“Harmonische Kalender-Lust” (Harmonic Calendar Delight) (2006) was written originally for a project featuring the 1743 Stumm organ in Bornheim, Germany. The idea was to combine a visual calendar featuring photos of the parish churches in Lohndorf, Bermersheim, and Bornheim along with a short musical piece for each month of the year. The result is a “musical calendar” of pieces of varied character.

German composer Burkhard Mohr (b. 1955) was born in Gambach/Oberhessen and was educated in Frankfurt where he studied music and theology. He also attended the Darmstadt new music courses with Stockhausen, Kagel, Ligeti, and Xenakis. He has worked as a church musician in Frankfurt-Höchst and Wiesbaden and also taught music for many years at the technical university in Frankfurt. Mohr has composed numerous musical works in many genres, including several operas and orchestral works along with much chamber music and music for choir and organ. Mohr’s music usually concerns itself with the blurry boundaries and connections between atonal (12-tone) and tonal (triadic) materials and with the unexpected (or traditionally extended) formal designs that can result from teasing out these connections.
