Notes and Editorial Reviews

The music of the Estonian organist-composer Peeter Süda (1883–1920) combines contrapuntal mastery with a virtuosic command of the Romantic organ. Süda’s brief life and his perfectionism meant that his output – exclusively for the organ – remained small, but it is beautifully crafted and highly expressive. This handful of original works is complemented by a mighty transcription of Liszt’s symphonic poem Tasso.
