This 3 CD set contains the complete music written for organ by Felix Mendelssohn.

Mendelssohn was a great admirer of Johann Sebastian Bach (it was he who revived the Matthäus Passion and performed it for the first time since the master’s death in 1750), so it is no wonder that he (a Lutheran) wrote a substantial body for the instrument.

The first two CDs contain contrapuntal works, Preludes and Fugues in quasi Bach style (of amazing skill and emotional content!), whereas the 3rd CD is devoted to the 6 Grand Sonatas for the organ - a dazzling display of the instrument’s possibilities and his own creative powers, he really put his soul into these 6 masterworks!

The works are played by the young Italian virtuoso Giulio Piovani, on superb contemporary Italian instruments.

A valuable addition to the growing Brilliant Classics discography of organ recordings, of excellent quality and interest!
