Reviews

'A marvellous way of getting to know the ins and outs of six superb examples of Bach's contrapuntal craft' (Gramophone)

'As played by The King's Consort, these sonatas have a deliciously intimate and conversational quality that is very difficult to achieve at the organ … Both playing and sound are stunning. If you love Bach's instrumental chamber music you must hear this disc. If you are an organist you may never think of these pieces in quite the same way again' (American Record Guide)

'An impressive combination of enterprising arrangements with outstanding musicianship. On all counts this is an outstanding release' (Classic CD)

'Un véritable petit bijou' (Répertoire, France)
The E flat major sonata is the most straightforward and succinct of the set and offers the player difficulties generally overcome with less trouble than certain others. Both the charming figuration of the outer movements and the conventional pathos of the slow movement help to give that coordination of hands and feet that is the accomplished organist’s delight.

from notes by Peter Williams © 1990

Die Sonate in Es-Dur ist das geradlinigste und prägnanteste Werk der Zusammenstellung, dessen Schwierigkeiten für den Interpreten im Allgemeinen leichter zu bewältigen sind als die gewisser anderer Stücke. Sowohl die charmante Figuration der Ecksätze als auch das konventionelle Pathos des langsamen Satzes tragen zu jener manuellen Koordination bei, an der sich erfahrene Organisten besonders erfreuen.
