Notes & Reviews:

Jane Parker-Smith releases her third volume of romantic and virtuoso works for organ. Here we see original pieces by Saint-Saens, Wiedermann, Landmann, Bairstow, Hubert H. Parry, Gardonyi, and two arrangements: Lizst's magnificent Symphonic Poem Orpheus, in a transcription by Jean Guillou, and the Scherzo Symphonique by Pierre Cochereau, transcription by Jeremy Filsell.

BBC Music Magazine
Light (and not so light) relief, as the virtuosic Parker-Smith continues he exploration of some unusual repertoire. The dazzling Cochereau Scherzo symphonique shows off both organist and an excitingly recorded organ in Rhede, Germany.

Gramophone Magazine
Once again Jane Parker-Smith has produced a high-class display of her impeccable musicianship, mixing well known repertory with several overlooked and neglected pieces. This generously filled disc makes a refreshing listening experience. Strongly recommended.
