THE ORGAN OF OSLO CATHEDRAL In the middle of recording the collected organ works of J. S. Bach, cathedral organist Kåre Nordstoga has found the energy to release an album of gems for the organ from Oslo Cathedral. “The Organ of Oslo Cathedral” is intended as a richly varied souvenir CD, showing off the full breadth of the cathedral’s Ryde & Berg organ built in 1998. The CD features great works of Bach and Reger, two composers who over the years have been cornerstones of the cathedral’s organ tradition, not least due to the influence of former organist and choirmaster Arild Sandvold. Sandvold’s variations over “Eg veit I himmerik ei borg” can be heard on the recording. Nordstoga’s own organ version of Grieg’s “Holberg Suite” has been performed on a number of occasions, and now — after many requests — it has found its place on a recording. And with the inclusion of two exquisite samples of Swedish and Norwegian traditional music, together with a meditation of Charles Gounod, we see the contours of an album of organ music where many traditions meet. REVIEWS «Norstoga delivers rock-solid, clearly recorded performances on a splendid 1998 Ryde and Berg organ.» Delcamp – American Record Guide review_LWC1103_American_Record_Guide.pdf
