About the Performance and Recording
Anton Heiller (1923-1979) was one of the great organists of his time. He was also renowned as a keyboard improviser in the tradition of Bach himself, as evidenced in many of the recordings he made for Vanguard Classics.
Born in Vienna, he studied composition and keyboard performance at the Vienna Conservatory and in 1945 became a professor of organ at the Vienna Academy in the department of
church music. Continuing to concretize, his brilliant technique and
interpretive artistry, on both the organ and the harpsichord, established him as one of the foremost performers and recording artists of the era. As a composer, his work won increasing admiration in European circles and was performed in Venice, Paris, and London, as well as at various festivals.
Heiller had a unique conception of the sound he wanted to hear for any specific repertoire, and he chose the instrument that would best bring that conception to life. For the performance on this recording, he selected the organ at the St. Mary Church in Helsingborg in Sweden.
