Performer Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Prominent musician Leonid Roizman was a key figure for domestic organ music of the 20th century. A student of Russian organ school founder Alexander Goedicke, Roizman also applied much of his effort to teaching and brought up dozens of students. This set includes recordings made in the 1960s, when the organist's performing activity was in its prime. In addition to the most popular compositions such as Toccata and Fugue in D minor and Passacaglia in C minor, the set also features some lesser-known preludes and fugues, the Little Harmonic Labyrinth, and choral preludes.

A double-disc set of recordings of J.S. Bach's organ works performed by Leonid Roizman. This set includes recordings made in the 1960s when the organist's performing activity was in its prime. Roizman's performing style was distinguished by virtuoso organ technique (his teacher Alexander Goedicke is considered a founder of the Russian organ school), expressive performance imagery and noble interpretative austerity.
