Music Videos from our European Trip – Violins & Organs

I don’t shoot much video, but did shoot a half-dozen during the trip, of things that still photos don’t do justice to. Here are the 3 musical ones:

First, a machine that actuals plays several violins, from the collection at Siegfried’s Mechanisches Musikkabinett (Siegfried’s Mechanical Musical Instrument Museum) at Rüdesheim am Rhein.

Next, Uniworld arranged for a private organ concert for us at Saint Martin’s Church in Ediger.

And finally, the nave organ in the Cologne Cathedral. I’d been shooting vertical so long that I forgot that video doesn’t really work that way, but… 🙂 In person, that organ makes the earth move – astonishing sound!

The Cologne organ deserves to be heard in a better video – though it’s dark, this 8-minute one is the best audio I’ve found.

  1. Absolutely amazing music, what a treat.
    Thank You Murray. Two years ago, we cruised the Donau (Danube) and visited the Stephan’s Cathedral in Vienna which was a great experience.
