    Thank you for posting this, Paul. How wonderful to see Xaver fulfill his dream!

    I found some additional information that readers may find interesting. Here is an article describing this adventure:

      If you want to hear Xaver Varnus playing this instrument, check out this video:



      It must be nice to have your own three manual organ in your private concert hall!

        He certainly has skills! I don't remember any staccato notes in the either the Prelude or Variation part of the piece, though. I like the wainscoating on the walls and ceilings too. It must be a Canadian thing, as there is a small church in the Grand Falls area of New Brunswick where the entire inside of the church is wainscoating. It's really nice!

        I also wouldn't mind having the organ either. I'm working on it, though.;-)

      He definitely has an interesting interpretation of this well-known piece. I actually like his approach. Sometimes when something is so familiar a different rendering enables me to hear things in the piece that I did not notice before. His phrasing and rubato of the oboe solo almost makes it sound like an improvised melody.

        Bill,

        You're right about different phrasing. The first staccato sounded like a cuckoo (I never noticed that before), and the 2nd in the variation was interesting too. It certainly got my attention!
