Format: MP3 Music
There is something intriguingly simple about having one performer play one instrument that simulates the music of an entire symphony orchestra. The performer is Hansjorg Albrecht; the instruments are the Cavaeille-Coll-Mutin organ and Kleuker organ of St. Nikolai Church, Kiel, Germany; and the music is Wagner. Mr. Albrecht doesn't mean for his adaptations to replace full-orchestral versions of this material but rather as singular, workable alternatives to them. It's certainly fascinating stuff.

Of course, it helps that conductor, organist, and harpsichordist Albrecht knows what he's doing arranging and performing these Wagner transcriptions. Not only is he the Artistic Director of the Munich Bach Choir and Bach Orchestra, he's done organ transcriptions before, having already recorded albums of Wagner's Ring excerpts, Mussorgsky's Pictures at an Exhibition, Holst's Planets, and other such music in organ transcriptions. With that kind of background, we can expect him to produce good results.

So, Albrecht begins the program with the Overture to Tannhauser, very familiar material. The secret is making a single instrument substitute for a full orchestra, which he pulls off pretty well with his arrangements. Using all of today's modern concert organ's electronic setting devices and storage applications, he is able to duplicate quite a few different orchestral sounds simultaneously. The effect can often be startlingly impressive. It raises the question, though: If you're going to use the organ to imitate all the voices of an orchestra, why not just use an actual orchestra? Hmmmm. Well, I suppose, for one, it's cheaper; one performer, one instrument. But, more to the point, it's simply a novel idea and a unique sound.

A unique interpretation assisted by the technique of overdubbing to allow more orchestral texture than possible with 2 hands and feet

Great recording of Wagner's dynamic music played by Hansjorg Albrecht. Oehms (record label) continues to offer wonderful SACD music - and in particular, several pipe organ collections.
