Perhaps the most important composer of organ music before Bach, Dietrich Buxtehude (c. 1637-1707) was one of the most influential musicians in northern Europe. His brilliance as a performer is said to have inspired the young Johann Sebastian Bach to walk 200 miles from Arnstadt to L beck to hear his performances.
The most important of Buxtehude's instrumental compositions were for organ, and this volume presents virtually all of the composer's organ works -- 78 toccatas, preludes, chorale variations, chorale fantasias, chorale preludes, fugues, canzonettas, chaconnes, and other works -- reprinted directly from the definitive Breitkopf & H rtel edition by Philipp Spitta and Max Seiffert.
Professional and amateur organists, musicians, and music lovers will welcome the opportunity to study and perform these masterful compositions -- conveniently reprinted in this attractive, inexpensive, and authoritative edition.
