Misc. Comments

Seems to be the fantasia in D minor performed by Martin Rost and Pavel Cerny on a Thorofon CD from 1998 (Romantische Orgeln 5) (at least, the sound sample provided matches a passage on page 6 of the score exactly). Based on the music sample provided at and at however, the "fantasia in D minor" for organ 4-hands by Hesse performed by Marc and Marguerite Adamczewski on an EMA CD is probably a different work.

There is a fantasia no.6 in F minor, Op.57 published around 1835 also so this would be one of a series of such works by him (Op.35 is also for 4 hands.)
