The Studio for New Music of the University of Siegen is now celebrating its 20th anniversary! Right on time for the anniversary, we are now releasing our CD with organ music by Martin Herchenröder, founder and artistic director of the series from the outset: 'Linien aus Nachtlicht – Martin Herchenröder, Organ Works', recorded in 2014 on the new Woehl organ in Piteå, Sweden.

The CD contains organ music from the years 1991 to 2011, recorded by the ECHO Prize winner Christian Schmitt, Professor Hans Davidsson from the Royal Conservatory in Copenhagen and by the composer himself.

Among other things, the CD brings together the works 'Linien aus Nachtlicht' (Lines out of Nocturnal Light) and 'Meerleuchten' (Sea Lights), based on paintings of Paul Klee as well as the two 'zeit raum' (time-space) cycles, composed for the re-dedication of the restored organ in Wenzelskirche in Naumburg, which had earlier been inaugurated by Johann Sebastian Bach.

It contains Herchenröder's complete oeuvre for organ solo from the past two decades, in which the development of the organ music of this period is simultaneously reflected, offering excellent insight into his musical world.
