      Gabriel Feltz, conductor


      Petr Eben (* January 22, 1929 in Žamberk; † October 24, 2007 in Prague) is considered to be one of the Czech Republic‘s leading contemporary composers. His organ compositions explore new territory in regard to playing techniques, sound and subject matter. His goal is to convey a message to listeners, e.g. through commentaries or – as in his Second Organ Concerto – by prefixing his scores with a motto. Formal clarity and understandability are a „must“ for him. His music is characterized by free tonality that always includes tonal sections.

      Gunther Rost was able to win two prominent guest musicians for this CD: Tine Ting Helseth (trumpet) and Babette Haag (percussion).
