nosagcd 2122 - NILS LARSSON -

The Högalid Church in Stockholm has three fine organs: the gallery organ, built in1966 by the Hammarberg Organ Company, and a choir organ, built by Mads Kjersgaard from Uppsala and inaugurated on May 25, 1984. At the start of 2005, a small continuo organ with three voices, built by the organ maker Janis Kalnins from Ugale in Western Latvia, was added.

Nils Larsson has been organist at the Högalid Church in Stockholm since 1992 and is considered one of the finest in improvisation in different styles and idioms. On this CD you hear him make astonnishing things both in his own contemporary right as well as in the moods of e.g. Buxtehude and even older masters.

The program as a whole really gives a splendid view over the timbres and colours of the three organs - music spanning from Frescobaldi over J.S.Bach to contemporary Swedish composers like Olof Olovsson and Stig Gustav Schönberg.
