In 'Drei Fantasien' and 'Contemplatio', the melodic element predominates. 'Fantasie für Orgel' is, according to Rihm in retrospect, “a multi-faceted organ piece with a frenetic ending”. The piece does, in fact, contain passages that anticipate those violent “outbursts” in his later orchestral works.
'Sinfoniae I – Messe für Orgel' (Sinfonias I – Mass for Organ) continues the tradition of the French organ mass and organ symphony. Nonetheless, the six 'movements' of this piece form, through their common material and textural structure, a tightly integrated whole.
In the composition 'Siebengestalt', both “intuitive and emotional” and “synthetic and constructive” elements are interwoven.
For 'Bann. Nachtschwärmerei', Rihm returns to the world of his earlier organ pieces from an ironic distance.
Young organist Dominik Susteck performed these works on the organ of St Peter’s Art Station in Cologne for this recording. The disposition of this instrument - the uniquely large number of overtone registers as well as specially construed registers for new music - should be mentioned and makes these works appear in an entirely new light.
