Composition commission German Music Council

Project “Organ Music in Times of Corona

The German Music Council, together with the German Bishops’ Conference and the Evangelical Church in Germany, is carrying out the project “Organ Music in Times of Corona.” The project forms a contribution to the “Year of the Organ,” which the state music councils have proclaimed for 2021. As part of the project, 17 compositions for organ were created that artistically reflect the Corona era.

In the fall of 2021, these organ works will be heard in numerous concerts and church services. In this way, musical life will be actively promoted and listeners will be encouraged to engage with the pandemic experience. The project will conclude with a finissage concert on November 21, 2021, at which all 17 compositions will be performed together. The project is funded by the Federal Commissioner for Culture and the Media.

The German Music Council is publishing the 17 compositions in an anthology with Carus-Verlag. Co-editors are Prof. Richard Mailänder and LKMD Kord Michaelis. Organists working in Germany can obtain an online or print edition of the Organ Book free of charge from the German Music Council if they perform pieces from the Organ Book in a concert or service within the project “Organ Music in Times of Corona” in the fall of 2021. Here is more information!
