Format: COMPACT DISC
Randall Harlow performs his own transcriptions of Franz Liszt's 12 Transcendental Etudes for piano, and two of the Grandes etudes de Paganini, upon the Casavant-Schantz pipe organ of St. Andrew's Lutheran Church in Mahtomedi, Minnesota. Randall Harlow has long dodged conventional expectations. As a performer, he has eschewed the competition circuit, choosing instead to explore the outer reaches of the organ repertoire, from avant-garde contemporary and electro-acoustic compositions and forgotten works of the past to chamber music, concertos, and transcriptions. Performances have taken him across the USA, Russia, Germany, Greenland, and the UK. A specialist in contemporary music, Harlow was the first organist to be awarded a New Music USA Project, in support of his upcoming debut recording.
