Notes & Reviews:

"Petr Eben has carved out a distinctive niche for himself in contemporary organ music, combining French colourism and Protestant Earnestness. This disc gives us a collection of mainly small-scale pieces played with diligent sure-footedness by the Norwegian organist Halgeir Schiager. Each track gives a piette-drop of concentrated thought, highly chromatic and individual... Eben is well worth investigating." ***** - William Whitehead BBC

'Eben's organ music is a major discovery, full of variety and invention. Heartily recommended' (Fanfare)

'This CD continues the barnstorming success of the previous two... a strong recommendation' (Fanfare)

'A delightful programme of short pieces continues this series devoted to the organ music of a contemporary Czech composer. He could hardly wish for a more sympathetic or more virtuoso interpreter, and the recording renders the splendour of both instruments very vividly' (Gramophone)
