Editorial Reviews

An album of six incredible transcriptions for organ. Every note in the original orchestral scores has been faithfully duplicated in these arrangements for organ. The organ's greatest forte is its ability to be the most powerful and at times the most delicate sounding of all musical instruments. This album shows off that ability with astonishing boldness. After hearing this album, the listener might forget these pieces were not originally written for the organ. This album is without a doubt a thunderous 'pulling out all the stops' epic.

I was completely blown away when I heard this CD for the first time. I'm still amazed now in subsequent listenings. I don't know how Mr. Perschbacher was able to do it, but he has managed to create one the most awe-inspiring organ CD's I've ever heard.

I was disappointed with this CD-though the sonics were excellent--it sounded like an electronic organ I'm Sorry but I can't recommend-though the performances were fiery virtuoso by Josh !!

Format: Audio CD
Josh Perschbacher is listed as the PERFORMER for the selections, but a more appropriate title should be PROGRAMMER. What Mr. Perschbacher did was to transcribe the music into the MIDI interface of the organ, selecting which stops he thought would approximate the orchestral instruments in the original score. He strove to duplicate EVERY instrument in the orchestra, which turned out to be a mistake. Although the results are impressive, they are also muddy, as most organ stops don't translate perfectly to the instruments they may be imitating. A little judicious trimming would have helped this disc be better than it turned out to be. Just because you CAN translate every note from the orchestra to the organ doesn't mean you SHOULD do so.
