Organ Suite - I: Prelude

Solemn, yet lighthearted. This will be the prelude to my organ suite-to-come. It is melodious, but the repeating patterns are a herald of the minimalistic suite.

Berceuse and Variations on Paganini's theme (pipe organ)

A berceuse is a soothing lullaby, often written in 6/8 and having a rhythm similar to a rocking cradle. This particular one is a variation on Paganini's famous theme for solo violin.

   I composed this one to experiment with augmenting an existing theme. That means stretching the theme, often leaving out particular notes, which results in a simpler melody.

    After the lullaby part there are several variations developing into a grand recapitulation in the pedal.
