NO OTHER INSTRUMENT is so victimized by stereotype as the organ, which the vast majority tend to associate with church, and probably with funerals, B movies, Halloween… And I think the organist’s image has really suffered. So I want to get in there and put on a show, because that’s what the organ is, after all. It’s a grandiose musical stage set, a glittering emotion-machine, and I see no reason not to have great deal of fun. The organ is musical dynamite, but its fuse must be lit.
