About

Colourful arrangements for organ and percussion of glorious music by Ravel, J.S. Bach, Saint-Saëns and Mussorgsky, performed by Spanish organist Daniel Oyarzabal on the majestic León Cathedral organ.

The organ of León Cathedral in Spain is celebrated for its rich range of sounds, which are showcased by Daniel Oyarzabal in the variety of works selected for this release. He is joined by percussionists Juanjo Guillem and Joan Castelló, who add rhythmic emphasis and additional colour to these arrangements made by Oyarzabal himself.

J.S. Bach was a master of organ music, and we hear his Sinfonia from ‘Wir danken dir, Gott’, Cantata BWV 29, as originally arranged by Marcel Dupré, alongside ‘Wachet auf, ruft uns die Stimme’, BWV 645, in Bach’s own arrangement of his Cantata BWV 140. There are also transcriptions of some of the most beloved works in the repertoire: Mussorgsky’s vivid Pictures at an Exhibition, the irresistible Carnival of the Animals by Saint-Saëns, the Capriccio espagnol by Rimsky-Korsakov, and Ravel’s hypnotic Boléro. It is fascinating to hear how the stops of this famous organ replicate the colourful orchestration of these composers. There is also the chance to hear more rarely-performed music by 20th-century Spanish composer Jesus Guridi with his critically-acclaimed work, The Homestead.
