Notes and Editorial Reviews

Featuring the mighty Prelude and Fugue in E minor – a work that disregarded all the trends of the time and displays Bach’s total individuality – and the unique Organ Concerto in D minor, this fourth volume of organ works from Robert Quinney demonstrates how the ritornello structure was central to Bach’s mature style. A selection of chorale-based pieces are also explored including the remarkable twelve-movement Partita on ‘Sei gegrusset, Jesu gutig’. Robert Quinney is Organist of New College, Oxford. In addition to the daily direction of New College’s world-famous choir, his work comprises teaching, lecturing, and examining, as a Tutorial Fellow of the college and an Associate Professor at the University Faculty of Music. He maintains a Read more parallel career as a solo organist, and is a prolific recording artist and made debuts at the Royal Festival Hall and BBC Proms in 2017. “The disc a pure unfolding of pleasure.” (The Sunday Times) Read less
