Opening with two marches from The Damnation of Faust, Hansjörg Albrecht’s articulation and interpretation are from the outset a tremendous advocate for the art of the organ transcription – of which series this disc is number 10 from the Oehms Classics label. The tonal and dynamic range of the IV/66 Goll instrument of 2000 adds clear-cut precision and ardent solo voices, yet Albrecht conjures ample romanticism throughout, not least through his intricate orchestral registration schemes and perfect playing. The live acoustics of the empty hall and the large dynamic range are well handled by the sound engineering here.
