Editorial Reviews

Setting aside Gustave Leonhardt's excellent reputation as harpsichordist and conductor, the Dutch-born musician has been one of the most important organists of this century. His large expressive palette and wide stylistic range serve him well throughout this two- disc set. In the early '70s, he recorded these selections on some famous instruments located in Austria, Switzerland, and the Italian Tyrol. They include a 1559 organ owned by the Trapp family, the organ of the parish of St. James in the Swiss village of Compatsch, a baroque-era instrument in Wilten at the Premonstratensian Abbey, a rococo-style organ at Stams, a baroque organ from Muri in the Aargau in Switzerland, and an instrument at the Cistercian Abbey near Linz in Austria, built in 1746. --Gwendolyn Freed

This is an excellent recording, but the point of my review is this -- anyone interested in obtaining this disc should first take a look Sony's box set, which is a much better deal (spectacular, actually).

Gustav Leonhardt -The Edition [Box Set] is a collection of 15 discs, originally released by Sony or one of the Sony family companies, which have now been packaged together and released in a box, for a remarkably low price (at the present time). It includes the disc shown on this page.

I've reviewed the box set itself, so you can take a look at the link above to see the full listing of recordings included.
