I can remember seeing him live at the BBC TV Theatre in Birmingham. With the B&W TV makeup, his face looked orange.

Loved the guitar playing .... but absolutely hate the Americans inability to actually listen to a performance without hootin' and hollerin' every time an artist does ... er ... well pretty much anything.

Re: Another big loss to the UK

I definitely have to agree on that. I've had many a good night spoilt by that other curse, the all too handy mobile phone. What kind of mentality spends good money on a theatre show or musical and spends time gobbing on a phone. Usually, made worse by the fact that the culprit could communicate verbally, without the use of the phone.

@ KiethL this one works

# 3 on your post doesn't work and curiousity got the better of me.

Strange! The mysteries of YouTube, perhaps. Thanks. There seems to be some odd behaviour embedded in some YouTube clips these days. Maybe to do with copyright, or computer security, or something... Anyway, you've done a grand job there!

Oddly, No 3 works perfectly on my computer! (Could it be something to do with the organ in the small window in your clip...? )

Three great pieces of music! I finally got to listen to them right through (life gets busy). The first & last I was less familiar with (though quite familiar with the composers) but the March to the Scaffold, from Symphonie Fantastique, by Hector Berlioz was always one of our favourites as we had played a short simplified version (more than once, I think) with our local Blue Mountains Orchestra where my children also played. It (full version) may have been on the programme when I played with the Penrith Symphony Orchestra too.
Anyhow, the last time I played in an orchestra (BMO 2005) it had a Celtic theme & so we (some members of a bush band) played for a demonstration Scottish Country Dance at it (plus I showed off with a solo & some more by playing a whistle standing up on stage behind the orchestra with music from Lord of the Dance).

Thanks for sharing that impressive performance. And he likes to entertain (humour) too!

Anyhow, back to organs (just because I can), I found this recording of a great performance of........

"Toccata & Fugue D Minor, BWV. 565" by Hannes Kästner (iTunes)"

Glad you enjoyed the clips, Ross. And for your selfies! Remembering you said 'playing a whistle', I looked at the first one, and thought "that's a violin shaped whistle!! "...then I found No 3!

That's a superb organ. It's Europe's largest: St Stephen's Cathedral, in Passau, Bavaria.

Over 17000 pipes and 233 stops.

When I was at school, I could have learned organ on this beautiful instrument, in Holy Trinity priory church, Coventry:



(Both from www.orgelsite.nl)

I didn't, because I wouldn't have been able to practice at home, something I always regretted.

And this is the old Coventry cathedral of St Michael, before it was destroyed in WW2. Handel played the organ there. You can just see the organ on the right hand side.


(from the Historic Coventry website)
