19th Century German organ works

Post by HullandHellandHalifax » Tue Oct 27, 2009 9:47 pm

I don't really know what to call this thread because I would hope that we have some more specific threads in this forum, but for now I will leave it fairly broad in its compass.
I was asked recently by a friend for the Adolphe Hesse (1809-1863) Variations on an original theme. Hesse wrote two sets one in A and one in Ab, fortunately I have both so thought I would share them with you as they are not so frequently played.
My scanners programme has been acting strangely and orientates the pages as it sees fit, so I hope they print up OK
best wishes

Hi Brian, great that You are posting Hesse music, however it looks like it comes from some bigger edition (number of pages like 91+). Do You have the rest by the chance?
Anyway, here's some very interesting music by Camille Schumann.

Hi arturo, thanks for the Camillo Schumann, yes I have the rest of the album of 40 pieces and I also have another album of Hesse, it looks like my scanner is going to be on overtime. All I can say is watch this space, it might be a couple of days though, but I will post as soon as I can.
best wishes
Brian

As a composer Johann Gottlob Töpfer (1791-1870) is more or less forgotten today. But his name is still well known in the pipe organ builder branch, because Töpfer created some important formulas for the measurements of pipes.
He wrote many works on the organ: Die Orgelbaukunst (1833); Die Scheiblersche Stimmmethode (1842); Die Orgel, Zweck und Beschaffenheit ihrer Teile (1843); Organistenschule (1845); Lehrbuch der Orgelbaukunst (1856). You could find his book Die Orgel on Google Books (in German language only).

In 1830 Johann Gottlob Töpfer was appointed as the organist of the Stadtkirche St. Peter und Paul (the so-called Herderkirche) in Weimar and stayed in this post for the next 40 years. By his contemporaries Töpfer was estimated as virtuoso and organ expert and he had a relationship of mutual respect with Liszt.
Attached you find Töpfer's Choral Prelude and Fugue to Was mein Gott will, das g'scheh' allzeit.

Best regards,

Leo

Hi,
attached two little works:
A Canon by Louis Kindscher (1800-1875), a music director in Köthen,
and
a Choralvorspiel by Gustav Flügel (1812-1900), an interesting composer who was befriended with Robert and Clara Schumann.

Regards,

Leo

Attached you find a short Choral Prelude to Christe, du Lamm Gottes by Eduard Steglich. Unf. I could not find the life dates of Steglich, but the score provides the information, that Herr Steglich was a 'Seminaroberlehrer und Musikdirektor in Grimma' (~ Teacher and Director of Music in Grimma, a little town in Saxonia).
The score was printed c. 1860.

Robert Schaab (1817–1887) arranged a lot of works for the organ, but here comes one of his original compositions, the Trio Jesu, meine Freude.

Here comes a Fantasia titled 'Den König segne Gott!' (~'God bless the king'), that was the title of the so called 'Sachsenlied' (~Song of the Saxons). The Fantasia was composed by Julius Bernhard Brähmig (1822-1872), in his time a well-reputated teacher and arrangeur. I bet you know the theme.
