Rolf Borch Plays Houvenaghel’s Organ
«Nuance of timbre and strongly communicating musicality (…) Houvenaghel’s Organ is a strong and wonderful celebration of this young Norwegian performer’s profile as a musician and artist (…) The polyphonic and sonorously saturated organ harmony is broadly painted with Borch’s super clarinet. It works. And it works well!»
(Annabel Guaita, BT)
«Borch is one of this country’s finest clarinet players, having had a dream of playing the great masters in the organ reperoire – in an organ setting. And then, of course, he does something about it. (…) A CD one can amuse oneself with – and marvel over.»
Houvenaghel’s Organ is clarinetist Rolf Borch´s organist debut. By adding the contrabass clarinet to his family of clarinets, Rolf Borch is able to fill the same range as that of a large church organ. Being a classical clarinetist, highly profiled as a performer of contemporary music, Borch on this album plays iconic organ works by Frescobaldi, Bach and Reger along with his own new organ piece, Veils.
