Synopsis

Album Description
After the sublime rendering of the works that were composed before 1683 in meantone temperament and the progressive, bold, theatrical, and very personal style of Buxtehude's later organ works in the previous volumes, Koopman here demonstrates the different improvisatory styles that were common practice under 17th century German organists.

Koopman Beats the Competition
Paul Van de Water | Virginia, USA | 03/01/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Ton Koopman's traversal of the complete works (opera omnia) of Dieterich Buxtehude gets better with every installment. This disc is the ninth in the series and the fourth volume of organ works. It is played on a 17th century three-manual organ in meantone tuning in the village of Basedow in northern Germany, not far from Buxtehude's base in Lubeck. Koopman has again chosen a varied program of freely composed preludes, fugues in the Italian canzona manner, and chorale preludes. The performances are bright and lively, and the recording vividly captures the ambience of the church. In a crowded field, Koopman is definitely the best.
