Today we finish telling you about our recent HRx releases, but these are just the beginning! We’ve got tons of exciting news to bring you in the near future!
Prof. Johnson brilliantly captures the spectacular sounds of the massive Schoenstein Organ of First-Plymouth Congregational Church, Lincoln Nebraska. Felix Hell is one of the most exciting and remarkable organists on today’s concert scene. His virtuosity and dazzling technique, and his profound understanding of the music is all the more remarkable in a musician just 17 years of age! He is gaining an international reputation as an up-and-coming superstar of the King of Instruments, and his gifts are fully on display in this recording of some of the greatest of the organ masterworks by Liszt (the great Fantasy and Fugue on Ad Nos ad Salutarem Undam, and the Prelude and Fugue on B.A.C.H.), Guilmant (Sonata No. 1), Vierne (Finale from Symphony No. 1) and Rheinberger (“Evening Peace”).
“Felix Hell is billed as an ‘organ sensation,’ and he is all of that…(this CD) is awesome to listen to.” — Rejskind, UHF Magazine 5/06
‘The newest CD from Felix Hell is a sonic blockbuster that may become a contender for status as one of the best organ recordings ever. . . For those who have been reading about Felix but have not heard him in concert, especially on a large instrument, THIS is the CD to purchase. . . Turn down the lights, crank up the volume and revel in it!” –Rich Blacklock, PIPORG-L
