Description:
Triptych in honorem Gustav Willscher (2017) is dedicated to Andreas Willscher in celebration of the writing of his Troppauer Musiklexicon.

Gustav Willscher (born 1882 in Meltsch bei Troppau/Sudentenschleisen and died 1937 in Vienna) was in his time a very successful poet, writer, and composer. In addition to his musical talents (he played several instruments, among others the piano and guitar), he also created a collection of drawings. He was the grandfather of composer and organist Andreas Willscher.

The outer movements, “Silesian Prelude” and “Troppauer Postlude,” refer to his cultural heritage, and each quote a musical theme by Gustav Willscher. The second movement, “Minuet,” refers obliquely to Vienna, the city in which Willscher died.
