Complete Harpsichord and Organ Music
Vincent Lübeck lived from 1654 till 1740. He is one of the most important
composers of the North-German Organ School, the organist of the Nikolai Church
in Hamburg, one of the most important churches, housing an impressive Arp Schnitger
This set contains Lübeck’s complete works for harpsichord and organ. The pieces for organ are the most important of his works. Influenced by Dieterich Buxtehude and Johann Adam Reincken, Lübeck composed works that were both technically and artistically elaborate with frequent two-pedal virtuosic passages, five voices and other compositional elements rarely used by most of his contemporaries. This is particularly the case in his polyphonic writing, in the fugue passages and in the double fugues which demands a high level of virtuosity of the organist.
Manuel Tomadin, one of Italy’s foremost organists, plays the magnificent Van Hagerbeer Schnitger organ of the Grote Kerk of Alkmaar, one of the most famous instruments in the world.
The booklet contains excellent liner notes written by the artist, as well as the specifications of the instruments.
