• An exceptional programme from two consummate performers, blending new arrangements of classical and baroque works with the premiere recording of Roger Steptoe’s Sonata for Trumpet and Organ.

    Graham Ashton is professor of Trumpet at Purchase Collage, New York, and as a performer over the past 25 years has given over 200 master classes and recitals in 21 different countries, recording for Signum, Nimbus, Virgin Classics and many more. Michael Matthes is a similarly esteemed performer – a tenured organist of the Cathedral of Troyes, France and a recipient of the prestigious French Ordre des Arts et des Lettres in recognition of his services to music.

  • Signum is delighted to announce the debut disc of the organist Colm Carey on Signum Records. Die Kunst der Fuge: is one of J.S.Bach's great contrapuntal masterpieces - extraordinary for each movement being in the same key. It is a remarkable cohesion of material and style; Bach, at the end of his life, seems to be in pursuit of a pure and abstract contrapuntal beauty, which encourages a retrospective foray into the works of past masters such as Palestrina and Frescobaldi. Playing the van Leeuwen/Flentrop organ in the Dutch Church, London, Colm Carey confronts and examines the nature of the music; its emotional impact and relevance in the context of the early 21st century.
  • David Goode performs a grand selection of some of Bach’s best organ works – including the famed Passacaglia and Fugue in C minor – providing modern listeners with a unique chance to hear Bach’s music as congregations of that period may have done. The Gottfried Silbermann organ of Freiberg cathedral is one of a handful of such 18th-century instruments (built during Bach’s lifetime) to have remained largely unmodified to this day. Bach’s work as an organ inspector shows that he tested and inaugurated a number of Silbermann’s organs in Germany and, although there is no record that he played this instrument, its sound is undoubtedly one that Bach would have recognised and composed for.
     Bach played Silbermann's instruments, so this world of sound – with its silvery mixtures, blazing reeds and characterful flutes – is authentic as well as utterly compelling in a cavernous acoustic … An exemplary introduction to some of Bach's greatest organ worksThe Times Best of all is the disc's crowning glory: a blazing performance of the Passacaglia, turbo-charged with immediacy and penetrating lucidity. Goode and Silbermann make a formidable teamBBC Music Magazine This is a very fine recording of the Freiberg Silbermann, with a lovely variety of registrationsChoir and Organ A superb Bach recital disc ... this is an excellent release in every way – if you seek just one organ disc for your collection, or to add one which may put others to shameMusicWeb International

  • Signum Classics are proud to announce Jeremy Filsell's second release on Signum Records - The Symphonies of Louis Vierne. Louis Vierne, one of the great concert organists and composers of the 20th century, is best known for his organ works. In each of the six Symphonies for Organ, Vierne explores a method of generating a symphony from just a few themes. He once stated that he was far more attracted by musical thematicism than by tone colour. Born virtually blind, Vierne showed an early aptitude for music. His works are said to reflect the vast and decorated architecture of Notre Dame in Paris. Filsell, famously untroubled by technical demands, concentrates on wringing every last drop of sonority in deeply-felt, idiomatic performances - BBC Music Magazine Sends shivers down the spine ... Filsell has done both Vierne and discerning organ-lovers a great service - The Times The recording is amongst the best of St Ouen, blending individual colour and clarity with acoustic swirl and overall character of this famous instrument - CD News
  • The two major organ works on these discs (his longest for organ) show Max Reger at the height of his powers; not only do they sustain a structural coherence over an impressive span, but they show an almost inexhaustible proliferation of invention.

    As well as the large-scale Variations and Fugue on an Original Theme and the Introduction Passacaglia and Fugue in E minor, this 2CD set includes a collection shorter preludes and fugues - the Five Easy Preludes and Fugues and two transcriptions of preludes and fugues by JS Bach from the Well-Tempered Clavier.

    The concentration necessary in the shorter works lends them, paradoxically, a feeling of greater substanceThe Times Compelling recitalsThe Northern Echo
