Performer Composer

Notes & Reviews:

This is the first volume in a series dedicated to performing and recording all of J.S. Bach's organ music by Todd Fickley.

American Record Guide, September/October 2015
Fickley's interpretations display considerable imagination and liveliness. They are not just literal regurgitations of the score. There is plenty of inflection of the rhythm and tempo and a variety of articulations depending on the character of the music. He takes a free hand in adding ornamentation to the music. Again, I find some instances more effective than others. Fickley is a native of Washington DC, where he studied with Bruce Neswick at theNational Cathedral before pursuing a graduate degree in organ at the University of Wales. He is organist of Falls Church Anglican and plays for the National Cathedral Choral Society and the Choralis Foundation, and has had a long association with the Washington Bach Consort.
