Leveranstid: Skickas vanligtvis inom 2-5 dagar
During his lifetime, Johann Pachelbel (1653–1706) was best known as an organ composer. He wrote more than two hundred pieces for the instrument, both liturgical and secular, and explored most of the genres that existed at the time. He is considered to be the apex of the 17th century’s south German organ school and generally one of the most important composers of the middle Baroque. His sphere of activity included central and southern Germany (modern Bavaria, Thuringia and Stuttgart), as well as important formative years in Vienna in his early 20s, during which he absorbed the Habsburg Empire’s dominant Italian and south German influences. The southern organ-builders’ emphasis on manual divisions is also apparent in much of Pachelbel’s liturgical organ music, which is relatively simple and written for manuals only. With this 13-disc set covering Pachelbel’s pivotal contributions to the chorale prelude, fugue and variation forms, internationally acclaimed organist Simone Stella adds another milestone to his already prolific discography of baroque keyboard music surveys on Brilliant Classics (Dieterich Buxtehude, BC94312 4CD & BC94422 6CD: Georg Bo¨hm, BC94612 4CD; Johann Adam Reincken, BC94606 3CD; Johann Gottfried Walther, BC94730 12CD; Johann Jakob Froberger, BC94740 16CD). Johann Pachelbel (1653-1706) was one of the most important organist/composers of the South German Organ School in the 17th century. A child prodigy he soon became a professional organist and he held important posts at several German courts before finally settling in Nuremberg, where he was organist and sought-after teacher. Pachelbel’s music enjoyed enormous popularity during his lifetime. His style was influenced by Froberger and Kerll, as well as by Italian composers Frescobaldi and Carissimi. He employed a lucid, uncomplicated contrapuntal style that emphasized melodic and harmonic clarity over virtuosity and dense complexity. His keyboard works include Toccatas, Fugues, Fantasias, Chaconnes, Preludes and Chorale Preludes and the Hexachordum Apollinis, a series of 6 Arias and Variations. Simone Stella is one of the foremost keyboard players of today. He has a substantial discography to his name, including the complete keyboard works by Buxtehude, Walther, Froberger, Reincken and Böhm, a colossal achievement! His playing is fed by a deep understanding of the style and technique: free, joyous and always full of character and affect. The extensive liner notes in the booklet are written by the artist.
