  • Ton Koopman

    Who here likes Ton Koopman? I am a huge fan of all his interpretations of Bach's works for harpsichord and organ.

    I like his playing. Not exclusively; but I like his playing.

        I supportand enjoy his playing in many ways but for some pieces I just hate his choose of tempi or his strictness with rythm in some more "free" pieces.

          I can't say I am a fan of "all" his interpretations of Bach. He is definitely fascinating in his approach to baroque music. Sometimes it sounds like he is suffering from an involuntary tremor - his ornamentation is just over the top, sometimes messing up the melodic line. He is of the TPM school of playing. TPM stands for x number of trills per minute, the higher the better.</p>

          At least he is not a boring player, as a lot of organists seem to be these days both in person and in recordings.</p>

            I'm a member of the TPM school as well hehehe -- I always add a trill or mordent whenever I can. I find his interpretations of harpsichord music (has anyone heard his recording of Joseph Hector Fioco's Suite de Clavecin?) especially...satisfying. </p>

              I really admire his musicianship, trills and all. Heck, I purchased many of his LP's, CD's and most of his performance DVD's. Big fan, here!

                  my user name is after Joseph de Maistre, a Catholic political philosopher who lived during the Masonic French Revolution, but my avatar is a picture of Flapjack dressed as a sardine in order to stow away to Candied Island. :) </p>
