Critics' Comments

Choir and Organ Edinburgh-based Simon Nieminski's programme features some bizarre juxtapositions, such as a Buxtehude Toccata followed by a Carlo Curley favourite... - Chris Bragg


Journal of Association of Anglican Musicians ”Simon’s playing is exemplary in taste, technique and style.“ - Victor Hill


The American Record Guide Dupré’s Chorale and Fugue, Opus 57 began as an improvisation... Nieminski plays this with assurance, and his interpretation compares favorably with Filsell's. ... Reger’s immendesly challenging Opus 57 will tax the patience of most listeners. In predictable style, the textures are dense and murky. Reger confided to its dedicatee Gustav Beckmann that this was his most difficult composition. If you do like heavy German polyphony, you'll love this, done with aplomb by Nieminski. - Metz, Nov/Dec 2009
