A contemporary of Max Reger, Hans Fährmann wrote monumental — and monumentally difficult — works for vast organs in which the display of contrapuntal mastery was a central feature. David Fuller plays the large symphonic organ of SUNY, Buffalo, Op. 95 of C. B. Fisk built in 1990, in this first recording of Fährmann’s 8th sonata and arrangements from Wagner’s Meistersinger.
