Product Description

Seven historical organs in Sweden played by Naoko Imai

Japanese organbuilder Munetaka Yokota, who now works with Go-Art in Sweden, selected seven of Sweden’s oldest and most interesting organs for this survey CD. In the summer of 2003, he led a team of five to make this CD while touring the organs. Organist Naoko Imai plays idiomatic works (listed at www.ohscatalog.org) to demonstrate these beautiful instruments, five of which are comprised of one manual and two are comprised of two manuals (some have Pedal).They were built by immigrant organbuilders from the Hamburg area, or by their apprentice/successors. The nice package contains notes on the cultural and organbuilding history as well as photos and stoplists.
