Notes & Reviews:

"Keith John is a concert organist known for his technically demanding and inventive programs. While this program is not especially inventive, it is a tour de force nonetheless... This is a splendid performance, one that should appeal to those who enjoy Elgar and have never heard the sonata." - Metz, ARG

'This is one of the most exciting organ CD's I have heard for a long time... Keith John gives us an Elgarian recital that displays his dazzling virtuosity and ability to capture the orchestral qualities of a well-known favourite... His rhythmical and brilliant technique stands out as a beacon for others to follow... this for me is one of the finest CDs I've heard' (Cathedral Music)

'a technically brilliant performance that employs the instrument's full range of colours and sonorities' (BBC Music Magazine)

'it is frankly spell-binding from the very first note... the depth of interpretative insight shown fully justifies the endeavour, remarkable as that achievement is in itself. Do listen' (Organists Review)

'one gladly salutes Keith John for his virtuoso performances... A very fine achievement' (Gramophone)

'It's a tribute to his technical mastery and imaginative choice of registration that the 'Enigma' can be transformed into such a compelling solo for one man's hands and feet' (Classic FM Magazine)

'a very convincing account of a far too-little-known masterpiece... This is a real performance which I have been very pleased to hear' (International Record Review)
