 Virgil Fox Soloist


It was serendipity, indeed. In September, 1976, America’s most renowned organist, Virgil Fox, was to play a series of concerts at St. Mary’s Cathedral in San Francisco. RR’s own ’Prof.’ Keith Johnson was invited to record everything, and he did, using his legendary hand-built three-channel analogue tape machine. Now, after years of complex negotiations, RR is releasing highlights from these concerts, featuring the mighty music of Johann Sebastian Bach.

Virgil Fox was always controversial. Like Vladimir Horowitz, Fox always gave highly personal interpretations of everything he played, and purists frequently railed at the liberties he took. But unlike many musicians found on organ benches, Fox was never dull. Invariably, he made one hear the music in a new way, and audiences roared their approval as you’ll hear at these live performances.
