Torres, José de - Complete Organ Music - Forst, Bruno (orgel)

Lägg till önskelista + 119 kr - Utgången

Joseph de Torres was something of a multifaceted character, for not only was he appointed organist of the Spanish Royal Chapel, later becoming its maestro di capilla in 1718, but he was also responsible for founding a publishing house - where, exercising a virtual monopoly, he promoted many of the most important theoretical works of the time, in addition to the publishing of scores and incidental music.

De Torres was first and foremost, however, a composer of the upmost talent, and the fact that he achieved renown beyond the borders of his native Spain, receiving commissions from as far afield as Latin America (something highly unusual for the time), is a testament to the fine quality of his music. As for his small collection of organ works, they reflect the best of Spanish Baroque keyboard writing, especially that of the Daroca school (a tradition passed on directly to Torres by his teachers). Now preserved in manuscripts housed in Portugal and Mexico, they have been transcribed by the artist on this recording, Bruno Forst, who, as a devotee of the Iberian organ, has dedicated himself to studying tablature and to building up as accurate a picture as possible of 16th- to 18th-century keyboard performance practice - from a player's rather than a scholar's perspective. The pieces, which include a fugue, batalla as well as canción, make the most of the technical innovations introduced by the greatest Iberian organ-builders during the last decades of the 17th century and commonplace by the beginning of the 18th - including the frequent use of light-and-shade echo effects, splendidly illustrated by Forst in this recording.
