These ten short compositions were originally commissioned by the Gesellschaft der Orgelfreunde (Society of Friends of the Organ) for its international symposium in Bremen in 1994. As the title suggests they are brief, technically intense compositions not exceeding two or three pages in length.
I have tried to build these short pieces around clearly defined themes and to create melodic, rhythmic and vibrant contrasts.
