Plein Jeu (Suite du deuxième ton) - Denis Bédard

▶️ Watch on 3Speak


This is my rendition of the Plein Jeu movement from Denis Bédard's Suite du deuxième ton. Over the next few posts, I will be showcasing each movement from this modern take on the French Classical repertoire. Last night, I acquired the St. Pons-de-Thomières, Micot Organ (1771) from Sonus Paradisi. I was after a French classical organ to play this school of music and the St. Pons instrument was recommended to me by Steemian @tormus1958—he has actually played it in person.

The French classical school were very particular in how they composed. Their composition titles are generally the type of registration that is called for in the piece. The Plein Jeu registration requires the Principals at 16′, 8′, 4′ and 2′ plus Mixtures. To the general public, this sounds like the traditional "organ sound" that we all associate the organ with.

I hope you enjoy my rendition of this Plein Jeu movement by Denis Bédard.

Good one! Looking forward to hearing more of the 1772 Micot which I have played in recital. It is a wonderful organ.

Thanks for the recommendation. It wasn't a cheap sample set, but I will get a lot of mileage out of it. What was your programme for that recital and what year? !ENGAGE 20

You will get a lot of mileage out of this sample. I will have to look up the programme I presented at St Pons. I can recall a few items: Corrette’s Offertoire St Louis, 1st movement of Bach’s Trio Sonata no 3, a voluntary by Starling Goodwin and the Bach choral partita O Gott du frommer Gott.
