Organ at an Exhibition / Dominic Perissinotto
After his successful duo CD with trumpeter Anthony Pope, the West Australian-based organist, Dominic Perissinotto presents his debut solo CD for Move Records - Organ at an Exhibition.
This exciting new recording presents three magnificent Romantic works on one of Australia's finest pipe organs, the Grand Organ in the Basilica of St Patrick, Fremantle. The works of Guilmant, Schumann and Mussorgsky demand an instrument capable of projecting the wide dynamic and tonal contrasts. With 6 divisions (Great, Swell, Positive, Choir, Bombarde and Pedal) spread over four manuals and pedal, and used in combination with the smaller Transept Organ, there is virtually no end to the possible combination of tonal colours.
Sonata No. 1 in D Minor (Guilmant)
Fugue No. 4 on B-A-C-H (Schumann)
Pictures at an Exhibition (Mussorgsky, arr. Keith John)
Press Quotes“full of variety ... The organist demonstrates technical and musical mastery of the instrument and imagination in the choice of registration ... we are enriched by this listening experience.”
— Graham Devenish, In The Pipeline
