COMPOSERS: Karg-Elert
LABELS: BIS
WORKS: Organ Works, Vol. 1
PERFORMER: Hans Fagius (organ)
CATALOGUE NO: CD-1084
One of many tonal composers to be stranded by the receding tide of Romanticism, Karg-Elert produced both impressionistic miniatures and traditional chorale-inspired works. Both are represented here, though Fagius connects more deeply with the weighty utterance of the Passacaglia and Fugue on BACH than the slim evanescence of the Seven Pastels from Lake Constance.
