About the album

Re-issue in Globe's 6000 series of GLO 5063 from 1991. The original issue has been out of stock for quite some time. but orders for it kept coming in, so it is back! This is also a new digital transfer of the original digital master, with some enhancement to the already glorious sound. Although Mozart never wrote a single piece for organ solo (amazingly, because he considered the organ the greatest o finstruments and played it when and where he could), a great many of his keyboard works are eminently suited for performance on organ, as are of course the famous pieces he wrote for mechanical clocks and such.The Robustelly organ in Helmond from 1772 is probably the most suitable instrument that can be found in Europe for these works.
Mozart uitgevoerd op orgel
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart componeerde geen enkel werk voor orgel solo. Dit is verrassend, aangezien hij het orgel als ‘grootste onder de instrumenten’ beschouwde en het bespeelde waar en wanneer hij kon. Een groot aantal van zijn klavierwerken leent zich echter uitstekend voor een uitvoering op orgel, net als zijn beroemde werken voor mechanische klokken en dergelijke instrumenten. Het Robustelly orgel uit 1772 in Helmond is waarschijnlijk het meest geschikte Europese instrument voor deze werken.

Het oorspronkelijke album is uit 1991. Nadat de originele uitgave een tijdje uit de voorraad was, maar de bestellingen maar binnen bleven komen werd er gekozen voor een heruitgave met verbeterde geluidskwaliteit. Deze versie is nu hier te beluisteren!

Mozart was a child prodigy. Already competent on keyboard and violin, he composed from the age of five and performed before European royalty. Along with Johann Sebastian Bach and Ludwig van Beethoven, Mozart is considered to be one of the most influential composers of all of music's history. Within the classical tradition, he was able to develop new musical concepts which left an everlasting impression on all the composers that came after him. Together with Joseph Haydn and Ludwig van Beethoven he is part of the First Viennese School. At 17, Mozart was engaged as a musician at the Salzburg court, but grew restless and traveled in search of a better position. From 1763 he traveled with his family through all of Europe for three years and from 1769 he traveled to Italy and France with his father Leopold after which he took residence in Paris. On July 3rd, 1778, his mother passed away and after a short stay in Munich with the Weber family, his father urged him to return to Salzburg, where he was once again hired by the Bishop. While visiting Vienna in 1781, he was dismissed from his Salzburg position. He chose to stay in the capital, where he achieved fame but little financial security. During his final years in Vienna, he composed many of his best-known symphonies, concertos, and operas, and portions of the Requiem, which was largely unfinished at the time of his death.
