I never miscue a record. I am punctual, well-prepared, and dislike clutter. Outgoing and helpful, I'm always appropriately dressed. I do not behave erratically and have excellent penmanship. My CD's never skip, and I am in good health. I like all the notes, in any order.

Is there an organ/organ pun in Austrian German? Because that could explain some of those images. (Also, I could listen to this all day.)
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 8/25/17 1:01pm sphere:

nonstick jesuits should only be used on low or medium heat. overheating can cause the coating to break down, which can result in the release of toxic particles and/or gases.
Avatar    Fri. 8/25/17 1:03pm steveo:

Looks like it's Organ/Orgel, so sorry, no.
Avatar    Fri. 8/25/17 1:10pm steveo:

Die Orgel wurde 2003 bis 2004 von dem Freiburger Orgelbauer Hartwig Späth erbaut. Das Instrument hat 41 Register (2745 Pfeifen) auf drei Manualen und Pedal. Die Disposition orientiert sich an französisch romantischen Orgeln im Stile von Aristide Cavaillé-Coll, insbesondere an dem Instrument der Orgel von 1880 in St. François-de-Sales in Lyon. Die Spieltrakturen sind mechanisch, der Spieltisch ist einem Cavaillé-Coll-Spieltisch nachempfunden.

Das Orgelgehäuse, das sich mit einer Höhe von über 12 Metern über zwei Emporen erstreckt, ist ebenfalls neu erbaut worden, wobei in weiten Teilen Elemente des historischen Gehäuses verwandt wurden.

Composer Franz Schubert conducted his Mass in F major there, and Anton Bruckner's Mass in F minor was written for the church and was first performed there. In the 21st century, the church is known to host high quality sacred music concerts, particularly for its weekly Sunday High mass with full orchestra and choir.

  Fri. 8/25/17 1:23pm willcrete:

I find that it is quite rare when pipe organ music provides for a satisfying at home listening experience, even though I love the sound of the instrument and the concerts I've attended of both modern and classical music. On a conventional stereo recording, so much often ends up being lost when the instrument's is removed from the typically richly resonant space in which it was originally constructed. Thankfully, this recording seems to be one of the exceptions, one in which the inherent "flatness" of a recording seems to actually work to the music's advantage. Another modern organ recording I've recently found engaging is Jean-Luc Guionnet's "De Proche En Proche"

Thanks for playing the entirety of that Nitsch recording. The "fluttering" sounds he got going during the 4th side were true things of beauty. My mind says that they were of course products of low frequency oscillation, but my ears and heart experienced a wonderful journey in the way he built towards them, let them loose, and pulled them back in during the final section of the piece.
