Fascination, inspiration and exploration – these are the key words to this album. The fascination is undoubtedly connected with the new, wonderful organ built for the National Forum of Music in Wrocław by the renowned organ-building firm Philipp
Klais from Bonn. The instrument was built in the years 2018–2020, and its timbre was de- signed in the spirit of the French symphonic organ at the turn of the 19th and 20th centuries. The discovery of its technical and sound possibilities has been hugely inspiring. In my nu- merous searches, I began to wonder in which direction to go and how, in accordance with my artistic convictions, to best reflect the spirit of this instrument. The solution was suggested by life, and more precisely by the calendar. Looking at the various anniversaries and com- memorations falling in 2021, one of them (actually double) caught my attention especially, closing the area of research. In May 2021, 135 years passed since the birth and 50 years since the death of the great French artist, organist, improviser and composer – Marcel Dupré (born 3 May 1886, died 30 May 1971). Both anniversaries inspired me to make this recording.
