Josef Gabriel Rheinberger’s organ works are now for the first time complete on twelve CDs, and with this magnificent project the concert organist Rudolf Innig has rendered priceless service to German romantic organ music. Along with the major sonatas, numerous previously undiscovered treasures have been brought to light, for it was particularly in small forms that Rheinberger did great things.
Rudolf Innig performs on the Walcker organ in St. Mary’s Church in Schramberg from the 1830s to the organ by the Kuhn Company in St. Anthony’s Parish Church in Zurich from 1914, the edition offers an overview of an extremely exciting epoch in Central European organ design rather precisely corresponding to the Liechtenstein composer’s creative years – a must for all organ fans!
