Brink Bush: Organ Works Of Wilhelm Middelschulte, Vol. I
Konzelmann-Orgel, Saint Anne Church, Rochester NY

Brink Bush plays organ works of the turn-of-the-century Chicago organist, Wilhelm Middelschulte, whose Perpetuum mobile was made famous by his student, Virgil Fox. Middelschulte was organist of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra and held other prestigious positions as a teaching musician and composer. His works are reminiscent of his contemporary, Max Reger, and as a Romantic contrapuntalist, his works are more related to the style of Thiele, Ziehn, and Bach. Virtuosic organist Brink Bush plays the recent Konzelman pipe organ at St. Anne Roman Catholic Church, Rochester, NY.
