Description: The return of this pioneering recording to the catalogue is very welcome indeed. Sorabji wrote for the organ with the same fluency, and many of the same compositional devices and aims, as he did for the piano, and intriguingly this work pre-dates, and prefigures, his large multi-movement piano works, which started to appear later in the 1920s. So here we have a passacaglia (81 variations), a fugue, and a multi-sectional finale with two cadenzas (one a stunning study for pedals alone), a toccata, and a monumental coda-stretto. Sorabji enthusiasts who missed this recording the first time around should not hesitate. 2 CDs. Kevin Bowyer (organ). Original 1988 release.
