Lewandowski’s composition Hebräische Weisen op. 45 was originally written for the piano in the form of the large-scale bravura piece common at that time. The work features thunderous octave passages – mostly played in unison on the pedals in the organ version – which are juxtaposed with ambitious lyrical sections, as well as several changes of key. Here, for the first time in the Synagogalmusik series, we find a virtuoso concert piece which sounds even more powerful when played in the editor’s organ version than in the original piano version. Hebräische Weisen op. 45 has a musical counterpart in Fünf Stücke op. 46.
