Performer Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Organist Halgeir Schiager's first release on the LAWO Classics label is a tribute to German composer and organist Johann Gottlob Schneider (1789 - 1864). Today Schneider is virtually forgotten, but in his time he was compared to Paganini and given the sobriquet "king of organists." He represents organ literature between Bach and Mendelssohn, traditionally regarded as a period of decline.

American Record Guide, May/June 2016
This recording presents a selection of his works including the substantial Fantasies and Fugues, short liturgical pieces, and his earliest documented organ work, Thema mit Variationen, which at one time was attributed to one of Bach's students. These are substantial, engaging works demonstrating the strong influence of Mendelssohn and Schumann, with hints of Lisztian virtuosity.

Schiager delivers fine performances on a marvelous Brodrene Torkildsen organ in the Steinkjer Church, Steinkjer, Norway. The booklet offers extensive notes on the composer, the organ specification, and the registrations for each piece.
