Fine art has always been a prominent source of inspiration for Petr Eben (* 1929). Chagall's stained-glass windows for the synagogue in Jerusalem gave an impulse for the 4 movements for trumpet and organ, commissioned by the city gallery in the western-Bohemian town of Cheb. The author commented on his choice of instruments: The solemness of the large panes of stained glass made me imagine the sound of the organ and the intensity and brilliance of the sheaves of bright colours called for the shrill tone of the trumpet. Eben combines the two instruments in an original manner: both parts retain a great deal of independence, progressing in their own rhythmic patterns, intersecting in places. The modal composition typical of Eben's method is confronted here with atonality, enabling the final unison of the two instruments sound with a monumental effect. Since its origin in 1976 Windows have been one of the most frequently performed pieces by the author. The individual movements of the cycle have the names of colours: The Blue Window, The Green Window, The Red Window, The Golden Window. The organ part has been revised by Milan Slechta, the trumpet part by Vladislav Kozderka.

    I felt I needed to chime in after seeing the only review of someone calling this ugly music. Yes, it is on the contemporary side of things, but I have loved this piece for many years. Go listen to some great recordings of it on YouTube. From what I can...

    recall off the top of my head, it was printed on nice paper. Overall, a quality product.
