This piece of music was one of my first contributions to this great platform.
I have revised it thoroughly, there were a number of disturbing cancellations of individual sounds in it, they are now corrected, I have now taken the tempo a little slower and adapted it for the organ of the Obersuhl congregation from binauralpipes.com.
The organ, which comes from the workshop of master organ builder Andreas J. Schiegnitz, has been in the church since 2012 and was awarded the Prize of Crafts Rhineland-Palatinate in 2013 as an organ sculpture.
It is hardly noticeable in the plenum that this organ is rather small with 16 sounding voices. But since my composition is exceedingly dense, which makes it very difficult to play it live on the one hand, it produces a very compact sound image on the other.
The first movement is a chaconne, which harmonically clearly goes beyond the baroque period. The middle section already anticipates the counterpoint of the following fugue, with the difference that here it is in the odd bar. The austere fugue is in four parts and characterized by a ritornello-like accompaniment of the chorale melody. The bass runs, as we know it from jazz music, in a brisk eighth-note movement. The fugue ends in the plenum with a full-throated shimmering B major chord.
The final chorale movement is rather simple, and a salute to the great master J.S.Bach, whose style I copy here (Note: only the style is copied and not the composition;-)).
Have fun now with this "Large scale composition"!
