[Raml's] program here is stylistically varied, ranging chronologically from Bach and Couperin to Rheinberger, demonstrating the adaptability of the Holzhey organ to music of different periods.
The Bach piece illustrates the organ’s plenum, while the ‘Pastorella’ exhibits the charm of some of the quieter registers.
Raml’s performances of the gentle Pastorale and exuberant Sortie seem to be suffused with an air of affectionate fun. Raml’s performances always show an awareness of the stylistic character of the music and coherence and a good sense of phrase and flow. Students of historic instruments will certainly want to acquire this document of a rare and important example of late 18th-Century organ building. © 2012 American Record Guide Read complete review on American Record Guide online
