Review By Benjamin Epstien,,

This CD represents Naxos' promising attempt to embark on another anthology devoted to organ music, this time the organ works of Franz Liszt. Vol. 1 of this series is a balanced program of the composer's lesser and better known works... Prof. Rothkopf well demonstrates his skill as both a pianist and organist (the latter evidenced by numerous prizes and study with Marie-Claire Alain). The hallmark of his performance is "playing out the space" while bringing out the orchestral colors, dynamics, and tempos that make this an enduring piece...The program ends with another Liszt warhorse, the variations on Weinen, Klagen, Sorgen, Zagen. Again, this is a work for piano that Liszt later arranged for organ (1863) - and again, Prof. Rothkopf does not disappoint. Especially worth mention is
