The dancing organist - the mad genius

I haven't been particularly enamoured with a certain high profile performer but

puts him into a very different light. Perhaps as he matures we'll find that respect is very much deserved.

Hi

He has a fantastic technique  - but does the music communicate?  I'm far from convinced by his excessive tempos.  His playing comes across as "listen to how brilliant my playing is" rather than "listen to the music".  I've come across other players in the same vein - and it can and does alienate some people from the organ.

I gave up on the video quite early - I'd rather listen to the music than a voice-over in a foreign language.  Maybe I missed something more encouraging later in it?

Every Blessing

Tony
