About the album
This is unprecedented, splendid audio source recorded with hornists accompanied by pipe organ in a fine church located in outer Prague, featuring the repertoire based on Bruckner's works. Bruckner himself was also a fine organist at that time, and sometimes his orchestral compositions leave the impression of rich organ sound. Radek Baborak, one of the best, talented hornists in the world, organizes his own horn ensemble in order to realize the Bruckner's sound world through his own instrument, and succeeded in evoking such a solemn, celestial sound, incommensurable with the sound of organ or even of the orchestra.
