About the album

Naji Hakim returns to disc on Signum with a new and powerful collection of organ works. Hakim is joined by Marie-Bernadette Dufourcet for the central piece of the program, a set of meditations for two organists inspired by Lucas Cranach the Elder's woodcuts of the Apostles. Completed in 2000, the Schuke Organ of the Palacio Euskalduna is housed in a magnificent concert hall of wood and steel. A modern instrument, it is well-suited to the nuanced voicings of modern organ compositions.
Krachtige collectie orgelwerken gespeeld op modern instrument
Naji Hakim keert terug met een nieuwe en krachtige collectie orgelwerken. Hakim wordt hier bijgestaan door zijn vrouw en organiste Marie-Bernadette Dufourcet op het belangrijkste stuk van het album, een reeks van meditaties voor twee organisten geïnspireerd op Lucas Cranachs The Elder’s woodcuts of the Apostles.

Na de voltooiing in 2000 staat het Schuke Orgel van het Palacio Euskalduna nu in een prachtige concertzaal gemaakt van hout en staal, geïnspireerd op de Euskulduna scheepswerven die ooit het terrein bezet hielden. Een modern instrument, zeer geschikt voor de genuanceerde stemmingen van moderne orgelcomposities en tegelijkertijd ook sympathiek en aanpasbaar aan de grote werken uit het verleden.
