Religious music done in a new way: organ, chorus and modern orchestra. This is stunning music, arranged and performed by masters, and the emotional effect is joyous. The sound is clear, and the sheer depth is unequalled. A triumph!

Percy Grainger Plays Schumann and Liszt
This and the next two LPs are made from reproducing pianos: something like a player piano, but storing not just keystrokes, but dynamics and pedal actions. These modified grand pianos were installed in a studio, and recorded in modern stereo.
Grainger was himself a famous composer, but here we hear him playing with a light touch and astonishing subtlety. This disc is at once interesting and pleasing to the ear. Get it!
