Built in an extravagant Gothic style, Rochdale Town Hall is one of the most impressive examples of the civic pride of the Victorian and Edwardian eras. Positioned within is J.J. Binns’ fine organ, proudly displayed in three beautifully crafted wooden cases. At its high point, the British town hall organ tradition represented something entirely new and extraordinary, in social, mechanical, aesthetic and commercial terms; and the transcriptions made for these colossal instruments demonstrate remarkable syntheses of ingenuity, skill and ambition on the part of both organ-builders and musical arrangers. Here, following up on his celebrated 2004 exploration of orchestral overtures at the organ of the Kelvingrove Gallery in Glasgow, Timothy Byram-Wigfield offers another recital of overture transcriptions, and an ideal combination of player, music and instrument.

“Byram-Wigfield takes all in his unflappable stride, the opening carefully layered, the control scrupulous throughout, though almost to a fault when the sheer lucidity refuses to surrender to the heat of the moment…deftly characterised, well recorded and with lively liner notes by Byram-Wigfield himself, this is altogether a tantalising testament to the transcriber's art.” BBC Music Magazine, April 2016 ***

“An entire disc of overtures is a bit like enjoying a 7-course tasting menu, and here the results are well worth savouring... a tour de force.” Choir & Organ, March 2016 *****

“What makes this recital particularly appealing is the clarity of texture with which the Rochdale organ is captured…[the instrument] offers all the orchestral colours and dynamics you could wish for in this repertoire, no details of which are lost…apart from Byram-Wigfield's virtuosity and fluent registrations, there are the further bonuses of his own transcription of the Prelude to Act 1 of La traviata…and the rarity of Spohr's Overture to his 1823 opera Jessonda” Gramophone Magazine, April 2016
