Albrecht, Hansjörg

This series marks the 200th anniversary of the birth of Anton Bruckner, which falls in 2024. It’s dedicated to Bruckner’s symphonies, most of them recorded in new transcriptions for organ by Hansjörg Albrecht. The 6th recording was made on the church organ of St. Margaret in Munich with the transcription of Bruckner’s 5th Symphony by Erwin Horn. The bonus track on this volume is the composition “Poème pour orgue” for organ by French composer Françoise Choveaux who took several notes out of Bruckner’s Fifth and created a window out of the Symphony. This bonus track is a digital only release.
