MECHANICAL NATURE

The organ is history’s first synthesizer. It’s thus no surprise that its infinite tonal possibilities have inspired many composers to make the instrument a mirror of nature. Here, amid water, wind, clouds and sky, and stars, an alternation of famous pieces and delectable tidbits provides an enthralling kaleidoscope of sounds.
