Unexpected sounds for trumpet and organ from the Philharmonie de Luxembourg. A multifaceted Super Audio CD for the fifteenth anniversary of the grand Karl-Schuke organ in the Grand Auditorium.
Spritual Quest - the title of this album - is a composition by the young Spanish-Luxembourgish composer Ivan Boumans, who wrote the piece especially for this recording of contemporary music for trumpet and organ. This project is a counter-project to the usual albums of the genre 'trumpet & organ' and presents a wide spectrum of partly very different works for this instrumentation. All compositions were written in the second half of the 20th century, or even after 2000, and each of these works develops its own charm, with Maurice Clement making the most refined use of the tonal possibilities of the great Schuke organ of the Luxembourg Philharmonic. Ádám Rixer has been principal trumpet of the Orchestre Philharmonique de Luxembourg for 20 years and masters the sometimes highly virtuoso solo passages with bravura.
