Performer Composers

Notes & Reviews:

James D. Hicks continues his quest to discover hidden organ music treasures from Nordic composers, and to inspire new organ music from leading Nordic composers of the current age, in his sixth volume - a double CD - in his NORDIC JOURNEY series. There are TWO venues represented in Volume 6: Turku Cathedral with its 1980 Virtanen Organ, and St. Michael's Church in Turku, with its 2002 Grönlunds Organ. Turku is found on Finland's southwestern coast. Disc 1 holds a virtuosic concert program and Disc 2 contains many shorter and lighthearted works. Two pieces in the program, by Mauri Viitala and by Santeri Siimes, are newly commissioned works by James D. Hicks.
