Great organ works from Kjell Mørk Karlsen

For more that 30 years Kjell Mørk Karlsen (b.1947) has been a driving force in Norwegian musical life. His extensive production includes symphonies, oratorios, concertos, chamber music, cantatas and music for choir and organ.There is an air of freedom and grandeur about Mørk Karlsen’s music. The fact that he himself is and organist, gives him the best qualifications for writing effectively for this instrument. The five pieces presented on this release also display a composer who is capable of transcending the formal boundaries that the biggest instrument in the world imposes, and create music that communicates directly with the listener.

The instrument Halgeir Schiager (b.1955) has chosen for this recording is among the top instruments of the world. It was restored in 1999, and its sound is unique. It has all the qualities needed to realize music in the great romantic tradition. Schiager, of course already known to audiences as an exquisite interpreter of Petr Eben’s music, does a fabulous job in conveying the music of Mørk Karlsen.
