Notes and Editorial Reviews

Bach and Händel in arrangements by Max Reger, Alexandre Guilmant, and Sigfrid Karg-Elert: these are the top names that we have brought together for you on this fascinating CD meeting of baroque and romantic musical minds. The orchestral splendor of the romantic organ was what moved composers to arrange their favorite works of earlier times for the majestic sound of this king of instruments. The genius of Bach and Händel was to radiate in the new light of contemporary organ design, and cathedrals would resound with baroque grandeur.
