Richard Strauss: "Also Spracht Zarathustra"

This page plays the popular classic, the Fanfare for Sunrise, from "Also Spracht Zarathustra" (Thus Spoke Zarathustra) written in 1896 by Richard Strauss. I have added the Timpani to the soundtrack, via MIDI.
It was composed more than 200 years after the building of the organ on which it was recorded - yet the organ suits this tune perfectly in my opinion.
Zarathustra was the subject of a philosophical novel by the philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche.

The organ is a virtual organ and is the organ of St Imre Catholic church, in Pusztaszabolcs, Hungary.
The Baroque style organ was built in 1778 by Pazicky. It has 12 stops between its two  manual divisions and two stops in the pedal division. Couplers allow the manuals to be connected together and the pedal to be coupled with each manual.
The arrangement is by the performer.
