About this Recording

Organ Recital: Unger, Michael - BUXTEHUDE, D. / BACH, J.S. / LITAIZE, G. / WIDOR, C.-M. / MESSIAEN, O.

Canadian-born Michael Unger is a multi-award winner, including First Prize in the 2008 Sixth International Organ Competition Musashino-Tokyo, Japan, and First and Audience Prize in the 2008 American Guild of Organists’ National Young Artists Competition. The music chosen for his début Naxos recital follows a kind of spiritual progression from death to life, beginning with a dramatic baroque depiction of death’s dance (Praeludium in E, Buxtehude), and concluding with an exuberant twentieth-century affirmation of religious incarnation (Dieu parmi nous, Messiaen). Michael Unger performs extensively, and is also a church musician, chamber musician and published composer.
