Notes & Reviews:

In 1964, Bengt Berg was appointed organist of the Matteus Church in Stockholm where he remained until ha retired in 2000. His playing is characterized by a lively and airy articulation, as he combines rhythmic precision with a melodious expression that captivates and moves the listener. This CD consists of material from two 1974 vinyl records - "Faglarna Och Kallorna" and "Toccata" with the organ player Bengt Berg. The recordings are made by the legendary recording engineer Bertil Alving.
