Great Organs of Japan, Volume 2
C. B. Fisk - Opus 110
Minato Mirai Hall, Yokohama, Japan
Hatsumi Miura, organ
The second in the Loft Recordings series "Great Organs of Japan" features the C. B. Fisk organ of Yokohama Minato Mirai Hall, showcasing the artistry of organist Hatsumi Miura. The largest American tracker organ in Japan, this instrument is ideal for the two most famous toccatas ever written for the organ, which "bookend" this program. Includes the rarely performed Adagio assai for organ by Beethoven, Yamada's "Red dragonfly" in an arrangement by Guy Bovet, and Bovet's own satirical French Baroque Noël. Hatsumi Miura is a well-known international concert artist and has been a featured soloist for several American Guild of Organist national conventions.
Extensive booklet, with full specification of the organ.
