The titles of the "Trois Impressions" melt on the tongue: "Harmonies du soir," "Clair de lune," "La nuit"… Obviously, Claude Debussy inspired these pieces, and "Clair de lune" is even a literal borrowing: it is the title that Debussy gave to the third movement of his "Suite bergamasque" in 1905. Karg-Elert never captured the style of musical impressionism as profoundly and consistently as in these pieces. The "Trois Impressions" are unique in German organ music of its time.
Another chance to discover the (organ) composer Karg-Elert.
