Listening to the Ballet Egyptien Played on the Organ

Listening to the Ballet Egyptien Played on the Organ

I posted on January 1 the page with the restoration of Fred Feibel’s arrangement of Luigini’s classic suite, Ballet Egyptien. I could not find a recording of Feibel’s arrangement, so I posted Part 1 played by Reginald Foort in his own version. Now, thanks to Lew Williams, I am pleased to add all four parts played by Quentin Maclean in his own version. Thanks, Lew!

These recordings, one on a Wurlitzer and one on a Compton, will give you an idea of how the music can sound on an organ. Although theatre organists such as Foort and Maclean are comfortable making their own arrangements, I think you will find Fred Feibel’s version absolutely effective.
