Critics' Comments

American Record Guide “As a rule I don’t especially care for orchestral music arranged for organ, but this is an exception.” - Metz


The Living Church ”The Mussorgsky transcription alone is worth the price of this compact disc. For more than 37 minutes, Trafka’s engaging and imaginative registrations bring this work to new life. Totally in control of the tonal colors of the mighty organ, he delivers this popular work with an appeal and verve that should win over anyone still dubious about the use of the church organ for orchestral transcriptions.” - Charles Christian Rich
