Respighi - Poulenc - RheinbergerPeter King Bath Abbey OrganThe BBC National Orchestra of Wales Conducted by François-Xavier RothThis recording, released to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the new Klais organ in Bath Abbey, features three very contrasting works for solo organ and orchestra: Respighi’s opulent and luxurious homage to the eighteenth century and the Baroque suite, Poulenc’s dramatic, expressive and wild patchwork quilt and Rheinberger’s gloriously melodic and virtuoso nineteenth-century grand concerto with its echoes of Schumann.
EDITOR'S CHOICE IN BOTH BBC MUSIC AND GRAMOPHONE MAGAZINES (November 2010 issues)
'This is the modern digital recording which comes closest to the definitive Duruflé-Pretre version. It’s a similarly well- balanced piece of engineering, with telling interleaving of strings and organ textures, and punchy timpani. The Bath Abbey acoustic is astutely harnessed, blending amplitude with a pleasing element of clarity and focus.' BBC Music Magazine October 2014
