Dietrich Buxtehude (1637-1707)

Buxtehude’s organ music is not only a fascinating precursor of his great admirer J.S. Bach but a body of work full of energy and beauty in its own right, a pinnacle of the early-Baroque Protestant aesthetic. Strict and florid counterpoint, lying at the centre of Bach’s style, is less important here; rather we can hear vibrant and directly illustrative responses to the texts which lie behind the chorales and instrumental versions of canticles such as the Magnificat and Te Deum. The toccatas and fugues are generally shorter and punchier than the mature Bach’s examples, and overall solemnity is generally eschewed in favour of exuberant virtuosity.

These characteristics fit well the mastery of Simone Stella, whose 3-disc set of Buxtehude’s harpsichord music has already proved him a doughty advocate of the composer. As BBC Music Magazine remarked, “here we have an Italian eager to touch base with his inner Teuton, as Stella sets well-ordered lucidity above unfettered flamboyance.

The recording, a perfect-stereo one, with totally absence of any mastering effects nor equalisation, has obtained a lot of prizes around the world's music magazines including the 5 "diapason" mark.

Recorded at: Chiesa di Sant'Antonio Abate, Padova, 2011
Engineer: Alessandro Simonetto
