Buxtehude: Complete Organ Works, Vol. 2

Friedhelm Flamme (Christoph-Treutmann-Orgel Klosterkirche St. Georg, Grauhof)

Organ Works by Dietrich Buxtehude Vol. 2 The first CD of Vol. 2 of Dietrich Buxtehude’s organ works focuses on chorale settings in combination with three free preludes, thereby offering a representative cross section of his organ oeuvre. His extant works for Advent and Epiphany comprise chorale fantasias, a Magnificat, and nine organ chorales. Buxtehude displays his full artistic mastery in the expressive interpretation and elegant embellishment of the chorale verse in these short pieces mostly designed in the »trio style,« that is, with the solo leading of the treble parts, separated middle voices, and the foundation in the bass.

The second CD of Vol. 2 presents various free forms and a series of chorale settings for which the composer wrote several versions in which he interpreted and emphasized various aspects of the text. In order to underscore the special features of the personal interpretive style representing the result of his decades of occupation with almost the entire Northern German repertoire, Friedhelm Flamme once again has chosen the magnificent Treutmann organ in the Grauhof Monastery near Goslar, an instrument preserved largely in its original form. This organ brings out Buxtehude’s innovative, visionary musical artistry in a much different way than Northern Germany’s famous Schnitger organs.
