Product Description

"Ugab" refers to one of the first wind instruments mentioned in the Bible, perhaps an ancestor of the organ. This title serves to set the listener's mindset deep into the past. In this first installment of a series of unspecified size, Yves Rechsteiner performs on the 1742 Moucherel (attr.) organ at the church of the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary in Cintegabelle, France.

Jean-Philippe Rameau was an organist until he was around 50 years old, when he chose to show his displeasure by pulling the most unpleasant stops and making the most discordant sounds possible during a service. Here, Rechsteiner performs his own transcriptions of movements from the operas of Rameau. Henri-Charles Caget performs on percussion, adding intensity and drama to the recording. Interesting and extensive liner notes (70 pages) compare Rameau's works with organ-composing contemporaries Balbastre and Daquin.

Note: High quality SACD format will play on all CD and SACD players.
