The Mendelssohn Organ, James Hammann, Organist
2CDs for the Price of One - [OAR-500]
$15.98

Exploring Mendelssohn's own preference of organ style as built by the Stumm Brothers, James Hammann plays an organ such as Mendelssohn chose to play when demonstrating his organ works for friends. Built in 1785 by the Stumm Brothers, the organ heard on this 2-CD set is newly restored in the fine acoustic of St. Ulrich Church in Neckargemünd, Germany. Especially revealing is the very slow speech of the early string stops, bringing a unique effect akin to the glass harmonica which had achieved substantial popularity in Europe. The effect is heard during many parts of the program and is striking in the Adagio movement of the F-minor Organ Sonata, Op. 65, No. 1. *
