About the album

This CD features 24 chorale preludes for the organ (BWV 645-668). Without exception, they stand in the tradition of the chorale-based music of Bach‘s predecessors. They therefore include pieces with the unornamented chorale tune in the pedal (BWV 651 and 661), others with the melody ornamented (BWV 653, 654, 659 and 662), chorale trios (BWV 655 and 664), and works employing traditional contrapuntal techniques like canon, fugue and imitation (BWV 652 and 665).
Diese CD enthält 24 Choralvorspiele für die Orgel (BWV 645-668). Sie stehen ausnahmslos in der Tradition der Chormusik der Vorgänger von Bach. Es handelt sich um Stücke mit ungeschönter Choralstimmung im Pedal (BWV 651 und 661), mit melodischer Ornamentik (BWV 653,654,659 und 662), mit Choraltrios (BWV 655 und 664) und mit traditionellen kontrapunktischen Techniken wie Kanon, Fuge und Imitation (BWV 652 und 665).

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.

Nederlands Dagblad, 28-1-2018

He plays remarkably cool phrases transparent and clear and makes the impression a good deal above the notes.
