Hollins - Organ Works
Timothy Byram-Wigfield (Caird Hall organ)
Designed by the blind organist Alfred Hollins, the Caird Hall instrument is one of the finest recital organs in the UK – as ideal a vehicle for Hollins’ own music as Byram-Wigfield is an exponent of it. Hollins effortlessly combines keyboard pyrotechnics with a quasi-orchestral approach to sonority. These works bristle with vigour, their swaggering confidence leavened with ingenuity and wit.
“It gleams, gives voice to some scrumptiously succulent sounds and inspires Timothy Byram-Wigfield to turn out performances of this wide cross-section of Hollins’s output which are utterly captivating and wholly engage with Hollins’s special blend of virtuosity, unashamed sentimentality and quasi-orchestral colour” Gramophone Magazine
“It is impossible to praise the choice of instrument or the performances on this
CD too highly … It is made more valuable by being sonically one of the best recordings of an organ I have heard for some time.” International Record Review
