"This CD is the first to be devoted exclusively to the organ music of the Latvian composer Peteris Vasks. With the exception of the 'Te Deum' (recorded in St. Gertrude in Riga), all of the works were recorded on the magnificent organ of the cathedral in Riga. Here, over the course of the past 20 years, Talivaldis Deksnis, since 1984 one of the principal organists of this venerable house of worship, has performed all of Vasks' works for organ, many of them for the first time. Besides original compositions for organ, this CD also includes two adaptations of works for string orchestra, 'Viatore' and 'Canto Di Forza,' both dedicated to Talivaldis Deksnis, with whom Vasks has maintained a lifelong friendship."
