From "Three Little Oddities for Piano"
Composed by Zez Confrey (1895 - 1971)
Edward Elzear "Zez" Confrey was an American composer and performer of novelty piano works, well known for his "Kitten on the Keys."
This custom organ was commissioned by a friend who wishes to remain anonymous, and who has made it available to me for use at my home. This "American Classic" organ is a combination of two Sonus Paradisi Organs: Aeolian-Skinner, Opus 1301, and Reuter, Opus 227, plus percussion voices from the Paramount Organ Works 450 Theatre Organ. It also includes some additional voices from the extension set of the Aeolian-Skinner by Jake of Custom Hauptwerk Organs, who also created this custom organ. You can contact Jake at: customhworgans[at]gmail[dot]com if you are interested in commissioning a custom organ for yourself.
I'm still getting to know this instrument, there is a lot to it! I would never have thought to combine a Reuter from 1927, and an Aeolian-Skinner from 1957. So far I'm really enjoying the instrument. I've included these three uploads to showcase some of the variety available.
The skinny strings from the twenties, seem to blend well with the rounder strings found on the Aeolian-Skinner. You hear those along with several of the solo registrations available, several beautiful flutes, the voxes and one of several harps available.
