Booklet
One of the world's most respected interpreters of J.S. Bach's music, Simon Preston recorded the complete organ works for Deutsche Grammophon between 1987 and 2000 on organs located in England, Germany, Denmark, and Norway. This 14-disc box set in the affordable Collectors Edition series brings together the trio sonatas, the preludes and fugues, the concertos, the orgelbüchlein, the chorales, and the Clavier-Übung, Part III, and also includes the toccatas, fantasias, partitas, and other pieces that appeared on separate releases. Preston's playing is lucid, alert, and incisive, and his choices of stops produce clear tones that make the counterpoint utterly transparent. If one listens to several discs in a row, Preston's consistently bright sonorities and mostly brisk tempos may seem a little predictable, but any perceived lack of variety is certainly compensated by his skill and thorough mastery of this massive body of work. These recordings present the organs in nearly ideal conditions, with superb sound quality in moderately resonant spaces and without the usual blemishes associated with church recordings, such as the noises of the instruments' mechanisms or random background distractions. Because the discs were printed with minimal content information, the booklet must be consulted for identifying particular works and their track listings. Included in the booklet is an essay on Bach's organ music, as well as a helpful alphabetical list of the works with their BWV numbers and the corresponding CDs. © TiVo

Booklet
In the autumn of 1929, a music student at Harvard discovered the harpsichord for the first time. The instrument was gifted to the university by Arnold Dolmetsch, a harpsichord maker who worked for Boston piano makers Chickering, pioneers of the movement promoting ancient instruments in the second half of the 20th century. Kirkpatrick gained access to the instrument and, after much experimentation, gave his first public harpsichord recital in May of 1930 at Harvard Music Club.Thus began a career that spanned half a century and gained Kirkpatrick international renown as a musicologist, auteur, editor, professor and, above all, a virtuoso and musical philosopher. Time undeniably changes perspectives, and the half-century that separated these two recordings are just as important as the generation gap between Landowska and Kirkpatrick. This is just another reason to re-evaluate Ralph Kirkpatrick's recordings of Bach, and not just in his role as a transitional figure who paved the path between the Landowska school and the revolution of Leonhardt and Harnoncourt. Kirkpatrick interpreted these works with authority, integrity and an indisputable loyalty.
