Ken Cowan In Concert
on the 1951 Aeolian-Skinner, Opus 1174
First Baptist Church, Longview, Texas
Recorded live in concert by Michael Barone of American Public Media's Pipedreams, this is the first commercial recording of the legendary 1951 Aeolian-Skinner at First Baptist Church, Longview, Texas in over 60 years (since Catharaine Crozier's historic recordings of the Sowerby Symphony and her album of music by American composers). Recorded during the 2012 East Texas Pipe Organ Festival, this stunning recital is beautifully captured here, with a total playing time of 70 minutes. The program consists of Mendelssohn Allegro maoderato, e serioso from the First Sonata, Saint-Saens Danse Macabre, Durufle Suite, Rachel Laurin's Etude Heroique, Ireland Elegiac Romance, and Reger Fantasy on "How Brightly Shines the Morningstar." Order your copy today. You won't be disappointed! This was an absolutely electrifying performance by one of our greatest living organists.
