Johanna Senfter (1879?1961) is one of the most interesting composers of the late Romantic period. She studied piano and composition at the Frankfurt Conservatoire 1895?1903 and thereafter in Leipzig with Max Reger 1908/9. Her most significant legacy is her organ music, which takes up the contrapuntal, highly chromatic composition techniques used by her teacher. These ten chorale preludes Op. 73 were written in 1930 and are suitable for concert or liturgical performance.
