Johann Christian Heinrich Rinck was a celebrated organist and composer for his instrument. His talent developed itself at an early period, and, like Johann Schneider, he had the advantage of a direct traditional reading of the works of J.S. Bach, having studied at Erfurt (in 1786-1789) under Johann Christian Kittel, one of the great composers best pupils.
His reputation is based on his organ music, or rather on his;Practical Organ School; a standard work. Rincks. compositions for his instrument show no trace of such sublime influence as might have been looked for from a pupil, in the second generation, of Bach; throughout them fugue-writing is conspicuous by its absence, but his organ-pieces contain much that is interesting to an organ student.
The Prelude (Grave) and Fugue on B.A.C.H. is the last piece of 'Practical Organ School' op.55; last double fugue is an ideal hommage to Bach "Art of the Fugue".
