TRANSCRIPTIONS of
Gottfried Thore Drywa

the organ may not solely imitate an orchestra, but pay a most royal tribute to the character, the atmosphere and emotional experience of music itself. It needs unconventional and open-minded solutions to visualise the intentions and vision, the composer might have been up to. The organ is a unique interpretation medium new in its form, the orchestra an absolutely different of it, both, however - and this is the maybe most important common characteristic - are able to bring home more than the sum of the score, instrumentation and technical borders to the listener: the incredible beauty of music.
