Wolfgang Rübsam is internationally known for his over 100 highly acclaimed organ repertoire recordings of baroque and romantic literature, as well as for his Naxos Bach recordings on the modern piano. Since 2017 he has also made many recordings on the “Lautenwerk,” a special harpsichord with gut strings without dampers, an instrument that Johann Sebastian Bach loved very much because of its cantabile character.
When Wolfgang Rübsam won the Grand Prix de Chartres in interpretation in 1973, he became professor of church music and organ at Northwestern University in Chicago / Evanston, Illinois. During his 23-year tenure, he was also university organist at the University of Chicago for the Rockefeller Memorial Chapel. In the 14 years following, he taught at the University of Music in Saarbrücken Germany. Rubsam has given numerous concerts and master classes in the USA and in Europe, as well as serving on juries for the most renowned international organ competitions.
