About the album

World famous organist Ton Koopman plays works by Buxtehude.
Aanstekelijk spel van Ton Koopman in de complete orgelwerken van Buxtehude
Opera Omnia Organ Works bevat de complete orgelwerken van Dieterich (Dietrich, Diderich) Buxtehude. Ton Koopman speelt deze orgelconcerten op 5 prachtige historische orgels in Noord Duitsland. De orgelmuziek van Buxtehude is een prachtig rijk oevre. Uiteenlopend van ingetogen, maar knap gecomponeerde koraalbewerkingen tot spectaculaire stukken in de 'stylus phantasticus'. De meest vrije en ongebonden manier van componeren, dan weer snel, dan aarzelend, de ene keer eenstemmig, de andere keer meerstemmig. Juist dit repertoire maakte Buxtehude in zijn tijd bekend en geliefd. En wie kan dit repertoire beter vertolken dan Ton Koopman, het is op zijn lijf geschreven. Door zijn manier van spelen blijf je van begin tot eind geboeid. Aan de opnamen zijn ook de complete orgelwerken van Nicolaus Bruhns toegevoegd. Deze begaafde leerling van Buxtehude werd beroemd door de orgelstijl van Buxtehude op zijn eigen wijze verder te ontwikkelen.

Buxtehude was een Deens-Duitse organist en door velen bewonderde componist uit de barokperiode. Hij componeerde vocale en instrumentale muziek. Zijn orgelwerken omvatten een aanzienlijk deel van het standaard orgelrepertoire van onze hedendaagse kerkdiensten. Buxtehude wordt beschouwd als de belangrijkste Duitse componist in de periode tussen Heinrich Schütz en Bach. Zijn stijl heeft veel componisten sterk beïnvloed. Hij was één van de grote voorbeelden van Johann Sebastian Bach. Het verhaal gaat dat Bach, toen 20 jaar, in 1705 helemaal naar Lübeck liep - 400 km - om Dieterich Buxtehude daar in de Marienkirche te horen spelen.

Wellicht dat die anekdote Ton Koopman inspireerde tot zijn project Opera Omnia om het gehele bewaard gebleven oeuvre van Buxtehude uit te voeren en op te nemen. Er was hem veel aan gelegen Buxtehude als het brein achter de vocale muziek van Bach te erkennen. Koopman is een van de meest vooraanstaande uitvoerders van oude muziek en voorzittter van het Internationale Buxtehude Gesellschaft.

Dieterich Buxtehude

Among the general public, Dieterich Buxtehude is mostly known due to the admiration Johann Sebastian Bach had for his organ and composing skills, for which Bach traveled to the North German city of Lübeck to stay with him for four months, no less. This says quite something about the quality of Buxtehude's performance, but even more so about the influence it had on Bach and all composers after him. Yet, nowadays Buxtehude's music does not need Bach to survive, as a matter of fact it is extraordinarily beautiful just by itself!

Among the general public, Dieterich Buxtehude is mostly known due to the admiration Johann Sebastian Bach had for his organ and composing skills, for which Bach traveled to the North German city of Lübeck to stay with him for four months, no less. This says quite something about the quality of Buxtehude's performance, but even more so about the influence it had on Bach and all composers after him. Yet, nowadays Buxtehude's music does not need Bach to survive, as a matter of fact it is extraordinarily beautiful just by itself! Buxtehude was originally Danish, but he spent most of him life in Lübeck. His so-called 'Abendmusik', which was a series of evening concerts outside of the liturgy, grew famous. In the works he wrote for these occasions, his enormous fantasy and creative freedom truly shows. As an organ player, Buxtehude was widely famous. If you would listen to his Organ Preludes, you would quickly know why. Buxtehude manages to combine an unprecedented virtuosity with a large variety of styles and techniques. No wonder Bach traveled all that way to see him!
