“Fantasia solenne” (2016) explores an atmosphere throughout that is bittersweet: warm and sad. It is dedicated to Raimund Schächer.
This piece may be performed effectively on nearly any organ, from a large romantic cathedral-style instrument with many stops (and a rich 16′ chorus) to a small single-manual organ with only a few stops. The pedal part requires a range of only 13 notes (C–C) and thus the music can be played on instruments with only a bottom octave of pedals. This fantasia may be also played on organs tuned in unequal temperaments.
