“Gloriole:“ Premiere in Munich of Johannes X. Schachtner's New Work

Johannes X. Schachtner's "Gloriole" was commissioned by the association "Romantic Organs of Munich" (R.O.M.) on the occasion of their tenth anniversary. The composition was inspired by a light installation by the visual artist Martin Schmidt (born 1963 in Munich) that will complement Schachtner's "Gloriole" at the world premiere on 10 July 2011 in Munich.

The work by the young Munich composer will be presented by Andreas Götz and Thomas Friese together with the Ensemble Chrismós under the direction of Alexander Hermann at St. Rupert Church during the course of "Little Organ Night.".

Schachtner comments on "Gloriole" as follows:
"The composition 'Gloriole,' inspired by a an installation by the visual artist Martin Schmidt, complements the light sources by four sound sources distributed in the room. Numerous synaesthetic perceptions play an important role in the twelve-minute work, for example the turning on of the light, the glare from the light source and the contemplative stillness in absolute darkness.“
