organ solo

Commissioned by Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra for the inauguration of the Concert Hall’s new organ (Rieger) in collaboration with Gothenburg International Organ Academy.
First performance the 17th October 2021 by Karin Nelson.

The organ solo Span moves between the soaring highs and the depths of underground. The music hangs and stretches over it like a sail which searching movements are trying to catch. It falls, sometimes lands, in stillness, gathers to eager activity, is sometimes carried to resting wavelengths, expands to full width… still in its relentless pursuit upward, from and to the elusive - the firmament.
