Krazy 'bout Kotzschmar!

Thomas Heywood 

The Kotzschmar Organ
Merrill Auditorium
Portland City Hall
Portland • Maine USA 

When it comes to large concert organs around the world it doesn’t get much better than 'The Kotzschmar' - the massive world-famous 5-manual, 50-ton instrument with nearly 7,000 pipes including Echo and Antiphonal divisions above the ceiling at the rear of the Auditorium.

With nearly all the works on this epic program edited or transcribed by Thomas Heywood, the 'mighty Kotzschmar organ has proved to be the perfect vehicle for the performance of these works.'

There’s no doubt that, once you’ve heard this recording, you too will become Krazy ’bout Kotzschmar!

Tchaikovsky’s Polonaise from Eugene Onégin
Bach’s Passacaglia and Fugue in C minor
