Description:
Thomas Åberg was born in Stockholm 1952 and works there as composer and music administrator. Most of his works are written for the organ and are characterized by their rhythmical joy, simplicity and humor. His music has been performed by organists at festivals throughout Europe and also in Japan and the USA. He also tours regularly as concert organist with his own works.

"Three Short Fantasy Pieces" date from 1979. The three movements are as follows:

1 - Daylight
2 - Wartet auf... (Waiting for...)
3 - Pluie d'orage sur Saint Louis (A thunderstorm over Saint Louis)

The three pieces are all dark and sinister, and the works go together to "represent" a stormy day.

The scene begins with a gloomy and forboding morning, which ends with a calm but "sad" melody. This leads directly into more expectations of a storm, which finally explodes in fury with a crashing thunderstorm over Saint Louis.

I'm guessing that this means the city of St. Louis, Missouri, but I don't know that... ;-)

During the coming days, I will be uploading more of Åberg's music. These works vary greatly in style, dynamics and color, and will probably aid in expanding our minds as to what organ music can sound like. :-)

More Åberg, as well as other items coming soon, including a very, very, VERY rare item for Palm Sunday!

I began a new oral chemo therapy today. This will be third try. Please remember me in your thoughts and prayers.
