Felix Hell, the German Wunderkind born in 1985, plays recital favorites on the 1988 Thomas Kuhn 3-56 organ in the ancient church (9th century) of St. Justinus in Frankfurt-am-Main/Höchst. Hell, who began playing concerts outside of his native Germany at age 8 and taking first prizes in various competitions at the same age, is acclaimed not only for his youth but his prodigious technique and innate musicality.
