The tensions that The Great War caused stimulated creative minds well beyond the 19th century. Some saw in their music a way to communicate their worries, while others sought refuge. This record explores these various stances within a European perspective, between Romantic or symphonic holdovers and neoclassical leanings, between repertory for organ and transcriptions... an entire musical world swept along into metamorphosis.
