Carl Nielsen (1865-1931) began writing for the organ only late in life. Starting with the 29 Little Preludes for Organ, Nielsen invented a personal organ style both Baroque and very Nielsenesque, refined in his last major work, the monumental Commotio. On this CD Professor Bine Bryndorf performs Nielsen's organ works on the ideally suited organ at Nikolaj Kunsthal in Copenhagen, adding a selection of Hymns and Spiritual Songs with baritone Torsten Nielsen. Following the 2015 Nielsen anniversary, the Danish composer Carl Nielsen continues to be performed in the greatest concert halls around the world. Professor Bine Bryndorf is one of today's leading organists of the German Baroque repertoire that inspired Nielsen's organ works. She spent the past year researching and performing Nielsen's organ works all over Europe. High-quality recordings of Carl Nielsen's organ works, recorded on the organ Nielsen heard Commotio performed on in 1931. The organ in Nikolaj Kunsthal is the only organ from Nielsen's time that hasn't been modified – it sounds like it did in Nielsen's time.
