Last Sunday, I attended a concert in Ingolstadt, Germany, where Olivier Latry, Organiste titulaire at Notre Dame, Paris, played some, well, "unconventional" pieces. I'd guess that most listeners would have expected "plain good old church organ music", but instead they were confronted with a completely different style. (Hehe, that was fun to watch... ^.^)
As it was an extremely refreshing performance to enjoy for me, I tried to adapt a few things from his playing style in this improvisation and thus to bring a bit of "chaos" into it. Dear Monsieur Latry, should you ever read this: "Merci beaucoup!" again for your wonderful and enlightening performance! It was such a pity that I was unable to stay for a chat until all those press people were leaving... Instead, I took the time to play this dedicated piece for you.
I dearly hope that this faster piece wakes all the listeners up again who snoozed away during my last "Minas Tirith" transcription. ;-)
For those who own a 7.1 surround system, an 8-channel FLAC file can be picked up here to get an impression of what it will sound like in my living room:
