I love Jan Zwart's organ works. He was one of the most famous Dutch organists and composers of the Romantic period. Today I'm going to learn his fantasy and fugue on Psalm 72, Verse 11 "Zijn Naam Moet Eeuwig Eer Ontvangen" and show your my method of 11 steps in mastering it. If you repeat them on your own, you will be able to play it like I will. Sauer organ from Chemnitz sample set by Sonus Paradisi will work especially well for this piece.
I practiced only 5 steps today. Step No. 6 would be to stop at the beginning of every line. Step No. 7 would be to stop at the beginning of every 2 lines. Step No. 7 - stop at the top of every page. Step No. 8 - stop every 2 pages. Step No. 9 - stop every 4 pages. Step No. 10 - stop twice per piece. And Step No. 11 - play entire fantasy and fugue without stopping. Hope you will enjoy it!
