Editorial Reviews

Having been born half a century after Heinrich Schutz, the 'father of German musicians', and a little less than half a century before J. S. Bach, Dietrich Buxtehude was a living link between the founder of Protestant Baroque music and its greatest master.

By Doug - Haydn Fan VINE VOICE on October 15, 2008
Format: Audio CD
This recording, previously issued on the DaCapo label, showcases the still under appreciated music of this towering genius of the German Baroque. From the very cover, taken from a contemporary painting of Buxtehude and fellow musician Johann Adam Reincken; through the excellent playing of twenty keyboard selections by harpsichordist Lars Ulrik Mortensen; to the exemplary and unbeatable notes from Buxtehude's main modern critical champion Kerala Snyder - this CD is a first class production all the way. At Naxos' inexpensive price it's only drawback is that you can't hear the samples, as you can on the other Naxos Buxtehude harpsichord CD.

For some reason Amazon lists the wrong selections.
The proper contents list is as follows;

1. Toccata in G major, BuxWV 165
2. Wie schon leuchtet der Morgenstern, in G major, BuxWV 223
3-6. Suite in D minor, BuxWV 233
7. Fuga in B flat major, BuxWV 176
8-11. Suite in C major, BuxWV 226
12-14. Aria in A minor, BuxWV 249
15. Canzona in C major, BuxWV 166
16-19. Partita: Auf meinen lieben Gott, in E minor, BuxWV 179
20. Canzonetta in A minor, BuxWV 225

But don't worry about samples! This is most assuredly the work of a major composer, filled with a level of art quite the equal to his own best compositions. As Professor Snyder observes, Buxtehude's keyboard work falls into three basic categories, 'each associated with particular instruments, free works such as praeludia and toccatas, many of them designated "pedaliter", and thus for organ; settings of german chorales, most of them also requiring the pedal; and...secular dance suites and variations, presumably for harpsichord.

Great harpsichord music! Good recording, attention, and playing!

These pieces are played with aptitude and a dash of flair as the sound seems to purposely fly off the tips of the fingers. At times it sounds like a piano-forte or even a clasical guitar.

Book-stuh-HOO-duh tried to marry off his daughters to Handel, Bach, Telemann, and others promising them his position after his passing as a bonus. Neither did, they only came to hear him play and learn from him.

If you like this get Harpsichord Music Vol. 2 also. Naxos has great quality!!! I paid less than $5.00 for this on the internet, shop around!

Good day !

This is wonderful and little-known music. Bach and Handel both leaned a lot from him...
