Belgium-born Benjamin-Joseph Steens is titular organist of the Cattiaux organ in the Saint Remi Basilica of Rheims and the Bernard Aubertin organ in Vertus. On these great instruments he recorded a recital with music by Bach and Buxtehude, the giants of the Baroque organ. The authoritative music critic Aart Van der Wal called Steens “a formidable organ player” on account of this recording, “both from the point of view of technique and interpretation.”
