Piece In Peace

Elisabeth Engdahl & Thomas Gustafsson

“All around are to be found empty acoustic rooms and silent organ pipes waiting to be filled with new music. Churches are increasingly-important concert venues and with these pieces Elisabeth Engdahl and Thomas Gustafsson have created music to fill the vaults with sounds to vibrate far beyond their walls.” – Niklas Rådström

“Recorded in the Chrystinae Kyrka in Gothenburg earlier this year, this album features Elisabeth Engdahl on the church organ, and Thomas Gustaffson on soprano saxophone. It’s pretty incredible to hear how those two instruments blend together. Next to the original compositions the duo also recorded Keith Jarrett’s ‘My Song’ and the late Joe Zawinul’s ‘A Remark You Made’ and ‘In A Silent Way’. A fine discovery.” – United Mutations.
