A master of church organ. 

The organist Anders Bondeman is a living legend in the Swedish organ world. 

The CD "The Great Organ of St Jacobs 'Church" is recorded in St. Jacob's Church in Stockholm, which has one of the most melodious organ (built in 1976 after the connotation standpoint from the previous organ). 

Bondeaman plays like an archangel descended to the manuals and pedal. This applies not least in the concluding nine improvisations of Bach. Or when he plays Bach for the notes, including six of his chorales. 

Sound Doyen Bertil Alving is a producer and recording engineer. Although he is a legend in his field. 

Lars Landström, Tidningen Allehanda


"This is one of the most artistically and technically sound best organ recordings I've ever heard."

The organist Anders Bondeman is a legend in the Swedish music life. He is the one that introduced the art of improvisation for organ in Sweden in modern times, having won the prestigious international improvisation competition in Haarlem in 1965.


Through concerts in Sweden and large parts of Europe and the U.S. Anders Bondeman spread this art form further on. Many are also the students who took part of his knowledge during the 30 years that Bondeman was a teacher of improvisation at the Royal Collage of Music in Stockholm. As many years he was organist at St. Jacob's Church in Stockholm. It is also at this magnificent instrument that Anders Bondeman have recorded this CD together with Bertil Alving. The CD contains some of the organ literature's most popular works, an exciting contemporary Swedish piece and finally nine improvisations over BACH.
