WorksFantasia and Fugue on 'Ad nos, ad Salutarem undam' by Meyerbeer, for piano 4 hands, S624
Organ Sonata in D minor, op.65 no.6
Organ Sonata on the 94th Psalm
ArtistsStephen Cleobury (organ)
This album brings together the first ever surround sound recordings of the great Harrison & Harrison organ set within the chapel of King’s College, Cambridge.
Performing three popular virtuosic works for the organ, Stephen Cleobury, Director of Music at King’s College, demonstrates the power and flexibility of this great instrument. Originally built in the 19th century to replace an earlier instrument, the organ has been modernised several times and is due for a major renovation in 2016.
Liszt’s dark-hued 'Fantasie und Fuge über den choral Ad nos, ad salutarem undam' is based on a theme from Meyerbeer’s grand opera 'Le Prophète'.
Julius Reubke’s magnificently gothic 'Organ Sonata' on the 94th Psalm explores the theme of judgement. Considered one of the pinnacles of Romantic repertoire, and thought to have been inspired by Liszt’s 'Fantasie und Fuge über den choral', this piece is a test of both the organ’s versatility and the player’s pedal technique.
The album concludes with Mendelssohn’s Organ Sonata No.6 in D minor. Based on Bach’s chorale 'Vater unser im Himmelreich', this piece demonstrates Mendelssohn’s consummate mastery of organ textures.
