"An Idea with Legs"
I find it so interesting how ideas make the rounds. On April 1st I emailed out my FREE Workshop #16: "Hitting the Wall," suggesting something in common between running a marathon and playing the organ.

My workshop also included a related blurb for Michael Bane's "Over the Edge: A Regular Guy's Odyssey in Extreme Sports."

Imagine my amusement this past Sunday upon seeing an article in The New York Times entitled "The Organ as Extreme Sport." Hmmm......

I'm currently reading the Bane book so you'll soon being seeing a bit more about Extreme Sports. For now, please see the updated pages below. I'm getting caught up!

WHAT I'M LISTENING TO...Johann Sebastian Bach by E. Power Biggs. This is a classic recording of Biggs playing the Flentrop organ in the Busch-Reisinger Museum at Harvard. The pieces were recorded during the span of years 1960-1971 and the variance in interpretation over that period is interesting. The more intimate registrations work better and are the most beautiful but they are also the earlier ones. Wish I had Biggs' accuracy and smoothness.
