Tastes of ... chili chocolate! George Thalben Ball's »Variations on a Theme by Paganini«.

Six different chocolates, six favourite pieces: For her »chocolate box«, titular organist Iveta Apkalna has chosen short organ works, each of which she associates with a particular flavour. The result is a collection of musical titbits to warm the mind and the soul.
