Mozart called the organ the ďKing of InstrumentsĒ, and this release certainly showcases its majestic qualities. Mendelssohnís Organ Sonata No.1 was inspired by Bach, and exudes an air of gravitas and profundity whilst enjoying the organís variety of sonorities. Bach also influenced 20th-century composers Sigfrid Karg-Elert and Max Reger, both of whom followed in Bachís footsteps by moving to Leipzig. Karg-Elertís Symphonic Chorale is based on Jesu meine Freude by Johann Cruger, and on the notes BACH (B flat, A, C and B natural), while Regerís chorale-based Fantasia is a work of great virtuosity. The collection ends with a memorable sonata by Liszt-pupil Julius Reubke.
