Synopsis

Album Description
This is one of only two commercially available digital recordings of a von Beckerath organ in the United States. Further, this von Beckerath organ is one of two known to be in this country. The performer and owner of the instrument, Stephen Ketterer, studied piano as a youth, and after experiencing tracker organ performances near his home, began a long love affair with this special instrument. He subsequently began study with Norman Andre, the organist at his local church. When the church?s organ began to age, a committee of interested parties was formed to see to its restoration or eventual replacement. Ketterer took a particular interest in this pursuit, and through his involvement developed a great knowledge of organ builders, and the sounds they create through their individual designs. After many years of study and performance, he has committed to disc this recital, featuring his von Beckerath, which he commissioned from builders in Hamburg. Recorded in his music hall at Edgewood, this program displays his skill at the console as well as the sound of this magnificent instrument.
