Produktbeskrivelse

Meeting of the Minds
Bach and Händel in arrangements by Reger, Max, Alexandre Guilmant, and Sigfrid Karg-Elert: these are the top names that we have brought together for you on this fascinating CD meeting of baroque and romantic musical minds. The orchestral splendor of the romantic organ was what moved composers to arrange their favorite works of earlier times for the majestic sound of this king of instruments. The genius of Bach and Händel was to radiate in the new light of contemporary organ design, and cathedrals would resound with baroque grandeur.

Romantic Reconstruction
No other German organ builder of the times built instruments measuring up to the magnificence of those by Wilhelm Sauer. The organ that he constructed for the Bremen Cathedral in 1893/94 would go on to accommodate four manuals and a total of ninety-eight stops. A recent lavish reconstruction project restored it to its original state.

True Renown
Baumgratz, Wolfgang is one of Germany's most renowned organists. After his studies in Freiburg and Amsterdam and his busy international concert career, he was offered one of Germany's most prestigious organist posts in 1979, that of cathedral organist in Bremen. In this post he has had the opportunity to demonstrate his talent on the cathedral's three famous organs. His service there and work as a professor at the Bremen Music Academy have brought him additional fame as an excellent organ interpreter and teacher.
