Notes and Editorial Reviews

Ullrich Böhme, organist at St Thomas Leipzig, plays the "Achtzehn Leipziger Choräle" at the Bach organ at St Thomas. The Marburg organ builder Gerald Woehl erected the instrument on the Northern gallery, opposite the Bach window, in the Bach year 2000. It is modelled on the organ building techniques and organ sound of the eighteenth century. Ullrich Böhme took up on this in his recording of the chorale cycle. While maintaining the clarity of the musical structure, its impact of sound is not to be mitigated by an all too timid registration. Böhme decided to precede the chorale arrangements with performances of the actual chorales for which he consciously chose another, no less historical instrument. In order to Read more do so, he set off to Störmthal, situated 20 kilometres southeast of Leipzig. The village of five-hundred inhabitants keeps in its church one of Saxony's greatest organ treasures: the Hildebrandt organ of 1723, which remains in its almost original form up to the present day. On 2 November of that year, it was inaugurated by Johann Sebastian Bach himself, after he had previously signed the report and given his approval of the instrument. On that same Sunday of 1723, Bach directed the debut performance of his cantata "Höchsterwünschtes Freudenfest" (BWV 194). Ullrich Böhme consciously places the original chorales which form the basis of the large-scale arrangements of the "Achtzehn Choräle" into the context of a village church, and thereby juxtaposes the different musical forms in meaningful way, lucidly claiming that - regardless of the actual place of performance - both works are essentially the same: liturgical music; an expression of faith at St Thomas Leipzig as much as at the Dorfkirche at Störmthal.
