Omschrijving

This début recording from virtuoso organist, Tom Bell, showcases works by three twentieth-century Masters of the King’s, or Queen’s, Music: Sir Edward Elgar, Sir Arthur Bliss, and Malcolm Williamson.
Recorded on the magnificent Harrison & Harrison organ in Durham Cathedral, the recording features transcriptions of orchestral works by Bliss (who wrote no original organ music), together with original organ works by Elgar and Williamson.
The centrepiece of the recording is Williamson’s monumental six-movement Symphony for Organ. Rarely played, and here receiving its first modern recording on CD, this work is a pinnacle of the organ symphony repertoire, and demonstrates a kaleidoscope of vivid organ colour and technical demands in its 40 minutes.
