Notes and Editorial Reviews

Bach on the Silbermann cathedral organ in Arlesheim, Switzerland, performed by Oslo Cathedral organist Kåre Nordstoga! Andreas Silbermann, brother of the more famous organ builder Gottfried Silbermann, originally built this organ. The cathedral’s acoustics are superb, and although the organ has been rebuilt over the years, it still has the unique warmth and clarity of sound that was the hallmark of the baroque masters. On the first of the two CDs, we find all of Bach’s transcriptions for organ. Three are Bach’s arrangements of violin concertos by Antonio Vivaldi, and Prince Johann Ernst of Saxe-Weimar originally wrote two others. He died at age 21, and is perhaps best remembered by music historians because Bach — while he was organist Read more at the ducal court in Weimar — transcribed the compositions for organ and cembalo. The second disc contains Bach’s famous Good Friday partita “Sei gegrüsset, Jesu gütig,” as well as many of the chorale arrangements not belonging to collections published in Bach’s time. Read less
