Notes & Reviews:

"Stephan Engels plays this second volume of Karg-Elert's organ works on the 4-manual, 61- stop Skinner organ from 1930 in the Roman Catholic Cathedral in Toledo, Ohio. I don't know whether Karg-Elert ever heard this organ but I do know that he played quite a few like it, though few so good. It seems perfect for this music. The sketches and impressions that make up most of this program are among this composer's best work. Engels embellishes them with the colorful Skinner reeds that this organ has in abundance. The effect is enchanting. The Chorale Improvisation is turgid to the point of absurdity, but Engels polishes it off with such panache that I don't mind its pomposity. He is a superb player and makes this a stunning performance." -ARG
