Notes & Reviews:

This disc is a wonderful showcase for Claudio Dumschat's talents an the Arnold Schwartz Memorial Organ, built in 1988 by C.B. Fisk. Of particular interest are the contemporary pieces, especially the Joan Tower 'Ascent', her first work for the instrument, and the all-time favorite, Ive's 'Variations on "America"'.
