Sibelius on the organ today? More than ever!

"What with everyone screaming and applauding, it was impossible to hear the music," wrote the composer to his brother Christian about the first performance of the famous Karelia Suite. Klaus Uwe Ludwig presents the work in an organ transcription that is based on his solid knowledge of late-romantic organ literature. He has given ample proof of his expertise in his other transcriptions of orchestral pieces. Indications of the original orchestration found in the music text are intended to stimulate the performer in his search for an adequate sound on the organ. The desired result is an interpretation that is rich in contrasts and that is ideally suited to the organ so that also today the audience is enthusiastically "screaming and applauding".
