Organ Music of Franz Liszt
Donald Sutherland, organist
Lively-Fulcher organ St. Patrick's Church, Washington, DC
The 1994 Lively-Fulcher organ includes significant amounts of pipework from the church's original 1895 Carl Barckhoff. Two 16-foot choruses on the manuals, plus a solo division with Bombarde's and cornet, and a full pedal with two 32-foot stops provide the gravitas required by Liszt's organ works.
Head of the organ faculty at Peabody, Donald Sutherland is a Liszt expert, and renders this repertoire with drama and excitement. The addition of Lizst's Cujus animan (a transcription Rossini's Stabat mater) for trombone and organ is a delicious bonus. Generous acoustics put it all together in this superb recording.
