Description: Except for the Glazunov, you’ll find some very rare Russian organ repertoire here and the Bach, whatever actual reason it may have for being included, serves to highlight the dreamy, slow-developing styles of late Romanticism the Russians adopted across the board in these preludes and fugues - even Goedicke, the founder of the Moscow Soviet Organ School - no folksy and colorful “Socialist Realism” here! Konstantin Volostnov (Walcker organ of Riga Cathedral).
