JAV 107 On A Summers Evening Timothy Smith
Timothy Smith continues the tradition of top-notch organists at the Riverside Church with this superb recital performed there in 1998. An energetic rendition of Elgars "Pomp and Circumstance" opens this live recording with panache. The organs vast resources are fully displayed in repertoire ranging from Bachs C minor Passacaglia to the lovely "Aria" by Paul Manz to Reubkes fiery "Sonata on the 94th Psalm." Larry Kings "Resurrection" traverses many 20th-century compositional idioms in four programmatic sections Lament, the Rising, the Ecstasy, and Reflection and is a fascinating work.
