More Psychic Income

I'm not talking about the IU football team's surprising victory over Penn State today, but a terrific recital this evening at Auer Hall by the prodigiously talented German organist Martin Schmeding. In addition to the usual repertoire of Bach, Buxtehude, and Mendelssohn, Schmeding treated us to a virtuouso piece by the contemporary Japanese composer Akira Nashimura and the beautiful Sonata in C Minor by nineteenth-century German composer Julius Reubke. The latter piece is familiar to organ music aficionados, and has been widely recorded (including by Schmeding, although his recording is not so easy to find in the US). I highly recommend a listen.
