Critics' Comments

American Record Guide “Hohman here demonstrates music that might have been heard on this organ along with some that definitely was played on it. ... The program concludes with the last two movements of Vierne’s Third Organ Symphony. Hohman plays Vierne about as well as it can be played. He understands the style and he is a very facile player. ... Ernest Skinner lived for more than 25 years after he was pushed out by the Aeolian-Skinner merger ... I’m sure that he would have been delighted by this recording.” - Blakely


Organ Alternatives, Toronto, Canada “Frederick Hohman gives a first-rate performance of works contemporary with this organ’s installation. His flexibility as an artist is shown as he deftly moves from a theatre to classic style. His playing exudes musicality and expression on a very high level, with flawless technical ability. ... All in all, this disc is delight for the ears and the heart... The combination of repertoire and performance result in a very high recommendation.”


The American Organist " ...there are all too few players like Frederick Hohman who combine the necessary artistic affinity for the repertoire with the considerable technique such repertoire demands ... a marvelous instrument marvelously played and recorded. Do get it.” - John Ogasapian
