Notes and Editorial Reviews
Continuing its work with the rising stars of the early music world, CORO is delighted to release a brand-new recording by one of The Sixteen’s principal members, organist Robert Quinney.
The recording features a number of virtuosic works from Bach’s early years, including one of the most famous pieces of organ music in the repertory: the Toccata and Fugue in D minor, BWV 565. Robert Quinney is Director of Music at Peterborough Cathedral in England. As sub-organist of Westminster Abbey, he played at the Royal Wedding of Prince William and Catherine Middleton in April 2011.
"Alongside his impeccable performances, Quinney’s greatest achievement is to produce music-making which really communicates itself to
the listener." -- Gramophone
"The eloquently expressed accompanying notes by the performer himself beautifully complement an excellent recording, which is to be thoroughly recomended." -- International Record Review
"Perfect they may be, but intimate, too, the disc a pure unfolding of pleasure." -- The Times
"His playing is youthful and full of joyful spirit as he bounces Bach's (and his own) little motifs back and forth." -- Early Music Review Read less
