Classical Music Sentinel Gives Organ Polychrome a Rave!

Fantastic new review for Jan … Organ Polychrome recording in the Classical Music Sentinel:

“In this day and age of bits and bytes, midi files, miniaturization, computerization, digital sound creation and manipulation, and everything synthetic and disposable, it certainly is comforting to know that magnificent pipe organs like this Casavant Frères Opus 3875, 2011 located in the Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts in Kansas City, Missouri, are still being built. … if you have a good subwoofer, I'm sure you will be able to rattle your home's foundation now and then. For example, the Allegro from Symphony No. 6 in G minor by Charles-Marie Widor will run any sound system through the wringer. If you can play this one really loud without clipping your amplifier or melting your speakers, then you have an impressive system. All credit goes to the recording engineers at Reference Recordings for capturing every bit of air displacement this organ can produce. … It's obvious that organist Jan Kraybill, who is the Organ Conservator at the Kauffman Center, knows this organ's capabilities very well, and as such matches each piece's character to the best combination of stops possible. I envy her position. Sitting at that console, in command of all that power, must feel like sitting on a rocket.” —Jean-Yves Duperron, Classical Music Sentinel
