Thomas Demenga / Heinz Reber - Cellorganics (rec. 1980, rel. 1981)

Staying in the ECM organ zone for today, and adding a cello.  That cello is the first sound you hear on this recording from October 1980, tentatively staking out its naturally-reverbed territory (in Pauluskirche, Bern) before the organ gradually fills the rest of the space.  From then on, these two Swiss composer-musicians create a perfectly-balanced dialogue, sometimes quiet and reflective, but able to work up to a full-on maelstrom when necessary.  A great combination of two unusually-paired instruments, that needless to say for ECM, sounds absolutely stunning.

  1. It sounds so good and their melody was more than awesome. I just love to listen their music and songs as well. Thank you for sharing their soft rhythmic music
