On a new double-album of solo organ works by Leo Sowerby (1895-1968) and another prominent Chicago composer, Frank Ferko (b. 1950), versatile keyboard virtuoso David Schrader plays four of Sowerby's "greatest hits" for organ, including the monumental Symphony in G major, plus the rarely heard "March" from Suite for Organ, on the 68-rank Wicks Opus 2918 at St. Ita's Catholic Church, Chicago. The world-premiere recording of Sowerby's late Two Sketches is available on the album's digital editions. Schrader plays a diverse program of eight Ferko compositions, all world-premiere recordings, including several based on music by 12th-century composer and Christian mystic Hildegard von Bingen. Schrader performs on three noteworthy manual-action organs at the House of Hope Presbyterian Church, St. Paul, Minnesota, including the instrument for which one of the works was specially written.
