Johann Sebastian Bach Prelude and Fugue in G major BWV 541
Johann Sebastian Bach trans. Sigfrid Karg-Elert Air from Orchestral Suite in D major BWV 1068
Franz Liszt Fantasia and Fugue on BACH
Following a lapse in contributions to the organ repertory during the latter part of the eighteenth century, the complexion of the nineteenth century looked altogether different and played host to a revival of interest in the instrument. Often referred to as the ‘Bach revival’, the movement also saw a fresh enthusiasm for Bach’s work by musicians and composers. This programme presents works by some key players in the development of the organ and its music in Germany, not least, of course, Bach himself.
