George Wright Signature Four-Manual
Dwight Beacham, Organist

The Organ

For years, theatre organ enthusiasts have revered George Wright's studio organ as the ultimate recording instrument. Now, the sounds of this incredible instrument are contained in this 4-manual, 33-rank George Wright Signature Organ.

Dwight Beacham worked closely with George Wright in designing this exciting instrument filled with digital samples taken from his own Hollywood Philharmonic Recording Organ. George wanted to leave a legacy in sound for future generations and he realized that the Allen Organ Company was the logical choice. This instrument is not only the world's first theatre organ to utilize Allen's revolutionary Renaissance™ technology, but the first to replicate an existing pipe organ. Renaissance™ brings a new world of realism to digital organs.

Only one instrument combines the future of organ building with the samples and voicing of the legendary George Wright.

The Music

As a longtime fan of George Wright's, it is no surprise to find Dwight using many of George's musical mannerisms on this album. The opening tune, I Know That You Know, is based on two recorded versions that George Wright recorded, with a bit of Dwight's additions. All the music was chosen to show off the organ's spectacular sound.

The Recording

This recording was made in a 22' x 24' "test" room at the Allen Organ Company in Macungie, PA. No acoustic enhancement was used in post recording processing. Allen's exclusive Virtual Acoustic™ system was used during the recording.

Selections Include:

  • I Know That You Know - Youmans

St. John's Sonic Splendor

Philip Hahn, Organist

In 1961 St. John's Episcopal Church was blessed by the gift of an Aeolian-Skinner pipe organ. The tonal design consisted of 28 ranks of pipes controlled by 34 stops.

He also served as national President of the American Guild of Organists, a professional association of over 22,000 members. He performed concerts extensively in both the United States and Europe. Dr. Hahn held Bachelor and Master of Music degrees from the University of Michigan and earned his Doctor of Musical Arts degree at American Conservatory in Chicago with a double major in organ performance and composition.

Expressions

Dr. Roger Nyquist, Organist

"Nyquist is a stimulating artist, full of alertness, flexibility and imagination" (Fanfare Magazine). "Nyquist's playing is clean, exciting, and aesthetically satisfying the whole production makes a fine aesthetic whole" (John Ogasapian in The American Organist).

The remarkable legacy of renowned pedagogue and performer Arthur Poister lives on through the brilliant playing of his pupil Roger Nyquist. An international organ virtuoso, recording artist, and master teacher, Nyquist is in continual demand. Technical mastery, rhythmic energy, faithfulness to score, absolutely clean playing (with every note audible) and power of musical expression are the hallmarks of every Nyquist performance.

A native of Rockford, Illinois, Nyquist studied piano with Leola Arnold and organ with Allen Elmquist. He earned the Bachelor of Music Degree cum laude from Augustana College, Rock Island, Illinois, studying with Phillip MacDermott. Nyquist holds the Master of Music Degree from Syracuse University where he studied with Arthur Poister, and he received the Doctor of Music Degree from Indiana University as a pupil of Oswald Ragatz. He has also studied with Andre Marchal and Catharine Crozier.

Among several honors, Dr. Nyquist is listed in International Who's Who in Music, Outstanding Educators of America, and in American Keyboard Artists. He was awarded the Outstanding Teacher of the Year at the University of California, Santa Barbara, in 1967 and also at Santa Clara University in 1973. In June 1984 Dr. Nyquist received the Outstanding Achievement Award from the Alumni Association of Augustana College.

Dr. Nyquist has been on the faculty of Southwestern College, Winfield, Kansas, the University of California, Santa Barbara, and from 1968-1992 was Professor of Music and University Organist at Santa Clara University where he was Music Department Chairman from 1969-1978.

Let George Do It...Again!

George Wright playing the Allen GW4

This is truly an historic recording. With Allen's sampling of George Wright's "Hollywood Philharmonic Organ" the GW4 has become the digital archive of that instrument. When the "HPO" was designed it was fitted with a reproducing system that stored every note, stop, and expression change played by Mr. Wright and made it possible to play back the full organ at any time. Through the use of those original player files BANDA has released a new CD of George Wright playing on a GW4. Many of the selections have never been released before.
