Iveta's Chocolate Box #05

Tastes of ... walnut! Naji Hakim: Étude-Caprice »Alla Russa«

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.


»This music reminds me of a Russian funfair ... with the air filled with the fragrance of caramelized walnuts.«

Naji Hakim (*1955)
Étude-Caprice »Alla russa« / from: Quatre Études-Caprices pour orgue pédalier solo.
