    Hi Chris,
    to Mendelssohn: nicely played, but it´s Sonata no. 4, not no. 5. I followed along with score. It´s a nice polyphony and I like Mendelssohn and also his organ-pieces very much. My only nitpicking is, that I have heard a noise around 0:27, but I suppose, it´s note-perfectly played (with the score from imslp.org I had to turn my head all the time, because the scan is in a vertical position). It´s interesting to see, that there is also a piano four hands transcription of the organ sonatas op. 65 availabe on imslp.org.

    to Bach: did you play this from the Generalbass-version (I could find only the alternative with Generalbass-Notation) or did you have a full notated version. Sounded very well for me. Good work.

    Oops, yes, corrected it.

    Yes it is :) The noise is my foot slipping off a pedal and the damn thing jumping up with a bang. THis organ is rather noisy and unforgiving.

    (with the score from imslp.org I had to turn my head all the time, because the scan is in a vertical position). It´s interesting to see, that there is also a piano four hands transcription of the organ sonatas op. 65 availabe on imslp.org.

    I'm not sure what you mean, who's this General Bass ? I just used the version
    from IMSLP. It's a manualiter piece.

    THanks for the feedback !

    Hi Chris

    It´s a very old "person" :lol: . The online-dictionary says "Generalbass"=thorough bass, or: basso continuo. It´s a bass voice with numbers like 6 for Sextakkord, 64 for Quartsextakkord etc. The player knows, which chord he has to play, when he sees the numbers under the bass-tone.
    During my studies I have learned to play Generalbass, btw.

    Oh right, you mean figured bass :!: I know about that and have tried to learn it, as it occurs in some pieces in my Bach book. While it's not hard to understand, it would take me a lot of practice to get comfortable with it. You need to read and interpret is just as easily as notes, and I did not see the point in devoting much time on that archaic thing. I would not want to learn organ tabulature either.
