Although Rheinberger composed dramatic and orchestral, sacred and secular music, he is now remembered for his twenty organ sonatas and other shorter compositions for the instrument. These works, with their echoes of Schubert, Mendelssohn, Schumann, Chopin, Liszt and, of course, J. S. Bach, nonetheless demonstrate Rheinberger’s own finely honed melodic sense, harmonic development and clear-voiced textures. All eight volumes of Rheinberger’s Organ Works were recorded on the magnificent 72-stop, four-manual Rieger- Sauer Organ in Fulda Cathedral. For details of Volumes 1–7 please see inside this booklet.
