YOUTUBE - CAMERON CARPENTER
« on: August 29, 2008, 10:22:20 AM »
Yet another superb organist - Cameron Carpenter, who plays mainly classics - Bach, Chopin etc., but one video includes a version of Stars & Stripes Forever which clearly shows unbelieveable pedal playing. He also appears to do a special line in footware !

However, I believe his playing will be inspirational to members of our Group.

The web address is:  www.youtube.com/watch?v=iWD6uEKYOOY.

Best wishes

Neville,

Isn't he just fantastic? 

When going through your LINK my computer had great difficulty in keeping the download ahead of the "playing" .. so got lots of "stop start" playing.  But I have realised that the way to avoid this is to click the Pause, and then to click and drag the "button" back to the beginning .. and wait for the whole thing to download before attempting to "play" it again.  You can tell, as there is a "pink line" that gradually creeps across the bottom of the playing "window".  When fully downloaded click the single arrow and it will play without the "glitches".

Hugh

Neville and Hugh

Wow! What a tremendous performer.  The speed of his feet, hands and fingers is amazing and what a magnificent organ too.

I don't know about your computer keeping up with the download !
I had trouble keeping up with the whole performance.
How does he do it ?
Is he on some special substance or have they speeded up the film.
He reminded me of a Ballet Dancer playing the Organ.
It's left me breathless " Brilliant "
Thankyou Neville for the link

Hi Hugh

This problem with starting and stopping has occurred regularly and quite wrongly I thought it was a mal-function with the video. However, with your advice the problem has been solved and I am very grateful to you for your comments.

Best wishes

Neville
