On selected organ compositions by Petr Eben
Jaroslav Tůma

When composers die, there is usually a certain decline of interest in their musical legacy. In my opinion, Eben’s organ music has a chance to be among the works that will retain a stable position in the repertoire of organists not only in this country, but also abroad. So far, they have been finding their way back into the limelight with intermittent success. Sunday Music, Laudes, and Toccata Fugue are among the pieces frequently chosen by certain ambitious performers regardless of their nationality. Many also regard these works as milestones of organ music of the latter half of the twentieth century. Through this publication about interpretation, my goal was to introduce and explain Eben’s music as having a timeless message and also as belonging comfortably to the traditions of European organ culture.

Simple Music for Piano
Giya Kancheli

First released in Georgian and Russian editions in 2009, this collection of "sketches" reprises pieces which Giya Kancheli wrote for film and theatre while concurrently embarking on his work as composer of symphonic and chamber music: "No wonder then, that certain themes originally intended for plays and films made their way into my larger works or that the large forms themselves sometimes contained episodes reminiscent of incidental music."

In his introduction Kancheli writes that "The simplicity of presentation does not preclude but rather encourages freedom of interpretation, particularly for those with a gift for improvising", an observation already emphasized in an outstanding recording based on these pieces, "Themes from the Songbook".

This volume includes Kancheli music from 33 films and plays, plus short texts by theatre director Robert Sturua, film directors Georgi Danelia and Eldar Shengelaya, and painter/writer/director Rezo Gabriadze (whose drawings are also scattered through the book). Text: English.

The Clavichord
Jaroslav Tůma

That the clavichord is a nearly forgotten instrument is quite unjust. It served its role very comprehensively for many centuries, and many of its advantages could not be taken up by newer kinds of keyboard instruments, nor could they be replaced in any commensurate way,
let alone be surpassed. The main reason why pianos and later harmoniums definitively displaced clavichords from people’s homes and salons during the nineteenth century was the general requirement of a louder sound, although a part may have also been played by the newer types of musical instruments being easier to play.
