Serenata in chiaroscuro
for solo organ, M.650 (2005-6)
LISTEN TO THE WORK :
Erwin Messmer, organ of the College church of Schwyz
Erwin Messmer has first performed this work 2006 in Berne on the occasion of the 20th anniversary of the Organ Serenades of Bümpliz.
Duration of the work : approximately 6 minutes
In one single movement, the piece goes often from brightness to obscurity, and vice versa. It is elliptical and interrogative. The principal theme, hesitating, alternates with rich harmonies.
