Notes and Editorial Reviews

In the development of Johann Sebastian Bach‘s genius, musical ideas often migrated from one instrument to another, transforming and transfiguring themselves before acquiring a definitive form. The organ and harpsichord pieces presented in this recording mirror each other. Following the same musical inspiration, Bach explores the idioms and technical possibilities of both instruments, often evoking on one instrument the idiom of the other. Maurizio Croci performs these works with aplomb. He is no stranger to Bach’s work, and has performed J. S. Bach’s complete organ works and has also recorded several albums devoted to Bach and his contemporaries. He regularly gives masterclasses on early keyboard music, and currently serves as Organ Read more Professor at the Haute Ecole de Musique de Lausanne as well as Harpsichord Professor at the Civica Scuola di Musica in Milan.
