Hindemith's contributions to organ literature were small, but that's not to say they were negligible. The Two Pieces are succinct studies that show Hindemith's curiosity about the instrument, though the ideas are not fully formed and they might slip by if not given close attention.
Kay Johannssen (Organ) Joan Lippincott (Organ) Bach’s Trio Sonatas for Organ from Johannsen and Lippincott. Recordings Part 1 Part 2 Feedback. Lionel Rogg brings out these feelings in an exceptional performance which perfectly blends the sections together while providing distinction among them; the most swirling passages sound like all energy is being sucked up by the man. Joan Lippincott doesn't provide the wealth of expressiveness of Rogg, but hers is the most exciting version I've heard; in her swirling passages, she's whipping up a frenzy.
Hindemith: Piano Sonatas (2013).
Lionel Rogg (born Geneva, April 21 1936) is a Swiss organist, composer and teacher of musical theory. He is best known for performing the music of Johann Sebastian Bach, whose complete organ works he has recorded three times. At 15, Rogg took charge of the Geneva St Boniface organ. Later, at the Conservatoire de Musique de Genève, he studied under Pierre Segond (a pupil of Marcel Dupré).

The Flentrop organ is clear with the voices independently audible, yet when necessary the sound has mass and depth. He succeeded in living only three years longer than Bach. So, those who know the jocular earlier organ concerto may be disappointed to find this one at times anguished and tense with echoes of Karl Amadeus Hartmann. The fun has turned sarcastic and satirical, but the cleanness of the harmonies remains as does the assurance of a beautiful future to come.
