With Mendelssohn's Six Sonatas for the Organ op. 65 a new era begins in organ music. They have maintained their function as role models for more than a century, continuing from Josef G. Rheinberger and Max Reger through Paul Hindemith. "Johannsens technichal mastery and formidable accomplishment on the organ ... is evident throughout this recital, and his imaginative registrations, which never obscure the principal thematic interest, keep you listening."
