Illumina Duo: Illuminations, Dances & Poems


An album of contemporary music for trumpet and organ perfromed by Illumina Duo.

About this release

The illuminating dance of poetry, the poetic dance of illumination, and the dancing illumination of poetry are the heartbeat of the music on this recording.

In the lofty architecture of Dan Locklair’s music, the intense character pieces of Paul Burke and Solfa Carlisle, and in the harrowing journey towards consolation which is Torbjörn Hultmark’s Triptyk, rhythm, harmony, and the trumpet and the organ combine to tell the unending story of life through dance, poetry, and illumination.
