DISCOGRAPHY

 

‘The University of Birmingham has a fine new organ, splendidly displayed in this recording by Henry Fairs.’

The Observer 6 August 2017‘

‘The first Bach is a triumph.’

Organists’ Review December 2017

.'.. a great collection for those of us willing to allow a pipe organ to let its hair (air) down once in a while. Pun intended! ’

Classical Music Sentinel September 2017

‘... superbly played... with moments of sheer joy for the listener... beautifully recorded and presented. ’ 
Sydney Organ Journal Summer 2017-2018

 

'The music is certainly colorful, and his treatment is very satisfying. Regent has supplied outstanding sound. Henry Fairs proves to be a master of all styles in this recital.’ 
American Record Guide January 2018

'Fairs emerges as a top-notch performer. His registrations, tempos, and sensitivity to subtle nuances in phrasing and articulation are superb...  This is an outstanding release.'

 

American Record Guide, October 2007

 

 

Henry Fairs has twice won the Prix Maurice Duruflé at Chartres, so he is well fitted for this repertoire. He plays a restored Cavaillé-Coll organ... It can be heard at its most spectacular in the Toccata from the Suite, Op. 5, but its colour palette is impressive and is well handed by Fairs.
