Notes & Reviews:

Of this major cycle for organ Tanke writes: "Between 1996 and 2001 I composed a number of pieces for organ. The first collection is entitled 'Imaginary Day'... Generally the pieces evolved from a useful idea, an "invention," emerging from improvisation. This is elaborated upon and leads to some sketches. A second "invention" may be added to provide contrast or to enhance the structure. Then the improvisation, played repeatedly from the sketches, slowly crystallizes into a composition. This process could last several weeks, sometimes several years, the sketches becoming increasingly detailed. Ultimately each piece may be entirely composed or may permit some improvisation. All of the pieces have evolved in this manner, excepting 'For a Child and' and 'Bagpipes,' which were composed from the start."
