Pfarrkirche St Michael, Kaisten, Switzerland
Produced by Paul Spicer
Engineered by Paul Niederberger
Release date: July 1999

'This boldly presented recital … holds the listener from beginning to end' (The Penguin Guide to Compact Discs)

'Herrick's technical mastery is stunningly apparent' (Contemporary Review)
Although generally included among the harpsichord works, the widely-spaced chordal conclusion of the Fugue in C, BWV946, suggests the use of the organ pedal. It is based on a trio-sonata movement by Albinoni.

from notes by Stephen Westrop © 1999

Bien que généralement comptée au nombre des œuvres pour clavecin, la Fugue en ut majeur, BWV946 semble, de par sa conclusion en accords très larges, suggérant lusage de la pédale, plutôt destinée à l’orgue. Elle repose sur un mouvement de sonate en trio d’Albinoni.

Français: Hypérion

Auch wenn es im allgemeinen zu den Cembalowerken gezählt wird, legt der geräumige akkordische Schluß der Fuge in C-Dur BWV 946 den Gebrauch des Orgelpedals nahe. Das Stück geht auf einen Triosonatensatz von Albinoni zurück.
