New Concert Video from GUMC by Héctor Salcedo

PostSat Aug 01, 2020 8:34 pm

I am please to share a "virtual" concert, recently recorded by Héctor Salcedo on the Hauptwerk organ at Greenwood United Methodist Church - Greenwood, IN. ... hkViPavTfe

The program includes some personal favorites, as well as an original composition, an off-the-cuff improvisation, and more! I hope you will subscribe to us on YouTube and follow us for more recordings in the near future.

As for the recording, I tried a new approach to the video - and as it turns out, I need some more light, the sanctuary is quite dark in the evenings.

Toccata from the Misa with Songs by Domingo Lobato (1920-2012)
Notes: Domingo Lobato Bañales. Mexican composer and organist, born in Morelia Michoacan on July 4th, 1920, and death in Guadalajara on October 5th, 2012. He was a student of the great Mexican organist and composer Miguel Bernal Jimenez.

Sonata for Organ Op. 65 N. 6 by Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy (1809-1847)
- Choral and 6 variations
- Fugue
- Finale

Notes: The Sonata N. 6 in D minor is based on Luther's Chorale Vater unser im Himmelreich (Our Father, who art in heaven).

Ciacona in E Minor, BuxWV 160 by Dietrich Buxtehude (1637-1707)
Ciacona or Chaconne has a structure similar to the variations on a repeated short harmonic progression often involving a fairly short repetitive bass-line. This type of composition was a very popular composition in the baroque.

Sonata Finale by Vincenzo Petrali (1830-1889)
Notes: Vincenzo Petrali (1830–1889) was organist in the basilica of Santa Maria Maggiore in Bergamo, Italy, and taught in Bergamo and Pesaro. He is remembered today as the teacher of Enrico Bossi who went on to become Italy’s greatest composer for the organ. Petrali himself had a great reputation as an organ virtuoso and wrote a very large number of lively and tuneful organ compositions.

To Our Lady of Einsiedeln by Hector Salcedo (1980)
Originally this piece was born from an improvisation made in the Einsiedeln monastery, Switzerland. After the eve prayers, the monks walk directly to the chapel where the Black Virgin is found and sing the Salve Regina to 4 male voices. After this, the organ improvises a very soft piece so that people can continue to pray and have their close encounter with the Virgin Mary.

Final from the 1st Sonate Symphonie in D minor Op. 42 by Alexandre Guilmant (1837-1911)
Notes: French organist and composer. He was organist of La Trinité in Paris, from 1871 until 1901. A noted pedagogue, performer, and improviser.
