Description: The four "Concertos for Solo Organ" differ from Nowowiejski's nine organ symphonies only in title; he had dedicated his Ninth to Beethoven and did not want to write more than nine "symphonies". Three movement works lasting around a half hour, they also make use of Gregorian motifs and have references to various liturgical hymns and forms but these are conditioned, in addition, by their being composed between the Nazi invasion of Poland and 1941. Nowowiejski fled to Krakow from Warsaw and there are biographical elements in the First, along with music that pushes the edges of tonality, with unresolved harmonic tensions, dissonanaces and bitonality, none of which appeared in his pre-war compostions. Rudolf Innig (Sauer organ of Bremen Cathedral).
