Notes & Reviews:

Hansjörg Albrecht considers the organ to be the "Queen of the Instruments". He chose to record Wagner's Ring on the organ because it's in various scenes throughout the Ring Cycle and because the organ is the only instrument equal to a big orchestra. Albrecht uses a wide array of timbres and colors on the St. Nikolai organ to bring Wagner's works to life.
