Mendelssohn and the Organ Sonata (2016)

Mendelssohn

Anders Eidsten Dahl

I should like to call the pieces “3 Sonatas for the Organ” instead of “Voluntaries”. 
Tell me if you like this title as well, if not, 
I think “Voluntaries” will suit the pieces also, the more so as I do not know what 
it means precisely. 

Felix Mendelssohn wrote these lines to Charles Coventry in a letter dated 29 August 1844. Coventry was the proprietor of the English music publisher Coventry & Hollier and a great admirer of his friend Mendelssohn. As background for their correspondence in late summer of 1844, Mendelssohn had been commissioned to write organ music by Coventry & Hollier, organ music intended for the English market. The term voluntary is used for a piece of organ music bearing a certain resemblance to the classical French overture, with a slow followed by a fast movement.

In 2000 Eidsten Dahl, together with trombonist Marius Hesby, was finalist in the first ConocoPhillips Competition. In 2003 he was awarded the Ticon music scholarship. He has qualified for a number of major international organ competitions, and in 2002 he was finalist in the “Second International Organ Competition” in Erfurt, Germany. Eidsten Dahl’s repertoire spans from the Baroque to the music of today, with emphasis on J. S. Bach and organ music from the Romantic period.
