'Here is something truly spectacular. Hyperion's vivid recording of this magnificent instrument stands out as one of the best recordings of an organ currently available on CD' (The Good CD Guide)

'A treasure chest of sparkling jewels … polished and displayed to perfection' (Organists' Review)

Scherzo in G minor, Op 49 No 2
composer

Introduction  EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
The Italian composer Enrico Bossi (1861-1925) had something of a dual musical personality. He wrote operas and many other forms of music, but he was also a concert organist on the international circuit who died at sea returning from an American tour. Coincidentally, the phrase which establishes itself at the very beginning of his Scherzo has a wave-like motion whose energy gives this piece its impetus as it builds up from quiet flutes to full organ and back in a musical language and texture not too distant from that of Mendelssohn.
