Comments:Played on the Fritts Op. 12 in Organ Hall, School of Music, Arizona State Univ. Biggers performs a demanding all-Bach program on one of the finest Baroque-style instruments in the US. The reverberation period of 4 seconds in a hall especially designed for the organ compliments superb performance practice and impeccable playing!
