Description: Jongen's 1922 Rhapsodie, in his characterstic late period of style mixing Impressionism with late Romanticism shares space here with three more modern works: Walking with Eve (1988) is an attractive suite of five shortish movements mostly bathed in Impressionism while Celis' 2005 Tarquinia is a colorful evocation of five Etruscan murals, leaving us Craens' slow, dark mood pictures of 2008 - tonal, bitonal and sometimes atonal, pulsing with the slow breathing of... of what? Flemish-English texts. Hubert Damen (reciter), Emanon Ensemble; Raf de Keninck. (In Flanders' Fields, Vol. 62)
