Hymns/Spheres is Keith Jarrett’s cherished 1976 encounter with the Karl Joseph Riepp baroque organ of the Abbey of Ottobeuren – one of the greatest improvisers communing with one of Europe’s most beloved instruments – a truly remarkable musical experience. This monumental release marks the first time the set has been available in its entirety. The work has long been a favorite amongst organ music aficionados as well as Jarrett’s loyal following. Hymns/Spheres presents the joyful “Hymn Of Remembrance” and “Hymn Of Release” with all nine movements of the experimental “Spheres.” Absolutely essential.

Reviews
As completely free improvisation, this is just as spellbinding as the piano pieces, and has even been compared to his famous Koln Concert. It has the additional fascination of some remarkable effects that he discovered while manipulating the organ stops. At times it sounds almost electronic. - The Guardian
