In Concert (I)

If the number of recitals played each year is any indication, the art of the pipe organ in these United States is doing spectacularly well. This week, we lift samples from four different concert programs. Nothing replaces the excitement of being there for a live performance, even the best stereo in the world can’t compare, but you’ll get the idea as we draw from the energy our featured performers put forth as we find them In Concert.
