 Simon Nieminski organ


 Following his landmark recording of Giles Swayne’s Stations of the Cross (RES10118), organist Simon Nieminski returns to the Resonus label with an engaging recital of organ works by Charles Villiers Stanford (see volume 1, Tom Winpenny, RES10104). 

 
Showcasing another of Edinburgh’s rich and varied crop of instruments, Nieminski performs on the unspoilt 1913 Brindley and Foster organ of Freemasons’ Hall, right in the heart of the city. Recently given a full restoration in 2009 by Forth Pipe Organs, this organ is almost unique as a complete, unaltered example of this significant and pioneering organ builder, and provides an ideal vehicle for authentic performances of this music.
 
Included in this enjoyable programme is Stanford’s first organ sonata, as well as the triumphant Marcia Eroica, Op. 189, and two world premieres in The Angelus, Op. 194, No.3 and his beautifully simple early Prelude on the ancient melody ’Jesu dulcis memoriae’.

"... the programme on this disc is nicely balanced, confirming both the quality and range of Stanford’s outut for the organ."

Jeremy Dibble - Gramophone magazine - September 2014


 "... Resonus is carving a niche for interesting and well-produced organ recordings, and we can hope that more of  Stanford’s music might be planned for future releases. "

Peter Lynan - International Record Review  - July-August 2014


"...Stanford’s mahogany-tinged sonorities and lean, lithe melodies are lent brightness and bite by a highly individual 1913 Brindley and Foster  ... with Nieminski’s supple, sinewy and sensitive playig perfectly attuned to instrument and music."  ****

Michael Quinn - Choir & Organ magazine - July/August 2014
