Bach is frequently represented in the guise of the 'old' Cantor of Leipzig, as we know from his famous portrait. But the majority of his organ works date from his youth, already clearly showing his genius. These pieces have a cool character, invention and lyricism that make them particularly endearing. Except for a few cantatas, they were written for organ or harpsichord, which were to remain throughout his life his favourite instruments, and those which he played himself as a great virtuoso.

As a leading concert organist, Prof. Jean-Christophe Geiser has enjoyed a rapid career since 1991 when at the age of 26 he was named competition winner for the prestigious position of titular organist of the Cathedral of Lausanne, Switzerland's most important gothic building. In 1993, he was appointed professor of organ at the Lausanne University of Music, where he is currently dean of the organ department. He is also artistic director of the Cathedral’s Concert Society.

Classical | MP3 CBR 320 kbps | Digital Booklet | 01:14:00 | 173 MB
Label: Brilliant Classics

This is Emanuele Cardi’s fourth album for Brilliant Classics after recordings which display this talented organist’s wide musical sympathies and talents, ranging from music by Bach’s contemporary Tunder (94901) to still more obscure delights from Naples (94622) and exuberant arrangements of Tchaikovsky and Saint‐Saëns for organ four-hands (94881). ‘He is a great connoisseur of Baroque repertoire,’ noted the Spanish magazine Codalario of Cardi’s Neapolitan disc, ‘and it shows in his ability to give these pieces such native colour: this is a remarkable album.’ On this occasion he has recorded an album which concludes with Bach’s most famous yet possibly most spurious work for organ, the Toccata and Fugue in D minor, whose Italianate flourishes surely have their origin in a work for violin, whether or not by Bach himself.

There are stops in between for a great deal of Bach, music of the Gothic era, the French Baroque (Mouret, Delalande, Rameau, etc), Gibbons, Handel (Alcina, La Resurrezione, Messiah, Italian cantatas), Telemann, Zelenka, Gabrieli, Desprez, Haydn, LeJeune, and plenty of the usual, as well as unusual, suspects. There’s also a final CD with selections of new releases (more Handel, Cavalli, Gesualdo, Vivaldi).

Much of Bach’s organ music was written during the earlier part of his career, culminating in the period he spent as court organist at Weimar. Among many well-known compositions we may single out the Dorian Toccata and Fugue in D minor, BWV 538, the Toccata, Adagio and Fugue, BWV 564, Fantasia and Fugue in G minor, BWV 542, Passacaglia and Fugue in C minor, BWV 582, Prelude and Fugue “St Anne”, BWV 552 (in which the fugue theme resembles the well-known English hymn of that name), Toccata and Fugue in D minor, BWV 565, and the Toccata and Fugue in F, BWV 540. Chorale preludes are compositions for organ that consist of short variations on simple hymn tunes for all seasons of the church year. Better-known melodies used include the Christmas In dulci jubilo, BWV 608, Puer natus in Bethlehem, BWV 603, the Holy Week Christ lag in Todesbanden, BWV 625, and the Easter Christ ist erstanden, BWV 627, as well as the moving Durch Adam’s Fall ist ganz verderbt, BWV 637, and the familiar Wachet auf, ruft uns die Stimme, BWV 645, and Nun danket alle Gott, BWV 657.
