I had not played a Triosonata for a very long time, remembering the trouble it cost to study them for my exams.

But gradually I convinced myself, that the fifth Sonata would sound fine on the Stade organ.
After that there was no escape.

It took a lot of kicking at the organ, banging my head against the wall, throwing the book out of the window, etc. etc., but at last the first part of number Five turned out presentable.

I studied it many years ago and it took me a full two weeks to get it a bit right again.

For those interested in part 2 and 3:
Perhaps they will be coming; perhaps not. Triosonatas still are very difficult, at least for me.
I never was much of a trio player.

There is a story about a famous Dutch organist, who once bragged to his friends about being able to learn all six of them within a day. He claimed having played only one of them finding it rather easy; almost so easy he was bored studying the rest.
So a nice little bet was placed upon this bold remark, because nobody believed him.
His friends locked him in the church for twenty-four hours with beer and sandwiches and when they released him and they called the bet, he COULD play them. Whichever one they asked him and whatever part: all perfect. They turned green with envy.

The story can very well be a load of hogwash, but it is nice anyway.
It would have taken me twenty-four months at least., studying for hours each day.
Would have cost me my marriage probably also......
