Music by Felix Bräuer

German-Sorbian composer and organist Felix Bräuer (b. 1988) was born in Görlitz and was educated in Bautzen, Dresden, and Paderborn. He has served as a church musician in Bautzen and Dresden and has performed organ concerts throughout Germany. Bräuer has written numerous compositions in various genres including several oratorios and much organ and choral music. He describes his musical style as “characterized by a sense of the profoundly sacred and mystic, with direct symbolism and high emotionality for the aim of thoughtful listening.”

Carson Cooman has performed and recorded many of Bräuer’s works for organ and piano.


The recordings can be listened to online at YouTube (full playlist) or downloaded as MP3 files.
