Reviews

"Montgomery is to be congratulated for winning not only the first prize, but also the audience prize, the first person in the history of NYACOP to do so...[H]e is a confident performer who conveys musical ideas not through flamboyance but through super-solid playing."- The American Organist

 

"There were many memorable events in the recent National AGO Convention in Chicago...The highlight for me as an organist was the incredible playing of Scott Montgomery, the winner of the AGO Organ Competition.  His sensitive approach to a chorale prelude by Georg Bohm, and his rock solid, beautifully-phrased playing of Bach's Fantasia and Fugue in g minor bodes well for the future of organ playing in our country."- Howard Slenk, Dean of the Grand Rapids AGO

 

"Great sense of drama....'Walls of Water' [Messiaen] was precise and strong.....You presented exactly what Messiaen asked for.  Excellent communication."- Christa Rakich, chair of the Organ Department at New England Conservatory

 

"Rhythmic control and self-assurance come across as very mature and well-grounded...Very compelling!"- Boyd Jones, Price Professor of Organ, Stetson University
