Notes & Reviews:

Swiss organist Martin Heini studied in Lucerne and Arhus and was a prize winner at the international organ competition in Lucerne. He is the director of music at the Church of St. Katharina in Horw and artistic director of the concert series held there.

American Record Guide, May/June 2013
Tongues of Fire is a work for solo organ that lives up to its name, alternating between flickering mischievousness, thunderous declamation, and quiet introspection in its brief seven minutes. The Arensky does get a sweet, nostalgic, lyrical performance that's almost as expressive as the classic Barbirolli recording. It gives the orchestra a chance to shine, and after the powerful Rutti pieces, it cleanses the listener's aural "palate" before diving into the Poulenc. The Poulenc concerto should be performed more often than it is, and the playing here both from the soloist and the orchestra is first rate.
