 Josef Still Soloist


Reger’s contrapuntal mastery has earned him the accolade of the greatest German composer for organ since Bach. Though a Catholic he drew on Lutheran traditions as can be heard in his Easy Chorale Preludes, Op 67. Totalling 52 in number, in three volumes, the first fifteen are performed here by Josef Still, one of Reger’s most critically admired contemporary champions, whose performance in Volume 9 of this series (8.555905) was dubbed ‘utterly compelling’ by Gramophone. He also performs the Five Easily Performable Preludes and Fugues, Op 56 which, through their demands, belie their laconic title.

 "... This generously filled disc is cleanly recorded and makes a satisfying programme ..."

Malcolm Riley - Gramophone magazine - June 2014


 "... The earlier, deceptively titled Five Easily Performale Preludes and Fugues are more nimbly despatched, Josef Still’s steady hand making light work of their thinly disguised technical demands.".       ****

Michael Quinn - Choir & Organ magazine - May/June 2014

"...Still imparts just the right unsettled air to the hushed exposition, and pulls out all the stops (pun definitely intended!) in the climactic final pages without dragging the pulse that he’s kept rock steady from the start. The production values of Wolfgang Rübsam (no mean organist himself) do ample justice to the Johannes Klais Organ in Trier Cathedral and, of course, to Still’s admirable musicianship."
