Editorial Reviews

Product Description

To most people, Wausau, Wisconsin brings to mind insurance, mostly the TV commercials where everyone mispronounces the town's name. But to organ aficionados, the town located amid central Wisconsin's farms and forests is the home of one of the finest north German-style organs in American -- the Jaeckel organ at Salem Lutheran Church. This CD is the first commercial recording of the Wausau organ, which is modeled after the organs Bach knew quite well, particularly the beautiful instruments of Arp Schnitger (1648-1719) upon which organ-builder Daniel Jaeckel modeled this organ in Wausau. Schrader says "its highly expressive winding heightens the vocal character on which Bach's contrapuntal music is based. On this organ, Bach's music sings as freshly today as it did when it was new." In contrast to many other Bach organ interpreters, Schrader presents an unromanticized, more authentically baroque performance -- crisp attacks, generally faster tempos, and tasteful ornamentation including a cadenza near the end of the C-major toccata. This style is particularly well-suited to the Jaeckel organ.


Cedille...has scored a success with Chicagoan Schrader...a vivid listening experience. -- San Jose Mercury News

The recording has admirable focus and clarity . . . yet there is no lack of ambiance. Essential for Bach organ fans. -- Chicago Tribune

Some music commentators maintain that Bach's work was so near perfect that the Baroque style had nowhere else to go, hence Mozart. If that is true, this recording should mark the end of Bach Toccata and Fugue recodrings. I have listened to just about all the Bach toccata and fugue recordings from 1960 on and this is THE one to own. The instrument is amazing in its tone, clarity and voicing. The performance is more of the quicker paced Barogue style but actaully enhances the melodic content of the works. Ach - old Johaan Sebastian would be pleased.
