WorksSymphony in D minor, op.48 (arr. Calvin Hampton)
Holberg Suite, op.40 (arr. Richard Ellsasser)
ArtistsThomas Murray (organ)
It’s not often that one hears recorded organ transcriptions of major works originally composed for symphony orchestra. But that’s what we get here, in a transcendental program of orchestral favorites played to breathtaking perfection by Thomas Murray, an internationally renowned organist and Yale professor.
Murray is the latest in a long line of top-ranked players who have made outstanding solo recordings in keeping with Delos’s long-standing tradition of legendary organ albums. He is held in particularly high regard among his fellow virtuosos for his mastery of the grand “symphonic style” of organ playing.
Fans of great orchestral classics will immediately recognize both of the works featured here: Edvard Grieg’s ever-popular Holberg Suite and César Franck’s monumental Symphony in D minor – in stunning transcriptions for organ: the instrument best suited to recreate an orchestra’s power, nuance, and variety of sonorities. Murray plays the magnificent Schoenstein Gloria Dei Organ, St Martin’s Episcopal Church, Houston, Texas.
