American Organist, Florence Mustric, a graduate of the Cleveland Institute and Oberlin, offers a program of colorful, most light-hearted repertoire. In brilliant sonics, her performances communicate with great impact and clarity. The historic organ heard on this recording, the first large mechanical-action organ in North America, was built in 1956 in Hamburg by Rudolph von Beckerath. Created in the tradition of the organs of northern Europe in the Baroque era, it is an exceptional example of centuries-old techniques of organ-building. The sound of the instrument is beautiful and transparent--powerful, yet warm, and has no doubt inspired more than one generation of organists.
