The Kotzschmar Organ - Merrill Auditorium
Portland City Hall - Portland, Maine, USA
When it comes to large concert organs it doesn’t get much better than the "Kotzschmar" - the massive world-famous 5-manual, 50 tonne instrument with nearly 7,000 pipes including Echo and Antiphonal divisions above the ceiling at the rear of the Auditorium!
With nearly all the works on this epic programme edited or transcribed by Thomas Heywood, the "mighty Kotzschmar organ has proved to be the perfect vehicle for the performance of these works."
There’s no doubt that, once you’ve heard this unbelievable recording, you too will become "Krazy ’bout Kotzschmar!"
Programme highlights include:
Tchaikovsky’s Polonaise from Eugene Onégin
Bach’s Passacaglia and Fugue in C minor
Mozart’s Rondo from Horn Concerto No. 4
Guilmant’s First Sonata - Symphony for Organ
And much more!
