Victor of the 2017 Musashino-Tokyo International Organ Competition, Amanda Mole makes an accomplished debut on disc. Foregrounding her feeling for colour and contrast, Buxtehude’s G minor Praeludium and Alain’s Janequin Variations are adroitly variegated, the three excerpts from Reger’s op.129 Nine Pieces dispatched with understated but evocative poetry. Bach’s D major Prelude & Fugue (BWV 532) puts her pedal work to the test with pleasingly atmospheric results. Nico Muhly’s The Reverend Mustard His Installation is delightfully realised, Mole moving with involving nimbleness from pedals to lefthand and back again alongside a constant, right-hand semiquaver accompaniment. Bruhns and Messiaen complete a welcome introduction to a young talent to watch.
