To coincide with the 2015 20th anniversary of The Studio for New Music of the University of Siegen, NEOS presents a CD collecting the complete solo organ compositions of Martin Herchenröder. Linien aus Nachtlicht - Organ Works was recorded in 2014 on a Woehl organ in Piteå, Sweden, and consists of organ music from the years 1991 to 2011, performed by the ECHO Prize winner Christian Schmitt, Professor Hans Davidsson from the Royal Danish Academy of Music, Copenhagen, and by the composer himself. Among other things, the CD brings together the works "Linien aus Nacht-licht" ("Lines out of Nocturnal Light") and "Meerleuchten" ("Sea Lights"), both based on paintings of Paul Klee, as well as the two "zeit-raum" ("time-space") cycles, composed for the re-dedication of the restored organ in Wenzelskirche, Naumburg, which had earlier been inaugurated by Johann Sebastian Bach. The CD contains Herchenröder's complete oeuvre for solo organ since 1991, in which the development of the organ music of this period is simultaneously reflected, offering excellent insight into his musical world.
