Description:
Thomas Åberg (b. 1952) — Sonatina No. 1 (1986) for organ

1) Allegro
2) Adagio
3) Finale

"Sonatina No. 1” (1986) is in three movements and displays the influence of Swedish folk music. The first movement, Allegro, is lyrical and flowing, with modal melodies and phrases interlocking. The second, Adagio, is enigmatic. The third, Finale (Andante), is delightful in character.

Thomas Åberg (b. 1952) was born in Stockholm, Sweden and works there as composer, concert organist, and music administrator. Most of his works are written for the organ and are characterized by their rhythmic joy, simplicity, and humor. He has stated that "music must bring enjoyment, without abandoning reverence," and as such his style often uses the most basic of musical materials to create a discourse that is both spiritual and visceral. His music has been performed by organists at festivals throughout Europe, Asia, and the USA. He also tours regularly worldwide as concert organist with his own works.
