About the album

NORDSTOGA’S NINTH
In his ninth and tenth of a total of fourteen releases of Bach’s collected organ works, Kåre Nordstoga pulls together much of what was not collected from the composer’s side — preludes and fugues.

The double form prelude (or toccata) and fugue has been an established form of composition since the 1600s. The North Germans Dietrich Buxtehude and Georg Böhm made a powerful contribution to this contrastive style in which the freer first part and the more rigorous second part are united in a dynamic whole. The young Johann Sebastian harvested significant impressions from these two composers during his time in Lübeck and Lüneburg, and this album was recorded in Lüneburg.

Kåre Nordstoga (b. 1954) studied at the Norwegian Academy of Music under Søren Gangfløt, Bjørn Boysen and Kaare Ørnung, among others. Following his debut concert in 1978, he continued his studies under David Sanger in London, and he was for a time organist at Ullern Church, before coming to Oslo Cathedral in 1984. He has also been associated with the Norwegian Academy of Music, where he was appointed professor in 1994. Nordstoga is an active concert organist.
NORDSTOGA'S NEUNTE
In seiner neunten und zehnten von insgesamt vierzehn Veröffentlichungen von Bachs gesammelten Orgelwerken fasst Kåre Nordstoga vieles zusammen, was nicht von der Seite des Komponisten zusammengestellt wurde - Präludien und Fugen.
Die Doppelform Präludium (oder Toccata) und Fuge ist seit dem 17. Jahrhundert eine etablierte Form der Komposition. Die Norddeutschen Dietrich Buxtehude und Georg Böhm haben einen starken Beitrag zu diesem kontrastreichen Stil geleistet, in dem der freiere erste Teil und der strengere zweite Teil zu einem dynamischen Ganzen vereint wurden. Der junge Johann Sebastian sammelte während seiner Zeit in Lübeck und Lüneburg bedeutende Eindrücke von diesen beiden Komponisten und dieses Album wurde in Lüneburg aufgenommen.
Kåre Nordstoga (*1954) studierte an der Norwegischen Musikakademie unter anderem bei Søren Gangfløt, Bjørn Boysen und Kaare Ørnung. Nach seinem Debütkonzert 1978 setzte er sein Studium bei David Sanger in London fort und war zeitweise Organist an der Ullern Church, bevor er 1984 in die Kathedrale von Oslo kam. Er war auch mit der Norwegischen Musikakademie verbunden, wo er 1994 zum Professor ernannt wurde. Nordstoga ist ein aktiver Konzertorganist.

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.
