MARIAN SAWA (1937-2005): Organ Works, Vol. 5 - Entrada festiva, 3 Elegies, 2 Polish Preludes, 13 Preludes on Polish Church Songs, Sonata Hafis, Toccata and Fugue.
Catalogue Number: 12O080
Label: Acte Préalable
Description: Almost ten years after Vol. 4 of this series we get another one! Sacred songs dominate this one, covering 40 of the disc's 69 minutes; the Elegies are strikingly somber, the Entrada bold but not brassy, the five-minute Sonata Hafis (no explanation given) brilliant and virtuosic (and, like the Elegies also performable on piano). If you liked Sawa's previous volumes with their intensity, wide dynamic extremes and often Gallic sensibility to color, there will be more for you to enjoy here. Bartosz Patryk Rzyman (Sauer organ of the Basilic Minor, Strzegom).
