'The Praeludium in F sharp minor brings the disc to an arresting conclusion. The performance is exhilarating and Herrick judges the pacing to perfect dramatic ends while also having the opportunity to show off his brilliantly agile pedal technique … this recording, along with its two predecessors in the series, is a first-rate addition to the catalogue. On this evidence, Herrick's next release should be eagerly awaited' (International Record Review)

Praeludium in G minor, BuxWV163
composer

Introduction  EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
The Praeludium in G minor, BuxWV163 is unusual in being for manuals only. It begins in the customary free manner, and the first of its fugues is jig-like in character. The lengthy second one, which follows a further free passage, is based on a subject beginning with a rising fifth and repeated notes, and here Buxtehude anticipates the athletic, Italianate writing of J S Bach’s maturity. The third and final fugue, which follows a very lively free passage, is another of Buxtehude’s jigs.
