CD Reviews

Beautiful if you like the organ
Vlmastra | Akron, OH | 08/09/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I'm very surprised this hasn't gotten any reviews! This is good music, and you'll like it if you like Bach's organ compositions. Buxtehude had a strong influence on Bach, the latter of which traveled over 400 km to see the former, and stayed for three months. The CD begins with a very grand and virtuosic praeludium, a specialty of Buxtehude, which lasts nine and a half minutes. This is followed by relaxed, beautiful choral preludes, similar to some of Bach's choral preludes. This is followed by a chaconne, two more chorale preludes (including the famous Ein feste Burg ist unser Gott), a setting of the Te Deum, two more choral preludes framing a passacaglia, and a final Praeludium of eleven minutes. Wolfgang Rubsam is a talented organist and he chooses all the right stops for these works. This is a good disc if you want to explore the composer who had a strong influence on Bach."
