    What are your favorite performances on YouTube?

    I love watching great performances on YouTube. There are so many that are great. Currently these are my favorite, but I'd love to watch yours and see if they bump to my top list!







    and just cuz it's so darn fun:


    my favorites change a lot. Show me something I need to see!

    Haha, I have over 200 in my favorites list, so hard to single any out. My personal tastes are all over the place, but lately I at least have to start my day with these:

      Ok, Easy to Wed wins the most campy, highly entertaining, grin on my face award for today! But Tiger Rag wins the “Hands all over the place award!”

      I just find this sort of thing jaw-dropping. For me it is a struggle to get my left hand to do *anything* at the same time as my right hand, no matter how simple 8)

        Brian Auger = incredibly under-rated! This guy is a legend.

        Maybe, but the strawberry blonde out front has pretty good pipes and moves a whole lot better than he can from behind an organ console. No contest.

        That would be daughter Savannah, and on drums, son Karma. BTW, the whole album is really good!

      I love pipe organ music - played by the likes of Diane Bish and others. My most favorite piece is the Canon in D by Pachelbel. Some can really play it well but some tend to be in a little bit of a hurry with a piece of music probably intended to be played slowly and with feeling. I have about 20 different played versions including harp, xilophone and even a marimba version. But the pipe organ really does justice to this majestic piece!

        Totally agree Canon in D is my favorite piece of classical music and can be played by less experienced musicians

      Taylor Harvey's channel is a guilty pleasure. There are so few Rodgers organ videos out there. Then he comes along playing this big 960 that is heavily modified with two MIDI systems. If go big, or go home works in the organ world, this guy has it figured out!

        Who has time to spend watching *ouTube videos? I use it mostly for practice.

            I think I'm repeating myself, but those who love Cesar Franck's organ music need to check out Alexander Frey's performance on Youtube of the Third Choral at Trinity Wall Street, a performance I consider definitive (and I've been playing that piece, or trying to play it, for 50+ years). He had Cameron Carpenter turning pages!! <gasp>
            I don't have the URL handy but should be an easy search.

            You CANNOT be serious, this was a reed/pump organ? Gonna have to rethink what I think about any organ of any stripe.

              Oh yes! and that is Rodney Jantzi playing it. Lovely organ with very good sound - and its probably more than 100 years old!

              Tpap, do you recall that vid? I'd be very interested in seeing it. Imwas impressed with the low end, had no idea they could do that.

              Hello Vebo, I just now discovered your comment, I think it was the "T&F" that you linked to in the T&F thread a couple days ago

            Not the best recording technically but moves my soul every time I listen. You can skip the ad.

              Don, I agree with you completely. That video is awesome, and so terribly sad, all at the same time. When you want to see how to really put Feeling into leading a hymn, this is how it is done.

            It may be because I had a flu-ish virus over the weekend, but these guys (Richard Hills again) just make me happy:

                RogerM, actually Yamaha introduced Touch Vibrato by moving the key horizontally way back in 1971. My EX-42s have it.

                Thanks Larrytow,
                Horizontal touch vibrato is demonstrated at 8.00 minutes into this video of the EX42 - what a beast https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=B8fpX5Pt_qc I was being lazy and avoiding research.

                Yup, I relistened to #4 on headphones and heard it more clearly.

              And now for something completely different. David Halls plays a transcription of this 1919 Eric Coates piece on the Salisbury Cathedral organ:



              For theater organ - any performance by Iain McGlinchey:

              https://www.youtube.com/user/imcg110/videos

              For classical, including "listenable" 21st century stuff and the occasional fun and unexpected (like the theme from Dynasty), I really like Marko's performances:

              https://www.youtube.com/user/mhakanpaa/videos

              Rob Stefannusen has some good Hauptwerk recordings, including a number of Richard Elliott (Mormon Tabernacle organist) arrangements:
