Performer Composers

Notes & Reviews:

The Lebanese composer Naji Hakim (a student of Jean Langlais) is featured in the Ouverture Libanaise, based on Lebanese folk melodies and Pange Lingua, a set of six variations from a text by Thomas Aquinas. A major part of Robert Helmschrott's output is dedicated to organ music. Here Franz Hauk plays Furioso Infernal, a symphonic fantasy, and Dans la Lumiere. Olivier Messiaen's organ cycle L'Ascension first existed in an orchestral version, consisting of four symphonic meditations. The first illustrates "the picture of stone figures of Christ on cathedrals," the exotic second meditation shows Messiaen's development towards Indian rhythms and bird songs. The third meditation is a virtuoso toccata and the concluding meditation creates a timeless atmosphere.
