Performer Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Hansjörg Albrecht has selected the organ version of the Rákoczi March from La Damnation de Faust as the opening of his new SACD in Oehms Classics Organ Transcription Series. More or less like an overture, he makes a virtuoso piece out of it – a veritable display of fireworks in the style of Horowitz or Liszt (who wrote the Symphonie fantastique piano transcription). Together with the Symphonie fantastique, this Berlioz series is now complete. Born 1972, conductor, organist and harpsichordist Hansjörg Albrecht is one of the most versatile musicians of his generation.

American Record Guide, March/April 2015
Albrecht is the artistic director of the Munich Bach Choir and Orchestra, founded by the legendary Karl Richter. Along with extensive playing as an organist, he has appeared as conductor with numerous choirs and orchestras. This perhaps explains his superb grasp of these scores, approaching them from the point of view of a conductor, which is really what an organist needs to do when learning and performing orchestral transcriptions. This is Volume 10 in his series for Oehms, "The Art of Organ Transcription". A must have for the organ transcription lover.
