Genug : for organ
by Benjamin Thorn (2012)
Score SampleView a sample of the score of this work
This is essentially a very, very slow reworking of the J S Bach chorale Es ist genug nimm herr. It creates a a sound world of almost suspended animation where each each slight change appears like an architectural feature suddenly coming into focus. It can be played by an organist alone or with improvised etheral percussion.
Instrumentation: Organ (and optional improvised percussion).
Duration: 15 min.
Commission note: Commissioned by the New England Bach Festival
First performance: by Cecile Michels — 4 May 12. Uniting Church, Armidale, NSW.
- Influenced by: Minimalism
