Dedication: for Philip Hartmann
Carol Paraphrase on a Motive of Wilhelm Weismann (2017) is dedicated to organist Philip Hartmann (Ulm, Germany). The work is a small paraphrase on a motive from a carol by the German composer Wilhelm Weismann (1900–1980), who was Hartmann’s great uncle. The theme is a Christmas carol: “Ich weiß ein lieblich Engelspiel” (“I know a lovely angel-song”) to a text by Heinrich von Laufenberg.
