Description

Anton Bruckner was one of the greatest organ virtuosos of his time and an outstanding improviser, but he left hardly any original works for the organ. His passion was the symphony, and many themes for it are said to have occurred to him at the organ. What could be more natural than to transfer Bruckner’s grandiose symphonic creations to the organ? Hansjörg Albrecht began in 2020 with the complete recording of all Bruckner symphonies as organ transcriptions, at Bruckner’s places of activity and other original locations.

Description

This very special film is dedicated to contemporary U.S. composers who, with their different styles, each became groundbreaking in their own right. Music by Philip Glass (*1937) and John Adams (*1947) can be heard – both music is classified as so-called “Minimal Music”. George C. Baker (*1951) who composes in the tradition of the Great American Music. Lastly Hans Zimmer (*1957), who has written the music for countless Hollywood blockbusters. The sound of these four composers, transferred to the organ, has a very special appeal. Especially when such prominent organists sit at the console as here: Paul Jacobs, Roger Sayer, Mark Steinbach and Stephen Tharp!
