This recording features Stephen Tharp playing the Müller Pipe Organ at St. Bavo Church (Grote Kerk) in Haarlem, the Netherlands. The organ's case is likely one of the most photographed in the world. This instrument was played by Mozart, Handel, Liszt and Brahms, and remains the centerpiece of the biannual International Organ Festival, comprising the International Organ Improvisation Competition and Summer Academy. Stephen Tharp demonstrates the organ's brilliance and color with music spanning several centuries.


The release includes a booklet about the music, the instrument and the artist.
