Iveta Apkalna – the first sounds of the Klais organ can be heard as of today

Iveta Apkalna and the Elbphilharmonie organ - that fits perfectly! The titular organists of the Elbphilharmonie will release the world premiere recording of the organ of the Great Hall with Berlin Classics: Light & Dark. From today on you can hear the first sounds of the Klais organ.

With the prayer of the Latvian composer Kalçjs Apkalna, herself Latvian, refers to her homeland, which celebrates its 100th birthday in November. No pious or purely contemplative devotion is set to music by Kalçjs, but an intensive, in the middle part almost stirring dialogue with God.

The perfect introduction for an outstanding album, which will be available on CD with detailed booklet, a double LP with eight-page insert and digitally at September 7.
