Notes & Reviews:

A prolific composer and organist, Naji Hakim is truly one of the most versatile performercomposers working today, garnering praise from his numerous organ and composition competition prizes as well as an award from Pope Benedict XVI for his musical work in benefit of the church. This new recording with the Danish Chamber Players explores some of Hakim's works for chamber ensemble and organ, with performances from the Th. Frobenius & Sonner Organ of Vangede Kirke, Gentofte, Denmark.

Gramophone Magazine, December 2012
Passages of lyrical grace, magnificence and high drama seem to come as readily as those of banal, unfocused note-spinning...By far the strongest, leanest work is the vividly scored Concerto No. 4 for organ and chamber ensemble, the last two of its three movements again drawing on Danish hymn tunes for their thematic material. The final is a riot of joyous dancing.

The Organ, Spring 2013
The music could hardly be more authoritatively performed than it is here ... It's an extraordinary collection, absolutely original and quite compelling in its way, excellently performed and recorded ... A very remarkable record.
