Retrové - Single
Early 14th-century medieval keyboard piece meets Hard Rock and Techno on a roaring pipe organ.
“Retrové”, also known as “Organ Estampie”, is from the 14th century Robertsbridge fragment. One of the earliest extant organ compositions, it is included early on in The Historical Anthology of Music (Harvard University Press). I expanded this piece, emphasizing the dance character of the estampie genre, adding a Pedal part and techno-influenced off-beat eighth notes, as well as adapting the form to a Verse-Refrain-type structure and employing vast crescendos unique to the pipe organ. This is the first single from the historic premiere recording of the Walt Disney Concert Hall pipe organ in Los Angeles.
