Inspirational instruments / Touring Pipe Organ Concert
« on: August 10, 2020, 11:18:47 AM »
Recently the organist Paolo Oreni did a concert on his touring pipe organ called the Organo Wanderer which is available on Youtube.

I should however point out that I am posting mainly out of intrigue as I personally feel that the performance was all right but note great.
A lot of the problems with his performance I would attribute to the space the concert is being held in as I feel the room is a bit small for some of the music performed.

But even then I feel even the performance isn't perfect, as I find Paolo Oreni's playing can be a little too erratic at times and the sound of the organ can also be quite piercing.

But I feel that if this concert was held in a better venue it could greatly improve the performance as I find a previous concert Paolo Oreni did accompanying a silent sounded quite good, and I even find his virtuosity to be less in your face.
Concert program

00:00 – Concerto in D Major after Vivaldi BWV 972 – Johann Sebastian Bach
11:21 – Fantasy and Fugue on B-A-C-H – Franz Liszt
23:42 – Toccata and Fugue in D minor BWV 565 – Johann Sebastian Bach
35:20 – Allegro Vivace from Organ Symphony No. 5 in F minor – Charles Marie Widor
46:18 – Gabriel's Oboe – Ennio Morricone   
58:20 – Badinerie from Orchestral Suite No. 2 in B minor BWV 1067 – Johann Sebastian Bach

I remember years ago seeing a video about a performance at the Melbourne town hall where someone played the pipe organ using a program called Kinect that allows you to create music through conducting.

You're welcome, and hopefully one day I could track down a specification for this organ.

It's probably not that important as I don't think many people will see this thread, but as some of you may have suspected that the original website for this project is no longer available. But I have managed to get access to an archived version of the site through an internet archive called the Wayback Machine.

Inspirational instruments / mobile concert organ

A few months back while I was looking for an organ mentioned in a video about historical organs used for accompaniment I stumbled across a modular pipe organ called the Wanderer Organo which I thought some of you might be interested in.

As far as I know there are two video’s of this organ on Youtube. One is a rather average video of Mozart’s Fantasia in F minor K 608, while the other is of a rather gloomy silent film version of Faust.

I know that I am a bit late to reply to this post but I would like to say that I think it is unfortunate that the idea of a mobile pipe organ is often ignored. I understand that the idea of a mobile pipe organ seems near to impossible but I do know of a couple of pipe organs that are designed to be portable but also quite powerful.
