Performer Composers

Notes & Reviews:

Stephen J. Ketterer started playing the piano at age four, switched to the organ 10 years later and has been actively performing ever since. Although it has been 15 years since he held a church position, he maintains an enthusiastic concert schedule, and happily donates his musical services for good causes in northwest Connecticut. He writes, "Perhaps because the instrument I play is in my home and not in a church or concert hall, I have found performing on the von Beckerath to be an intensely personal experience in many ways. This is, after all, an instrument I designed, in a room I designed, and when I perform, it is almost always for friends. So it might not be surprising that I have developed very personal associations with many of the organ works in my repertoire; this recording seemed to be a good chance to explore those. And rather than write about which cathedral each composer played in and for how long, I thought it would be interesting for the listener to have an idea of what flashes through my mind while I am playing each of these compositions (reproduced in the CD's program notes)."
