Thomas Trotter, described by BBC Music magazine as ‘one of the greatest living organists’, in a virtuoso display of the full range of power and colour of the Royal Albert Hall organ – one of the world’s greatest concert hall organs.

This programme, recorded in overnight sessions, is right from the heart of the Victorian concert hall tradition, and ideally suited to the organ in the home of the BBC Proms.

Editor’s Choice Organists’ Review
‘If you love organ transcriptions and ‘town hall’ style recitals, you need not waste your time reading this review: just go ahead and buy Thomas Trotter’s Grand Organ Prom: you will not be disappointed….the Albert Hall organ sounds stupendous… the consummate artistry of Thomas Trotter… he sounds as if he is conducting the music, rather than playing it. Such is his mastery over the technical demands of the music that his performances give the impression that he is concerned with only the interpretation: the notes might be being executed by others.’

‘Thomas Trotter’s Royal Albert Hall disc is exceptionally well done….Scorching virtuosity…’ Choir and Organ July/August 2011
