El Arte de Tañer

El Arte de Tañer – parla00901
This album from Via Artis Konsort member Poul Udbye Pock-Steen is the first part of a larger project dealing with early organ music, i.e. organ music from late medieval times to the baroque period, with a special focus on the instruments that were used to perform the music in early times.
This often rare but fascinating organ music contains elements from both art music and popular tones. The music is rich in contrasts – it can be both simple and virtuoso, sometimes pompous, almost boastfully and at other times meditative, and it mixes a modal expression with a complex polyphony. The CD is an evocative presentation of the many different musical forms that developed in the early European music.
The music has been recorded on two renaissance positives at the historic cathedral in Salamanca, Spain and on the renaissance organ in the Chapel of Queen Dorothea, Soenderborg Castle, Denmark.
The project is currently supported by the Danish Embassy in Madrid and by Fundación Reina Isabel de Dinamarca
