Halgeir Schiager

Karl Wolfrum’s three organ sonatas were written before the turn of the twentieth century.

In all three sonatas, the composer tried a heterogeneous approach: technically, his works followed Bach, dramatically, the narrative concepts of the New German School and in terms of sound and aesthetics, a subtle use of the instrument’s solo voices and dynamic differentiation.

OehmsClassics now presents a recording with Norwegian organist Halgeir Schiager that was made in June 2011 in the Lutheran Church in Chemnitz in co-production with the Bavarian Radio Broadcasting Corporation.
