Mendelssohn Complete Organ Sonatas

$16.98

William Whitehead performs all six of Mendelssohn's Organ Sonatas on the Ballroom Organ at Buckingham Palace, offering an oft overlooked perspective of performing Mendelssohn's music. Mendelssohn concertized throughout England, and visited with Queen Victoria and Prince Albert on numerous occasions. Although Prince Albert (an organist himself) had the 1825 Lincoln organ moved to Buckingham Palace just three years too late for Mendelssohn to play it, John L. Speller of The Diapason "[recommends] this recording as a first-rate example of how Mendelssohn's organ sonatas might have been played in Britain in the middle of the nineteenth century."*
