Description
Czech composer Petr Eben (1929–2007) was one of the 20th century's most significant and prolific writers of organ music. This collection includes his Ten Chorale Preludes, Momenti d'Organo, Hommage à Henry Purcell, and more. Of the latter he wrote: "The celebrations of the 300th anniversary of the death of Henry Purcell have inspired me to compose this music…. Some of Purcell's creative attributes have a particular appeal for me: his music is inventive and melodically interesting, and it includes many striking themes. The character of his music is joyful and often inspired by folk tunes (Scottish and Irish), yet at the same time one finds profoundly religious moods in his work. The harmonies are rich and original … and the vitality of his music is often strengthened by means of rhythmic devices."

"Eben's organ music is a major discovery, full of variety and invention…. This CD continues the barnstorming success of the previous two … a strong recommendation."—Fanfare

"A delightful programme of short pieces…. Eben could hardly wish for a more sympathetic or more virtuoso interpreter, and the recording renders the splendour of both instruments very vividly."—Gramophone
