    Gunther Rost at the Jann organs in Waldsassen basilica


    This double SACD concludes the five-volume edition of Petr Eben's complete works for organ performed by Gunther Rost. It mainly features Eben's latest and most extensive cycle for organ and speaker as of now, The Labyrinth of the World and the Paradise of the Heart. The cycle's texts are taken from Jan Amos Comenius' book of the same title. The speaker is the renowned German recitor Gert Westphal († 2002), who already appeared in Job, the series' second volume. Recorded in 2002, this production can safely be considered the great recitor's last one.
    Furthermore, the SACD also features Gunther Rost's interpretation of Momenti d'Organo, Campanae Gloriosae and Ten Chorale Preludes performed at the Jann organs in Waldsassen basilica, as well as the concluding chorale fantasy Amen - es werde wahr.
    - Comprehensive booklet with commentary on the works and music examples,
    in German and English.
