Herman Berlinski, distinguished organist and composer, was born in Leipzig, Germany in 1910. His prolific output includes symphonic and chamber works, solo works for piano and organ, song cycles, and numerous liturgical choral works and oratorios. Among his large-scale works was one commissioned for performance at the Smithsonian Institution at the time of the "Precious Legacy" exhibit there. As organist, Dr. Berlinski has performed throughout Europe and America, including Notre Dame in Paris, and Temple Emanu-El in New York. In 1981, at the Thomaskirche in Leipzig, he performed a recital for the surviving members of that city's Jewish community, as part of a memorial observance of the "Kristallnacht." Among his many works for the organ are Eleven Sinfonias, The Burning Bush, and The Glass Bead Game (which was premiered at Carnegie Hall in 1974 on the occasion of the dedication of the hall's new organ).
