Notes & Reviews:

On this CD from LAWO Classics, the organist - Harald Rise, Professor of Church Music at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology in Trondheim - performs most of the organ works of composer Kjell Habbestad, which were written during the period 1976 - 2007. The compositions include works commissioned for the dedication of new organs, works dedicated to performers, and works composed in honor of other composers. The largest composition is a grandly conceived Introduction & Passacaglia based on themes of Norwegian composer Fartein Valen. Other works include an organ suite, some organ chorales, and even wedding music, from a composer whose compositional and technical repertoire is very extensive.
