BUXTEHUDE: Harpsichord Music, Vol. 1

Having been born half a century after Heinrich Schütz, the ‘father of German musicians’, and a little less than half a century before J. S. Bach, Dietrich Buxtehude was a living link between the founder of Protestant Baroque music and its greatest master. While Buxtehude’s organ music is comparatively well known, his harpsichord music has not yet found the reputation it deserves. This first volume of the series covers the full range of Buxtehude’s compositional styles for the keyboard, from the brilliant and virtuosic opening Toccata in G major, to the more subtle and melodic Suites in C major and D minor in the French style, and finishing with the flamboyant and highly virtuosic Canzonetta in A minor.
