Olivier Latry at the Royal Albert Hall

Postby paulw » Wed Aug 07, 2019 8:25 am

Not sure how many non-UK friends can access, but here's a BBC link to Olivier Latry's performance at the BBC Prom on 4th August at the Royal Albert Hall

I was there and it was great!

And Buckfast Abbey is about to get a new Hauptwerk organ next week for the Organists' practice room. :D

Any specs on this Hauptwerk organ? # of manuals? Sample set(s)?

Assume Buckfast Abbey water wheel was used to "power" the (old) organ? Renewable energy in former times 8)

It's our "standard" UK-style 3-manual console from the Hoffrichter firm in Germany.
See here for picture: https://www.dropbox.com/s/namz9xqa8enxj ... 9.jpg?dl=0
Sample-sets will be Metz and Waltershausen for starters.
NB: This is not for use in the Abbey church - only for practice in the Music Department office.

Initially headphones (AKG K712). Studio monitors + sub maybe later.

FWIW, I recommend Sonarworks with the AKG (and pretty much all other headphones).

Excellent choice. Very un-coloured, esp for organ music. Reasonably comfortable for over-the-ear, during longer sessions.

Is there a comparable AGO version of the "standard" UK-style 3-manual console from Hoffrichter available in the United States? It looks like a very attractive and compact instrument for home use, but I imagine having one shipped from Europe would be quite expensive.

Thanks,
Bill

Depends what you mean by “an AGO version”. What would you want done differently from the picture?
I know of at least two Hoffrichter instruments in the US. There may be more.
If there were sufficient demand, we could consider shipping more than one at a time.
