Silberklänge for the Silbermann Organ in the St. George's Church, Rötha
Szathmáry Silberklänge for the Silbermann Organ in the St. George's Church, Rötha
The composition “Silberklänge” was commissioned for the 2020 International Johann Sebastian Bach Competition in Leipzig.
The composer noted: “During my first visit to the Georgenkirche in Rötha, I was impressed by the immensely vibrant and noble sounds of the historic Silbermann organ (1721), the endless variety of possible timbre combinations, the stellar acoustics of the church, and the historic atmosphere, which shaped and tamed my musical thoughts, transporting me into my very own ‘baroque’ world.”
This edition contains registration marks that reflect the soundscape the composer intended to achieve with this particular organ. Performing the work on an organ with different registration possibilities will open up a new spectrum of possible timbres.
