Label: WILLOWHAYNE RECORDS
Format: COMPACT DISC
This release (the latest in Willowhayne Records' Experience series) showcases the organ in the abbey at Engelberg, Switzerland. Built by Goll and restored by Graf, this instrument comprises 9000 pipes, spread over four manuals with 137 stops. Among Markus KÃ¼hnis' teachers were Jean Langlais and Hans Vollenweider. This new album is a welcome departure from a traditional organ programme, being instead a collection of the artist's own transcriptions, all of which are played with astonishing virtuosity and are guaranteed to make the listener smile. There is something here for everyone from Rossini's William Tell Overture to Mexican dances.
