Landscapes of Patmos

This is a live recording of Petr Eben’s “Landscapes of Patmos” (Images from the Revelation of St. John), made March 20, 2017 at Shepherd School of Music, Rice University. Bryan Anderson is on organ and Keith Hammer, III is on percussion. This dramatic and mystical work is not heard often, despite Eben’s brilliant orchestration between the ensembles and blazing depictions of the apocalypic symbols. My suggested way to listen is to do a keyword search of Revelation for the movement titles (eagle, elders, etc.) and read the short passages along with listening.
