Performer Composers

Notes & Reviews:

Friedhelm Flamme, known for his seven successful releases in CPO's Northern German Organ Baroque Edition, now takes a change of pace and releases an SACD with the complete organ works of Carl Nielsen and five organ pieces by Rued Langgaard. Of all the potential influences on Nielsen, the Danish offshoot of the German "organ movement" must have been the most important one; this path-breaking return to old baroque principles left its imprint on organ design during the twentieth century, and its ideals met with great resonance in Nielsen, whose anti-romantic vein likewise made itself noticeable in his contributions to the national song tradition and to the revival of the symphony. Flamme interprets these organ compositions of high art and imagination on the Muhleisen organ in the Bad Gandersheim Monastery Church.

Gramophone Magazine
I can't fault Flamme's playing, which is clean, neat and makes no musical case for these works above and beyond what's already there...the sound is vivid and, in places, quite arresting.

International Record Review
Friedhelm Flamme gives an utterly compelling performance, full of detail and held together over the single movement's cast span by the most judicious and organic choice of tempos, the registration at all times put at the service of the flow of the music
