Helmut Walcha: Chorale Preludes, Vol. 4 / Delbert Disselhorst, Organ of the First Presbyterian Church, Springfield IL

Album Summary

>Walcha, Helmut : Choral Preludes for organ, Vol. 4
Performer Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Helmut Walcha was one of the most influential organists of the 20th century. His Chorale Preludes are works of considerable expressiveness and polyphonic clarity, which enrich the Lutheran tradition by combining the characteristics of the Baroque masters with highly individual organ colors and sonorities. This is the final volume of this first complete recording of Walcha's organ works. The others can be heard on Naxos 8.572910, 8.572911 and 8.572912.

MusicWeb International, 2nd October 2013
Walcha's apparent simplicity of conception disguises a creative mind of uncommon clarity of expression which reveals itself more readily over extended periods of listening.
