Organists' Review

“David Butterworth performs a compelling programme of fine music expertly chosen to demonstrate the individual character of each organ. … Butterworth plays fluently and intelligently … a steady, natural, lively, musicianship is most reassuring, revealing composers' styles well. … The CD sounds very well.”

Nottingham boasts a fine collection of organs of richly diverse character. Towards a Modernist Organ showcases some of the city’s best instruments, including the magnificent J.J. Binns organ of the Albert Hall and the stunning Marcussen organ in the church of St Mary.

David Butterworth’s compelling programme ranges from modern Danish pieces by Madsen and Eriksen (never recorded before) that work perfectly on the Marcussen organ, to major works by Parry, Ireland and Hakim for the Binns. Delicate pieces by Gibbons, Tomkins and Stanley allow the historic instrument at Wollaton Hall to sound at its best. Bonus tracks by Bach, Buxtehude and Walther show off an early organ by von Beckerath in the German Lutheran Church and a model organ by Grant, Degens and Bradbeer.

These fine performances are featured on both CD and DVD (on which they are in full 5.1 surround sound). As well as the filmed performances, the DVD also includes a 15-minute film exploring the history of the five organs. The inspiration for the film’s title comes from the stunning ‘modernist’ Marcussen organ in St Mary’s Parish Church. David designed this organ, and was also involved in the restoration or installation of the other organs featured.

The DVD is a filmed performance of the music on the CD, plus seven additional tracks. The DVD features full 5.1 surround sound. To this is added a fifteen minute documentary and an illustrated booklet with details of all the organs.
