Paraphase on a Motive of Andreas Willscher (2017) is dedicated to German organist Philip Hartmann (based for many years in Ulm). The work is a paraphrase/fantasy on a motive by the German composer Andreas Willscher (b. 1955). The motive comes from Willscher’s Postludium (from 76 Inventions, 2006).

The motive is developed freely across several sections: a grand, majestic passage that returns several times, a “récit de cornet,” and a toccata.
