This is the third release in Jane Parker-Smith’s series, Romantic and Virtuoso Works for Organ. Here she performs original works by Saint-Saëns, Wiedermann, Landmann, Bairstow, Parry and Gárdonyi, and two significant arrangements: Lizst’s Symphonic Poem Orpheus, in a transcription by Jean Guillou, and the Scherzo Symphonique by Pierre Cochereau, transcribed by Jeremy Filsell.

The Organ of the Catholic Parish Church of St. Gudula in Rhede, built in 1998 by Romanus Seifert & Sohn of Kevelaer Germany, has 52 stops, divided into 3 manuals and a pedal. The organ is equipped with a slider soundboard with a tracker action and electric stop control. Located behind the organ case are the Great organ, the Positif (expressive) and the Pedal organ. Behind this lies the Swell. The large wooden pipes of the Subbass 32’ are positioned at the back of the organ and these can be viewed from the entrance hall to the tower. 14 stops were taken from its predecessor (Horstenke, Telgte 1874 and Breil, Dorsten 1902/1937) as well as from the stock of historic stops kept by the Seifert workshop. Thus an artistically ‘universal’ organ came into being, with stylistic references to the German and French late Romantic period.

 

"In her choice of registration, articulation, and phrasing, and in her ability to live in the musical moment no matter how thunderous or, most to the point, quiet, Jane Parker-Smith once again proves to be outstandng."...
"The sound is up to the high standards demonstrated in Volume 1."


William Zargorski

Fanfare - January/February 2010

"Parker-Smith is known in organ circles as a performer who tackles the demanding literature and plays it with bravura....She is a force to be reckoned with."
