Blakely
American Record Guide, August 2001

"For the listener who owns high-end audio equipment this offers a great opportunity for blowing the dust out of the sub-woofers."



Ralph Blakely
American Record Guide, August 2001

"...It must be noted that there are many organ enthusiasts whose concern for stylistic fidelity is less than their enjoyment of the sensuous sounds from organs that are grand and loud. For them this recording is a must-buy. This 72-stop, four-manual organ built by the Rieger firm is magnificent. It was carefully planned and engineered. The builder incorporated in it substantial pipe work from a 19th century organ. The new and old have been skilfully blended. Rubsam is a facile player, and if one were to think of this as a demonstration recording for this organ it would be deemed effective. The stop action works quickly and changes are frequent. The technical aspect of capturing this huge machine in its lively acoustical environment was well executed. For the listener who owns high-end audio equipment this offers a great opportunity for blowing the dust out of the sub-woofers."
