Herman Berlinski (Leipzig, Germany, 18 August 1910 – Washington D.C., 27 September 2001) was a German-born American composer, organist, pianist, musicologist and choir conductor. He wrote a number of pieces for organ, among them several Sinfonias (maybe not what one might expect for an organ symphonie, but still....) The 2nd sinfonia was actually published in 2 volumes, the first 2 movements in "Two Preludes for the High Holy Days", the last 3 in "Three Preludes for the Festivals. This first movement is filled with fanfares imitating the shofar, interspersed with softer (and louder) sections. It ends quietly and mysteriously. I decided to do this as a MIDI interpretation, my live playing right now is focused on getting ready for a December concert. Hereford works well for this movement (and probably the others as well, although there will be some missing stops which i might need to supply from somewhere else) I hope you enjoy - this was my first exposure to the music of Berlinski... AD, do tell me if I got the Rosh Hashana "mysteriousness" right...
WARNING - this starts pretty softly after the opening fanfare, but at about 2:20 it goes to a fierce tutti... you might want to be careful with your playback level!
