At first glance, it is an unusual project to play Debussy's piano works on the organ. At second glance, however, it is a sensation: Carsten Wiebusch's CD 'La Cathédrale engloutie - piano works in transcriptions for organ' sparks off a riot of colours, using the entire palette of reed stops, the most diverse flues, entirely neutral accompanying registers through to glockenspiel.

Wiebusch captures the expression of Debussy's harmonic language by sustaining sounds at the organ, which, at the piano, would die away relatively quickly. The second book of 'Préludes' and the 'Suite bergamasque', two standard works of piano repertoire, are interpreted by Wiebusch on the organ, revealing how abstract Debussy's thinking is in this music.

Carsten Wiebusch studied church music in Düsseldorf. Since 1999 he has been organist and choir master at the Christuskirche in Karlsruhe, whose Klais organ, inaugurated in 2010, possesses an equally powerful and poetic sound which is also portrayed on the SACD "Best's Bach" (Audite92663).
