Hauptwerk on a budget - Demo of my $1800 virtual pipe organ for home practice



Brief demo of the Hauptwerk virtual pipe organ that I put together as a practice instrument in my home. For less than $1,800 I assembled a virtual organ that sounds great, and is easily expandable in the future. Hauptwerk has made good-sounding practice organs affordable and attainable to a much broader base of organists. A comparable digital organ would easily cost 15-20 TIMES as much as this (albeit it would look quite a lot nicer!). Of course, Hauptwerk is also great for large installations for public performance and in the service of God, but I demonstrate here its practical use as an affordable home organ.

Charles-Marie Widor - Symphony for Organ No. 5

- Composer: Charles-Marie Jean Albert Widor (21 February 1844 -- 12 March 1937) - Performer: Pierre Pincemaille - Year of recording: 2000 (played on the "Cavaillé-Coll de St. François de Sales" organ in Lyon, where Widor himself gave the premiere of this composition) The Symphony for Organ No. 5 in F minor, Op. 42 No. 1, was composed in 1879. 00:00 - I. Allegro vivace 10:34 - II. Allegro cantabile 18:36 - III. Andantino quasi allegretto 25:50 - IV. Adagio 30:55 - V. Toccata In terms of tonal architecture, Widor began his second set of organ symphonies, the four works of Op. 42, published in or around 1880, precisely where he left off with the previous set. The keynotes of the four organ symphonies of that first set (Op. 13) are C-D-E-F, and the Symphony No. 5 for organ, Op. 42, No. 1, is set in the same key as the last of those symphonies: F minor (and, significantly, the four works of Op. 42 outline a keynote scheme parallel to that of Op. 13: F-G-A-B). In the Symphony No. 5, which today may be the most frequently played of Widor's organ symphonies (and certainly contains his most famous movement), we can hear the composer beginning to explore, tentatively and just a little bit at a time, a more chromatically-involved musical palette than he allowed himself in Op. 13. The Organ Symphony No. 5 is in five movements, making it the most compact -- in terms of movement-total, not duration or musical language -- organ symphony yet. Compared to the slim, quasi-improvisatory Toccata that opens the Symphony No. 4 in F minor, the opening Allegro vivo of the Symphony No. 5 is a massive, solidly built movement whose arch-shaped main idea is put through many changes of timbre and character, including a scherzando central episode, over the course of 15 pages of music. With the next movement, the somewhat unusual layout of the Symphony makes itself plain: two quick movements and then two slower movements and a finale. If the goal is to find a traditional symphonic layout in the work, the Allegro cantabile second movement can be considered a kind of scherzo, and the two slower movements, Andantino quasi allegretto and Adagio, might be thought of as a kind of conglomerate slow movement. The energetic Toccata that ends the Symphony, with its repeating, ever-modulating subject, is easily Widor's most famous piece. It is often performed by church organists as a stand-alone composition. Pincemaille plays this organ symphony in an appropriate 'French' way, where many others unfortunately play this lighthearted music like a heavy Reger piece...

Our Cathedral Choir is made up of both professional and volunteer singers under the dynamic leadership of Dr. Jonathan Talberg. The choir performs a wide selection of sacred music and often offers special musical presentations as part of our morning worship. First Church is also proud to be home-base for two nationally recognized choruses; Gay Men's Chorus of Los Angeles, and Vox Femina of Los Angeles. Each of these organizations utilizes our space for rehearsals, and performs at least one concert per year in our venue. Members of these groups also participate in our Sunday morning worship from time to time. http://www.fccla.org
