      My advice for all–NEVER listen to an organ performance with my wife!!! His tempo is all over the place, OR that's not what it sounds like! OR That's the problem with organ transcriptions of Symphonic music–it all sounds like mush rather than an orchestra. I almost couldn't hear the organ in between her comments–full disclosure, she's a Symphony violinist.

      My question to her, How many individual Symphony players do you know who can play with both feet, both hands, change registrations, and make it sound like the entire orchestra? Needless to say, she did not provide a complementary response.

      While I can say I'd like to have transcriptions of his performance pieces, I know they are for sale on their website. Good concert, though! I like the informational bits between the pieces.

        Very entertaining concert. His touch is perfect! A very nice organ also with an extremely pretty console.

          Michael, me neither. At the beginning of the video he swings with elevation onto the bench. It definitely is abnormal, but still cool.

          I saw that, Admin. I think I like the "Feature" feature, as long as it's not used too often.
