Aeoline from Organ ABC by Vidas Pinkevicius

Today's piece comes from the Lithuanian composer and organist Vidas Pinkevicius' collection of organ works called Organ ABC. Each piece is named after a stop or color of the organ and that color is featured in each piece. The Aeoline (no. 1 in the collection) is based on a soft string stop, the softest string tone on the organ. This is the sound Pinkevicius plays with in this piece--a sound on the edge of the listening experience. In my rendition, I am using a Salicional 8' with Viole Celeste 8' on the manuals and Quintade 16' on the pedals.
The piece is deceptively more difficult than it may sound. The composer places syncopations throughout the work, pitches landing on offbeats. I don't feel these syncopations as jazzying up the piece. Instead they seem to flow organically out of the melodic material itself similar to the rhythms heard in plainchant. It's a short piece, and I hope you enjoy it.
