May sheep safely graze? We don’t know who and when asked this rhetorical question, but Johann Sebastian Bach gave an answer to it. Yes, they may. And is it possible to reach stars? This question is addressed to another composer, Max Reger. And again we receive a positive answer, but it is important to remember that it is only possible “through hardships”. Now is there a piece of classical music called “Absent”? There is one, and it sounds perfectly, because Charles Gounod never composed other than perfect music. All these beautiful and curious things will be presented by a sublime duo of organ and soprano.
