Notes and Editorial Reviews

The artists write about this CD: "The title of this CD refers to the main composition on the disc, the cycle Windows by Petr Eben based on the composer's impressions of a series of Windows by Marc Chagall. The same title also covers our selection of other wonderful 20th century works for the organ and trumpet. The selection we present is not supposed to be an overall view of the music written for this combination of instruments in our century, but rather a more restricted view which represents our own individual tastes and preferences. In some of the music the trumpet is used as a brilliant solo instrument, and at other times integrated into the sound spectrum of the organ like an added stop. Sometimes, the organ is used in a way similar to Read more the basso continuo of the Baroque period, and at other times it is supposed to represent a complete orchestra. The organ can also accompany, be equal to, or even dominate the solo trumpet." This is not your typical organ/trumpet CD. The program is interesting and new. It should have appeal to the customer who is looking for something unusual in the way of contemporary chamber music. Read less
