Info zu Judith Weir & Jonathan Dove: Organ Works

Jonathan Dove (b. 1959) and Dame Judith Weir (b. 1954) may diverge in musical style, yet their organ compositions converge through evocative storytelling.

On this album, their works for organ intertwine, revealing a shared fascination with the organ’s pictorial prowess, particularly in the depiction of watery motifs.

From Weir’s turbulent Scottish rivers in Ettrick Banks, and her rugged yet ghostly depiction of traditional Eastern European folk instruments in The Wild Reeds, to Dove’s jubilant celebrations of organ pipes in The Dancing Pipes, and the almost over-whelming force of his Niagara, each piece unfolds like a rich tapestry of sound.

Organist Thomas Corns breathes life into these compositions, where theological reflections mingle with vibrant sonic imagery, and the organ becomes a palette for storytelling.
