Notes & Reviews:

"Thomas Berning performs on the 2-manual, 17-stop organ built in 1730 by Gottfried Silbermann in St George's Church in Glauchau, Saxony. It was restored in 1996-98 by Eule. The instrument is perfectly suited for this music. Considerable space was devoted to Silbermann organs in the last issue. Berning has acquired something of a reputation as a specialist performer on Silbermann organs, and this recording demonstrates that it has been well earned. This is outstanding playing. In the last issue I vituperated about the practice of using the 16' pedal reed through the Passacaglia. Well, Berning does it, and it sounds OK. Perhaps that is because the 16' reed on this organ has less clatter than many and is quieter than the bold 8' Pedal Trumpet that Berning adds near the end of the fugue. The chorale prelude on 'An Wasserflussen Babylon' is played with phrasing as sublime as I have heard for this piece. He plays the slow movement from the E-minor Trio Sonata (S 528) between the prelude and fugue known as The Wedge. The effect is like the Toccata, Adagio, and Fugue. I like it. Berning is thoughtful in his registrations, and this program shows off this lovely organ. I commend it with no reservations whatsoever." -ARG
