Dietrich Buxtehude: Complete Organ Works [6-album set]
Dieterich Buxtehude (c. 1637/39-1707) was a Danish-German organist and composer of the Baroque period. His organ works represent a central part of the standard organ repertoire and are frequently performed at recitals and in church services. He composed in a wide variety of vocal and instrumental idioms, and his style strongly infuenced many composers, including Johann Sebastian Bach. Today, Buxtehude is considered one of the most important composers in Germany of the mid-Baroque.
"There's no question that Stella has the proper Buxtehude style, which is to play with irregular meter and with the parts of both hands slightly out-of-synch much of the time, which creates a weird tension[...]." - Fanfare
A master collection of which BBC Music Magazine said “An Italian eager to touch base with his inner Teuton, as [Simone] Stella sets well ordered lucidity above unfettered famboyance".
