Notes and Editorial Reviews

This CD brings together Poulenc's ever-popular Organ Concerto, Anton Arensky's luscious Variations on a theme of Tschaikovsky (written in memory of the composer just after his death) and a new organ concerto by Carl Rütti. Rütti's concerto offers ample proof why he is one of Switzerland's most popular classical composers today, with its rhythmic drive, melodic invention and skilful orchestration. His 'Blackbird Scherzino' movement showcases Rütti's love of birdsong, here brilliantly depicted by the organ together with two solo violins, temple blocks and cymbals. Martin Heini brings the organ part of the Rütti and Poulenc concertos vividly to life, and is accompanied subtly by the virtuosic State Philharmonic Chamber Read more Orchestra of Novosibirsk under Rainer Held.
