Andreas Willscher (b. 1955) — Sonatina No. 3 (2007) for organ
1. Angelus dans les Pryrénées
2. La Fiesta
3. O Admirabile Sacramento
“Sonatina No. 3” (2007) is in three movements and was written for Friedrich Storfinger, concert artist and organist at the Church of Our Lady in Bottrop, Germany. The outer two movements are quiet, mystical evocations whereas the second movement partakes of a boisterous Spanish/Latin flavor.
Andreas Willscher (b. 1955) studied composition, theory, and organ in Hamburg. In 1971 he was appointed organist of the St. Francis Church in Hamburg and in 2000 at the church of St. Joseph-Wandsbek. In addition, he has been keyboardist for several jazz and rock ensembles. Willscher has received many awards and commissions for his compositions, which range widely in form: from symphonic music and oratorios to cabaret and rock scores. His organ style blends elements of the traditional repertoire with contemporary jazz and pop influences.
