Notes & Reviews:

Robert Schumann never specifically wrote music for a church organ. Yet his lifelong admiration for Johann Sebastian Bach and his fascination for a then newly invented, now obsolete instrument, the Pedalflugel (a piano with a pedalboard attached) led him to compose three sets of works for this instrument, here recorded on a church organ. Organist Roberto Marini, one of Italy's most accomplished organists, plays the Mascioni Organ of the Abbey of St Thomas the Apostle, Pontevico (Italy).

BBC Music Magazine, July 2014
Not all top-drawer Schumann, this music originally written for pedal piano nevertheless includes several gems. The Schumannesque hallmarks of the Four Sketches are well captured on an Italian organ.
