Organ Registration Workshop Principals, Flutes, Strings, Reeds, Mutations etc.
How can you use them meaningfully when playing organ?
By Vidas Pinkevicius
I get asked a lot about organ registration:
How to use organ stops effectively? What are the principles of organ registration? What are the mistakes people make when registering organ pieces? What are the main families of organ stops and how can you combine them in real organ music? How to write in registration on the music score? How to use the swell pedal? How to create a seamless crescendo on the organ?
The problem is that when we talk about organ registration, it's hard to describe it without referencing real organ compositions. In fact, it's best to learn organ registration when you are working on some organ pieces and trying to come up with a meaningful ways to combine the stops in order to perform them in public.
But we can talk about the principles of organ registration when we demonstrate separate families of organ stops. So I decided to create a course just like that.
These are the lessons I learned from playing the organ for more than 20 years. From trying out many organs, old and new, large and small. From having to adjust to the new instrument within 20 minutes or less. From playing organ demonstrations without any preparation on the unfamiliar instrument.
This course is not meant to be a comprehensive master course on every aspect of organ registration of every historical period and national school of organ composition including every genre ever written for the organ.
But if you have little experience of playing the organ, it help you understand the foundations of organ registration. In this case this course will enable you to know what types of pieces can be played with certain stops and their combinations. We will use the largest pipe organ in Lithuania for that which is at Vilnius University St. John's church.
I hope you will join me.
