I am happy to announce my recording of the magnificent 1965/2013 Flentrop organ in Shirley Recital Hall at Salem College (Winston-Salem, NC, USA) with its exceptional acoustics! The recording features works ideally suited for this organ, two of which were performed on the dedicatory recital in 1965 by Fenner Douglass. Composers featured on the CD include Bach, Buxtehude, Hindemith, Walcha, and more.
CDs will be available for sale locally in the Winston-Salem, NC area at the CD Release Recital as part of the First Annual Salem Bach Festival, Friday, September 30, 2016, 8:00 PM, in Shirley Recital Hall, Salem College. For more information on this recital, please visit Inaugural Salem Bach Festival. Admission is free.
