Gunnar Idenstam (organ)


Gunnar Idenstam is firmly grounded in the virtuosic French organ tradition, which he studied in France with the legendary Marie-Claire Alain.

It was during his time in Paris that Idenstam first started dreaming of transferring Debussy’s La Mer to his own instrument – to perform this impressionistic orchestral seascape on the organ. As Idenstam now releases a recording of his arrangement, it appears in the company of key orchestral works by Maurice Ravel, another composer who never wrote anything for the organ.

Played on the 1912/2002 Stahlhuth/Jann organ of Église Saint-Martin de Dudelange, Luxembourg.
