Siegfried Idyll, WWV103

composer
arranger

 
Wagner’s Siegfried-Idyll is no less heroic than the Meistersinger Prelude, but, instead of bustling Nuremberg, it is set in idyllic, pastoral surroundings, as might be expected of a work originally scored for only fifteen players. As with the Brahms chamber pieces on this disc, the success of an organ performance of the Siegfried-Idyll depends not on brilliant choruses or powerful reeds, but on the quality of individual solo ranks and the colours produced by their combination.
