Notes & Reviews:

"This new CD of ECHO prize-winning organist Iveta Apkalna begins with the toccata from Widor's most popular symphony: Symphony No. 5, also a popular test for the virtuosity of every concert organist. The other works on this CD are arrangements for organ of symphonic works by French composers. Latvian organist Iveta Apkalna is one of the few female organists who has established herself in the concert business as a virtuoso. In recent years, she has made a major contribution to freeing the organ from its "dusty" image. Iveta Apkalna has concertized at major festivals and with leading orchestras (Berlin Philharmonic, Hamburg Philharmonic, RSO Berlin, Gürzenich Orchestre Cologne, Kremerata Baltica etc.) under the direction of such conductors as Claudio Abbado, Simone Young, Marek Janowski, Markus Stenz, Christopher Hogwood, Andris Nelsons and others."
