Notes and Editorial Reviews

Johann Ludwig Krebs received his musical training from 1726 at the Leipzig Thomasschule under the tutelage of Johann Sebastian Bach. Krebs obviously made an impression on his teacher, for in 1729-31 he was one of Bach's cantata copyists. While Krebs was at university he also played harpsichord in Bach's collegium musicum. Krebs was highly regarded by his contemporaries as an organist and a composer.
This recording by organist Gerhard Gnann is the first volume in a projected series of the complete organ works of Krebs. The influence of Bach colors Krebs' Toccata and Fugue in E major, particularly in the pedal work that opens the piece. Krebs' music does more than just imitate Bach. His chorale setting of "Ach Gott, erhör mein Seufzen"
Read more opens with a chromatic introduction that looks forward to later musical styles. Gnann plays the Gabler organ at the Weingarten Abbey in Germany with dexterity, and captures the proper balance of grandeur and reverence in the chorales. Read less
