VON BECKERATH AT HOME
Johann Sebastian Bach, Maurice Duruflé, Cesar Franck, Louis Marchand, Camille Saint-Saens, Louis Vierne
SHAYNE DOTY, organ
"...this [von Beckerath] has a cosmopolitan character. The organ's sound blossoms in the ample space. The foundations sing with warmth, sheen and penetration. The reeds are bold and colorful. Mr. Doty plays meticulously and with elegance".
