The jury members included Laukvik, Bovet, Ablitzer and Heiniger.

Tobias Horn's compact disc recordings of romantic organ music, primarily focused on Reger and Vierne works, were released on the distinguished labels of Motette-Ursina and Ambiente. All aspects of the productions were very highly acclaimed by the reviewers, Roger Fisher's commentary published in the Organists' Review. Further artistic testimony is given by the numerous radio recordings made at the European broadcast stations of SWR, WDR and ORF.
