Notes & Reviews:

Although Hindemith was not an organ music specialist, his three Sonatas, with their mastery of counterpoint, clarity of form, bold harmonic language and deeply expressive treatment of melody, are recognized as among the great works of modern organ literature. The Two Organ Pieces are Hindemith's earliest works for the instrument, and the Interludien from his piano cycle Ludus Tonalis, here arranged for organ, form a sequence of beautiful and colorful fantasia-like character pieces.

American Record Guide, November/December 2014
The well-written liner notes give an overview of the compositions and Hindemith's conception of the organ as an instrument. The Rottenburg Cathedral organ, built in 1979 by the Hubert Sandtner Company, exhibits that kind of clarity. His approach to registration is remarkably colorful and full of character, as in the appropriately playful Interludium 3 and the sparkling contrasts of Interludium 5.
