The Dark Side and the Heroic Side of Organ Music

Such are special musical formulas transmitting important words, mysterious and obscure, like the far side of the Moon.

So let us approach the heroic and the dark sense including the knowledge of the light. The program presents mystical music of Europe of the 19th, 20th and 21st centuries.
