Humoresque “L’organo primitivo,” by Pietro Yon

I played this piece on an eight foot flute through the Choir division’s antiphonal speakers. Since they were far away I couldn’t hear them so I coupled them to the Great and added this little marimba so that I could play to that. The people in the pews heard the flute and some thought they heard a chiff coming from the front. This recording pretty much only picked up the marimba since the camera microphone was closer to the MIDI speaker.

This is a great piece for working on forearm rotation, relaxing the hand, not playing from the fingers and playing from the elbow.
