An orchestra is capable of the softest pianissimos and very loud fortississimo. Few single instruments has this ability. Pipe organs have this dynamic range. Organist Ken Cowan demonstrates this on the Kilgen Organ at Our Lady of Refuge Church in Brooklyn. The set of Variations by Franz Liszt are perfect to demonstrate this.
Ken Cowan is one of the top concert organists in the world today. His keyboard technique and musical skills are shared by a small number of elite organists. Ken Cowan is also a easygoing and humble guy – people love his down to earth personality.
The Brooklyn Diocese has one of the finest pipe organs in New York City. Daniel Roth, organist of Saint-Sulpice can be seen and heard playing the Final from Symphony No. 4 of Louis Vierne on the newly restored Kilgen Pipe Organ at Our Lady of Refuge Church in Brooklyn, New York.
