Variations on Wie schön leuchtet der Morgenstern


The Variations on Wie schön leuchtet der Morgenstern were commissioned by Freunde der Musik am Münster, Liebfrauenmünster, Ingolstadt, Germany for oboe and organ. The premiere was given on 14 September 2008 by Georgi Kobulaschwili, oboe and Naji Hakim, organ. The solo part could also be played by violin, flute, clarinet or saxophone soprano.

The music of the three variations, Largo – Larghetto – Allegro con spirito, paraphrases Philipp Nicolai’s melody and comments the spirit and characters of selected stanzas from Nicolai’s original poem Wie schön leuchtet der Morgenstern.
