|R.Schumann, Complete Organ Works,|
This new recording gets mention because I am surprised just how much more enjoyment I derive from it. Registration, organ sound, recorded sound (a little less reverb), and even the playing capture my imagination much more vividly. The Sketches have a tighter, less 'grand organish' character. The Canonic Studies are calmer and linger lovingly, the Fugues are clear, precise, and work toward cumulative effect. The Rothkopf recording is recommendable for the works themselves, but Hospach-Martini also for the interpretations. A fairly clear choice between the two if you haven't yet rushed out to get your Schumann-Pedal-Piano fix in this anniversary year.
