Internationally acclaimed organist and recording artist Gail Archer rekindles her nationwide tour (halted by COVID last year) of Ukrainian organ music off of her latest album: Chernivtsi: Contemporary Ukrainian Organ Music (Released 2020, Meyer Media). Known for enthralling listeners with her musicality, sensitivity, and visceral quality, Archer introduces listeners to rarely performed works by six 19th-21st century Ukrainian composers.

The organ literature of Eastern Europe is little known in the West, both in Western Europe and the United States. Archer is dedicated to drawing attention to Ukrainian modern composers through ongoing research and performances. “The richness and variety of the Ukrainian organ literature deserves international attention, as the beauty and vital creative spirit in this music inspires and rewards the performer as well as the listener,” says Gail Archer. “It is my sincere hope that many people will take the journey to Chernivtsi, and come away refreshed, renewed and ever more curious about the musical arts in Eastern Europe today.”
