Notes & Reviews:

This is a major new recording of the legendary Wanamaker organ at Lord & Taylor in Philadelphia. The program consists of major symphonic works transcribed for organ, performed by the Wanamaker Grand Court organist Peter Richard Conte in a program recalling the most famous "after-hours" concerts given at Wanamaker's years ago. This is only the second recording of the fully restored instrument, which is the world's largest functioning organ.
