I finished my new sample set, and five days later will be download. This is the Buckow-Rieger organ (III/51+Pedal) from Komárom. The organ is in the St. Andrew's church in the north of Komarom (Slovakia).
The organ was built by Carl Friedrich Ferdinand Buckow between 1860-64. The Prussian Buckow was born in 1801 in Danzig. He studied with masters Schinkel and Grünberg and studied German and English and French organ building. His workshop was in Vienna and he built 54 organ. The organ of Andrew church was the largest and most recent work of Buckow. Buckow died two weeks before the transfer of the organ. The romantic organ with 42 stops was one of the largest organ in Hungary. In that time there was no such organ in Buda or Pest nor in Pozsony (Bratislava). In 1899 the Rieger brothers expanded to nine registers and partially rebuilt the organ. Since then, no changes have been made. This is both gratifying because the organ is preserved in its original state, on the other hand it is sad, because the organ is a state of disrepair. (Most severely damaged the bottom octaves of the 16-foot registers and the mixturas. Unfortunately the nature of the errors does not allow for full virtually recovery.)
This is a German romantic organ minor errors, but unique sound. Now I present some works of Liszt, played by the church organist, István Nagy and a French friend of mine in the sample set.
