Notes & Reviews:

"Not to put too fine a point on the matter, this is a beautiful record... These concertos display Rheinberger's keen sense of the organ's sonic possibilities. The instrument doesn't naturally blend with those in the orchestra - not even the winds, whose attack is different - but here we hear the organ and orchestra functioning now as equally matched partners, now as gentle antagonists in the concertante style... Praise once again goes to Naxos for taking a relatively obscure recording - this one originally appeared on the Sonoris label - and bringing it the wider circulation it deserves." -MusicWeb
