Krazy 'bout Kotzschmar
Format: COMPACT DISC
Thomas Heywood plays a program of organ transcriptions and organ classics upon the Kotzschmar Memorial Organ at Merrill Auditorium, Portland City Hall, in Portland Maine. Internationally acclaimed organ virtuoso Thomas Heywood enjoys an outstanding reputation as one of the world’s finest concert organists. As the first and only Australian musician in history to live as a professional concert organist, Heywood is celebrated as “an acknowledged master” for his spoken introductions and truly unique ability to make the greatest music of all time come alive on the King of Instruments. He has an amazingly comprehensive repertoire of over 5,000 works. Not confined to the “organ world,” Heywood’s phenomenal success in reaching out to the vast concert-going public has made the critics boast that he “reincarnates Edwin H. Lemare,” the greatest concert organist of the twentieth century.
