Performer Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Flemish composer-organist Flor Peeters, organist of St Rombout’s Cathedral in Mechelen, was celebrated in his lifetime with a very successful concert career. Trained as a Catholic church musician, Gregorian chant and the medieval modes remained a lifelong inspiration for his music. Peeters was an almost exact contemporary of Maurice Duruflé, who shared his love of plainsong. But where Duruflé created impressionist soundscapes from his modal language, Peeters preferred sharper contours and brighter colors - Van Gogh, perhaps, compared with Duruflé’s Monet. This disc includes a wide selection of his works for organ.

"Although it must be a daunting challenge to reduce Peeters's vast organ output down to a 75 minute representative selection, Trinkwon has managed successfully to cover most angles...the playing is mostly top-notch, with the Tonbridge Marcussen ideally suited to Peeters's clear countrapuntal [sic] voice-leading." -Gramophone Magazine
