In this final part of our concertmaster conversation, David Danzmayr mentions that he sometimes steps back and leaves the orchestra to play segments of pieces alone, because thereare times that the conductor can just “get in the way.”
Pontifical College Josephinum’s Pipe Organ
Listen to the Story
We visit Pontifical College Josephinum (the only Pontifical College sanctioned by the Vatican outside of Italy) and get a behind the scenes tour of their magnificent pipe organ with its three keyboards and pedals, 31 stops and 2332 pipes ranging from 16 feet to less than an inch.
This German-made instrument is the delight of ProMusica’s Tim Russell. We follow the conductor and orchestra as they prepare for a series of upcoming concerts featuring the pipe organ.
