Critics' Comments

Christianity and the Arts “In each of the works on this disc, Laubach demonstrates a complete command of the music as well as the instrument and acoustical environment. The performances are exhilarating as well as musically satisfying.” - Morgan Simmons


Organists Review ... Mark Laubach, one of the country's most outstanding younger players, chooses a romantic and post-romantic French programme to display the fine Berghaus 1987 reconstruction ... Mark Laubach shows us just what it can do in his exceptionally musical and compelling playing. His programme is well-balanced, and shows ... just what a sensitive player he is. - Paul Hale


The American Organist “Laubach is a master of these spacious French classics. The IV 65 Skinner / Schlicker / Berghaus of 1987 sounds great. Franck‘s Fantaisie in C is the prize piece here.” - Vernon Gotwals


The American Record Guide “... Laubach demonstrates a good understanding of the style. His Tournemire is really outstanding in every musical way –“ - Metz - May/June 1998


The Organ This CD is a wonderful survey of the French Symphonic School ... Laubach plays with great panache and obviously has great empathy for the music of the French Symphonic School. Warmly recommended. - JR
