Notes & Reviews:

It would be hard to find an organist with more plaudits than Simon Preston. He has received a range of stunning reviews and awards from around the world. On of the truly great organists of our times performs works spanning two centuries. 19th century cornerstones of the organ repertory from Mendelssohn and Schumann are balanced with contemporary offerings featuring Jongen and George & Ira Gershwin in a broad range of music that perfectly showcases the vast palette of sonic sounds of the newly restored organ of the Royal Albert Hall.
