It is as though Felix Mendelssohn-Bartholdy himself were seated at the organ and invoking the sounds of his Paulus oratorio: this is how the new Genuin CD begins, with all tracks recorded on church organs in and around Leipzig. And it is not only because listeners feel themselves being transported back to the time when the composer lived, whose 200th birthday we celebrate this year and who was an inspiration to organists of his day and for generations afterwards: Rolf Lutz and Martin Schmeding paint a many-hued tableau of Mendelssohn's time, performing transcriptions, improvisations and original compositions, as was commonly practiced in the nineteenth century. Encyclopedic variety and admirable consistency—on original organs of Saxony!

"[...] a thematically well thought-out disc which not only introduces Mendelssohn’s music, but also presents the historicism of the 19th century as a phenomenon of its time [...] a CD which is interesting not only for organ fans." (Leipziger Kreuzer 6/2009)
