Reidar Hauge (1947–2011) — Glogerintrada III (2005) for organ

Norwegian composer, organist, and conductor Reidar Hauge (1947–2011) was educated at at the Bergen Conservatory and the University of Minnesota (USA). In 1973, he became the cantor of Kongsberg Church and began an exceptionally active musical life in that city. He founded the Kongsberg Kantori and, following the long-awaited restoration of the 1765 Gloger organ, he began (in 2001) an annual music festival. Hauge wrote music in many genres, including several cantatas and oratorios as well as much chamber and solo music. He died in 2011 after a several year battle with cancer.

The “Gloger organ” of Kongsberg Church in Kongsberg, Norway was built by Heinrich Gloger in 1765. Due to fire damage, the organ became unplayable from the end of the 19th century. Through the efforts of Kongsberg Church’s musician, Reidar Hauge, the instrument was retored by Jürgen Ahrend in 2001 and became the centerpiece for a yearly music festival in Kongsberg during the January: the Glogerfestspillene. From 2004 until his death in 2011, Reidar Hauge wrote a new festive organ work (“Glogerintrada”) each year to open the festival. These works are in a free, fantasy-toccata style, combining both excited figurations, extended modal harmonies, and usually an embedded lyrical melody in the middle.
