Performer Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Celebrating 100 years since the birth of the French composer Jehan Alain on February 3, 2011, Simax Classics is proud to release his complete works for organ recorded at the new Goll organ at Fagerborg Church in Oslo. A fascinating experience of this enigmatic musical soul filled with humor, serenity and love.

"Birkeland's survey is more comprehensive than most and includes several rarely-heard little pieces. But he opens with the best-known of all his works, Litanies, in a disciplined performance that shows him to be an elegant player with secure technique...Even though a more snarling French instrument might be desirable, the organ in Oslo's Fagerborg Church has a crispness that suits this music well." -BBC Music
