Last week and a few time before, I referenced the sometimes not so friendly relationship between E. Power Biggs and Virgil Fox. Both virtuosos, Biggs was a traditionalist and Fox was a showman, with more than just a touch of flamboyance.
‘I loathe what that man stands for.’
– Virgil Fox, a professional organist, about E Power Biggs, another professional organist.
‘Who Is the World’s Best Organist? Ask Virgil Fox’, Sunday (NY) Times, 29 September, 1974
Me, I stand with the Biggs crowd, but I’ll acknowledge that Virgil Fix was a master of his craft. Both links, above and below are quite interesting and educational. I encourage you to peruse them.
