WorksTheme varie (arr. for organ by William Dayas)
Organ Sonata no.1 in F major, op.5
Organ Sonata no.2 in C minor, op.7
ArtistsJan Lehtola (organ)
Dayas also arranged for organ the Thème varié for piano four hands by another forgotten American composer, Arthur H Bird (1856–1923), a further important addition to the late-Romantic organ repertoire.
Although no official reason for Dayas’s early death was given, reading between the lines of contemporary accounts suggests that he may have been an alcoholic.
Dr Jan Lehtola is one the most successful and progressive Finnish organists of his generation. He has appeared with the Finnish Radio Symphony Orchestra, Tapiola Sinfonietta, the Lahti Symphony, Tampere Philharmonic and Ostrobothnian Chamber Orchestras and the St Michael Strings. The conductors with whom he has worked include Kent Nagano, Juha Kangas, Sakari Oramo, Muhai Tang and Osmo Vänskä, amongst others, and the composers who have written for him include Kalevi Aho, Thierry Escaich, Naji Hakim, Paavo Heininen and Pehr Henrik Nordgren. This is his first for Toccata Classics.
Performed on the Walcker Organ of St John’s Church, Helsinki
