About the album

An extraordinary program of relatively unknown harpsichord works by Bach, most of them written for his own use as a 'travelling' harpsichord virtuoso before he settled down and became famous as Cantor and composer of such great works as the Passions.

The young Bach was an extraordinary virtuoso. These early keyboard works show a great awareness of the prevailing musical trends around him: the toccatas of Dietrich Buxtehude and johann Pachelbel, the French keyboard styles of Jean-Henri d'Anglebert and Nicholas de Grigny, and the more experimental styles of Matthias Weckmann and Johann Kaspar Kerll. Richard Egarr has acquired a great international reputation with his recordings of the complete keyboard works by Froberger, among many others.

Buitengewone klavecimbelwerken van virtuoos Bach
Dit is een album met relatief onbekende klavecimbelwerken van Bach, waarvan de meeste voor eigen gebruik zijn geschreven. Ze worden uitgevoerd door de Britse klavecimbelspeler Richard Egarr.

De jonge Bach was een buitengewone virtuoos. Deze vroegere klavierwerken laten zien dat Bach meer dan bekend was met de heersende muzikale trends: de toccatas van Dietrich Buxtehude en Johann Pachelbel, de Franse pianostijlen van Jean-Henri d’Anglebert en Nicholas de Grigny en de meer experimentele stijlen van Matthias Weckmann en Johann Kaspar Kerll.

Richard Egarr is een Britse klavecimbelspeler en heeft een grote internationale reputatie verworven met onder andere zijn opnames voor Globe van de complete pianowerken van Froberger. Met dit album brengt hij buitengewone klavecimbelwerken ten gehore van Bach, werken die zo meer bekendheid kunnen krijgen.

Composer(s)

Johann Sebastian Bach

Johann Sebastian Bach was a German composer and musician of the Baroque period. He enriched established German styles through his skill in counterpoint, harmonic and motivic organisation, and the adaptation of rhythms, forms, and textures from abroad, particularly from Italy and France. Bach's compositions include the Brandenburg Concertos, the Goldberg Variations, the Mass in B minor, two Passions, and hundreds of cantatas. His music is revered for its technical command, artistic beauty, and intellectual depth.  Bach's abilities as an organist were highly respected during his lifetime, although he was not widely recognised as a great composer until a revival of interest in and performances of his music in the first half of the 19th century. He is now generally regarded as one of the greatest composers of all time.
