Yep, the Organ can do Orchestra Too

  • January 2, 2008 update... a new youtube video just out: The Nutcracker Suite at Stanford University's Memorial Church played by Frederick Hohman.
  • Here's a video of Raúl Prieto Ramírez, Spanish organist, doing a brilliant performance of the Saint-Saëns Danse Macabre (transcribed for organ by Edwin Lemare, on an organ not even particularly well suited to it (those Spanish trumpets sure are funny sounding. More like a Krumhorn-en-Chamade to me!). He makes it suitable. An amazing performance; very dynamic and energetic.

    A much, much higher quality version of this video can be downloaded for free from Organs and Organists Online in the video downloads section. You have to start an account, but its free and instant to do so.

    Google for Markus Wargh. He's got some good youtube clips, including a solid rendition of Sibelius's Finlandia.
