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. 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.
The works for harpsichord are here performed very accurately and imaginatively by artist Simone Stella, one of the leading Italian experts in the Baroque field.

You can hardly go wrong with Stella's performances which are very good. He uses the harpsichord well and explores its various stops, mostly in a convincing and stylistically appropriate manner. ‐ (05/12/2013) 

Here we have an Italian eager to touch base with his inner Teuton, as Stella sets well-ordered lucidity above unfettered flamboyance. He's an unfailingly intelligent and revealing guide to a body of work that cries out to be better known. ‐ (01/08/2012) 

Simone Stella esibisce un'ottimo virtuosismo. La sua visione interpretativa fresca e spumeggiante, precisa e accurata. ‐ (01/08/2012) 

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. ‐Lynn Ren Bayley (01/07/2012)
