Weekly update sunday June 20th
This week is somewhat different from the other sundays, just because there are multiple topics in this update.
Topic 1: Bach chorale
This weeks Bach choral is ‘Freu dich sehr, o meine Seele’ a melody familiar to most of us.
To listen: http://www.harmoniumnet.nl/Bach-chorals.html
Topic 2: New cd nr. 1: Dorak – Cello and harmonium
This is an ‘old’ recording from 1995 however still available for sale through the label’s website.
I have online a FULL track of Tchaikovsky “Andante cantabile’ opus 11, a transcription from String Quartet nr. 1 in D. The Debain harmonium, played by Paolo Giacometti (Italy) is quite present in this performance.
To listen to this track and see the cd information:
Topic 3: New cd (2010) Music for Advent and Christmas
Klaas Hoek performing music from Praetorius to Reger,
all played on Mannborg suction reed organ and Double Expression.
CD available through www.windharmonium.nl
Topic 4: Giant Schiedmayer harmoniums
Recently we were made aware about the emerging of a giant 2 m 40 stops Schiedmayer instrument in the USA.
Since I have been able to contact the buyer I am working on grabbing as much technical information about this instrument.
As a start of this research, I have added a new page showing a big 1 m 22 stops 11 ranks instrument by Schiedmayer.
The cases of both giants are almost the same.
