5.0 out of 5 stars Award-Winning Performances, and Deservedly So May 7, 2005
Format:Audio CD
Although Dieterich Buxtehude (c. 1637-1707) spent most of his life in Lübeck, Germany, the Danes have always been proud to claim him as one of their own because he spent his formative years in Denmark. The Danish record label, da capo, originally published these performances of his Sonatas, Op. 1, for violin, viola da gamba and harpsichord, in 1995 and it won a Danish 'Grammy' that year. And no wonder. These are marvelous performances by three marvelous musicians -- John Holloway, violin, Jaap ter Linden, viola da gamba, and Lars Ulrik Mortensen, harpsichord. Holloway has recorded much baroque music, including a terrific set of Biber sonatas. For a time ter Linden seemed to appear on every baroque recording that came my way. Mortensen participated in one of my favorite recordings of this past year, a set that contained performances of Bach harpsichord concerti. Holloway, long the concertmaster of Roger Norringston's London Classical Players, has just been named music director of Atlanta's hot baroque ensemble, New Trinity Baroque.

Buxtehude is remembered mostly as a composer of organ and sacred music. He was organist at the main church in Lübeck for almost forty years. The story of how Bach walked to Lübeck to study with Buxtehude is well-known. He wrote very little chamber music, and this disc is one of a series of three that contains the lot. One presumes that Naxos will reissue Vols. 2 & 3 in due time. Op. 1 consists of seven 'sonatas,' which are composed partially in his 'stylus phantasticus' in which each of the instrumentalists, rather as in jazz, is allowed free improvisation for a few measures in turn. Actually, of course, Buxtehude composed those measures, but the effect is one of spontaneous improvisation for each of the players.

5.0 out of 5 stars Provides a context for J.S. Bach December 26, 2006
Format:Audio CD
This is wonderful stuff. You can listen to it with pleasure without concerning yourself with history or musicology at all.

But if you ARE interested in such matters, Buxtehude was not only n influence upon, he was an inspiration to, the incomparable J.S. Bach. It takes nothing away from Bach to say that his genius didn't come from nowhere, it didn't drop onto this planet from Mars.

And when you listen with that thought in mind, you get extra levels of satisfaction from this recording.

5.0 out of 5 stars Soothing Sonatas! February 13, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The sonatas of Buxtehude (book-stuh-HOO-duh) are very pleasant and gratifying! They soothe like a friendly pet lying at your side warm and loving. Good recording and reverb!

Much different and definitively more appealing than his harpsichord or organ music to me. Get both this and opus 2. Naxos is fine quality!!!

This cd is so soothing, rich, and mellow in tone and flavor. Truly worth spending around $5.00 for in every sense! A couple clicks and it will be sent to your mailbox. Naxos' Buxthehude and Corelli sonatas cd's have changed my listening pleasure. They fill the perfect genre of relaxing talented music WITHOUT the distracting crescendos and decrescendos (the highs and lows) that disrupt your concentration when one minute it is to loud and then the next minute you can't hear it. This music just flows along charming the air like incense.

My cat loves this type of music !! She is truly serene and relaxed....and purrs as if in meditation!

Good Day Friends!
