    Default Josef Gabriel Rheinberger

    I am enjoying learning about Rheinberger and listening to his music for the first time. Anyone else like this composer?

    I very much enjoy this:


    I am a big fan of the pipe organ. I like that Rheinberger uses it in chamber music as the "continuo", as in this :


    I would like to hear what you think of his music.

    He's a good solid composer. And that's not meant to be a subtle jab.

    One can't go wrong listening to him. I'll be listening to one of his most popular works "The Star of Bethlehem" in a few weeks.

    Rheinberger's Mass in Eb is a lovely work that represents him well as a "conservative" Romantic and also, like Brahms, a student of early music. Here's an interesting article about him:
