 Wolfgang Rubsam Soloist


 A native of Leipzig and steeped in the musical tradition of JS 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 colour 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.

" ...this CD is primarily characterised by a compelling symbiosis of player, music and organ ... A fine inroduction to the music of one of the 20th century’s most infuential organists but, equally, a fitting tribute to the genius of one of its greatest organ builders." ****

Chris Bragg - Choir & Organ music magazine - January/February 2013


"...This world première recording by organist Wolfgang Rübsam, who studied under Helmut Walcha, was captured on the 2004 John Brombaugh Organ Op. 35, in the First  Presbyterian Church, Springfield, Illinois. An instrument perfectly suited in size and tonal quality for this music. It is the first in a projected complete cycle of all 4 volumes of these wonderful Chorale Preludes. If you are a pipe organ music enthusiast looking for something new that is at once a diversion from the norm and yet totally rooted in the last 400 years of music, the organ works of Helmut Walcha are a rewarding experience. Proof once again that first impressions are usually way off the mark.Naxos once again enriches our listening experience by presenting us with hitherto unheard music, and great music at that."
