Performer Composer

Notes & Reviews:

A native of Leipzig and steeped in the musical tradition of J. S. Bach, Helmut Walcha was one of the most influential organists of the 20th century. Building on Baroque examples, Walcha started composing the Chorale Preludes during the war years and they became popular teaching pieces as well as ideal vehicles for expressing the clarity and color of organs both historic and new. As one of Walcha's most renowned students, Wolfgang Rübsam's interpretations are uniquely authoritative. This is the first of four volumes of Walcha's complete Chorale Preludes .Wolfgang Rübsam has recorded all of Bach's organ music for us and a great deal more besides, and his recordings of J.S. Bach's Das Orgelbüchlein (8.553031 and 8.553032) were acclaimed as "superb throughout" ( Penguin Guide).

American Record Guide, March / April 2013
Wolfgang Rübsam (b 1946) studied with Walcha in Frankfurt from 1967 to 1969. He brings to his performances here the insight gained from his first-hand knowledge of the composer. He plays the large three-manual John Brombaugh organ at the First Presbyterian Church of Springfield, Illinois. It is well suited to Walcha's artistic personality in the chorale preludes This recording is part of the Naxos "Organ Encyclopedia" series.
