Gerhard Weinberger, Organ
Works by Rüdinger, Haas, Beer-Walbrunn, Schmid, Renner jun., Piechler and Geierhaas
This album strives to present organ music from the South German late Romantic period that has been fundamentally shaped by what is called the "Munich School".
The composers Gottfried Rüdinger, Joseph Haas, Anton Beer-Walbrunn, Joseph Schmid, Joseph Renner jun., Arthur Piechler and Gustav Geierhaas - many of them not known anymore today - were important public ﬁgures in their times who fundamentally inﬂuenced the musical life in Southern Germany and far beyond. With this CD, the organist Gerhard Weinberger wants to increase awareness of them and some of their works again - masterly interpreted and mostly recorded for the first time.
For many years, Weinberger has been acknowledged as an organist of international repute. In his extensive repertoire, works by e.g. J.S. Bach and Harald Genzmer play a large role, too. He has given numerous concerts in Germany and abroad (Korea, Japan, USA and South America) and has made about 50 CD recordings.
The new Goll organ in St. Martin Munich-Moosach/Germany was dedicated on 26 April 2015 (first CD recording!).
A Co-Production with BR KLASSIK Bavarian Broadcast Corp., Munich.

CD Review - highly commended!
»[...] This programme has clearly been a labour both of love and of dedicated research by Weinberger, [...] the recording quality, the splendid sound of this brand new organ and Weinberger's own playing combine to create a disc of real quality.«
