Innig’s pilgrimage through Rheinberger’s organ works arrives at some of the composer’s most intense, broodingly chromatic writing in these two sonatas. His flowing, characterful playing finds a natural home here, and he contrasts well the dark intensity of the outer movements with the inner ones’ lighter shades. Adequately recorded. Stephen Haylett
