Gerard Bunk (1888–1958) was born in Rotterdam and thanks to Max Reger’s support, became a lecturer at the Dortmund Conservatory and organist at the famous Walcker organ at St. Reinoldi. He was one of the greatest organists of the first half of the 20th century who, besides Reger, was able to develop his own characteristic style. His organ compositions consist of free individual works, character pieces, chorale preludes and six large-scale concert works.
