ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Walter Strony is one of America's premier concert organists. He made his public debut in 1974 at the age of 18 and has since established himself as one of few organists equally at home playing both theatre and classical organ.

Mr. Strony has performed hundreds of concerts from coast to coast in the United States as well as in Japan, Australia, England, and Canada. In addition, he has performed at many conventions of the American Theatre Organ Society and the American Guild of Organists.

In July 2007 he performed the first solo organ recital to be presented in many years at New York's Radio City Music Hall for the American Theatre Organ Society's 2007 Convention. In June 2016, he was featured for the second time in an evening concert on the famous Wanamaker organ in Philadelphia -- the world's largest fully functioning pipe organ.

He is the only living organist to have been twice voted "Organist of the Year" by the American Theatre Organ Society - in 1991 and 1993. In 2011, he was inducted into the ATOS "Hall of Fame." He has performed with the Calgary Symphony; Allentown Symphony; El Paso Symphony; and Symphony Silicon Valley.

As an author, he is well known for his book "The Secrets Of Theatre Organ Registration", which has become the standard reference book on this subject. He is currently working on its expanded 2nd Edition, which is soon to be released.

In 2008, the Allen Organ Company commissioned him to design a new four-manual instrument - the Walt Strony Signature Series Organ.

Walter Strony was born in Chicago, and began music lessons at the age of seven. His theatre organ teacher was the famous Chicago organist Al Melgard, who for many years was the Staff Organist at the Chicago Stadium. His classical studies were with Herbert L. White and Karel Paukert.

This well-rounded musician brings a wealth of experience to any organ console. This experience has brought him the reputation of being one of America's most original and interesting sounding concert organists. As one reviewer noted - "Strony has become one of the rare breed of today's younger theatre organists to have developed a style uniquely his own. While looking backwards, respectfully to the masters of the theatre organ tradition, he manages to look forward with a refreshing approach in all his musical arrangements. It is a style that is inventive, harmonically interesting, and above all, right for today."

More, please! Walt Strony is fabulous and there's much more you should hear!
I am lucky enough to have most of Walt Strony's CDs, but it was difficult to acquire them and took many years. Here is an article with his discography at the end: https://www.wikiwand.com/en/Walt_Strony I am glad to see at least one of his recordings on cdbaby, but would really like to see *all* of them made available here. This one was his most recent made in 2013 and is a selection of favorites of the owners of the Wurlitzer theatre pipe organ featured here. If you like this type of music, you'll definitely find something to like in these selections. My favorites are the first and last ones showing the theatre organ and classical organ side of this fabulous instrument.
