Notes & Reviews:

Johann Pachelbel was one of the best organists of his time. He was second to none when it came to the creative blending of the Southern German/Italian and Central German styles. Franz Raml presents an up-to date compositional overview featuring organ toccatas, chorale arrangements, and suites, and St. Peter's Church in Freiberg with its famous Silbermann organ and a harpsichord by Tucher supply the recording's brilliant sound color. Johann Pachelbel received his initial training in music in his hometown of Nuremberg prior to studying with Johann Caspar Kerll in Vienna and assuming the post of assistant organist at St. Stephen's Cathedral.

"Born in Nuremberg in 1653, Johann Pachelbel was one of the most famous organists of his time. He received his initial training in his hometown prior to studying with Johann Caspar Kerll in Vienna. During his career he assumed many important posts, such as that of assistant organist at St Stephen's, and his fine reputation saw him acquiring pivotal appointments at Eisenach, Stuttgart and Gotha. He served at St Sebald's Church in Nuremberg until his death in 1706.

Pachelbel's compositions were shaped by his friendship with the Bachs and influences from Buxtehude as well as by the works of Froberger. The Fantasia in G begins with the identical chord series as Froberger's Toccata VI, and the three-part Ricercare in C may somehow also be regarded as a homage to this inspired model. The Harpsichord Suite in F also owes its language to the Froberger tradition, while the famous and magnificently dimensioned Prelude in D and the Magnificat settings are marvelous creations in their own right.

Franz Raml, who is a powerful advocate of this music, performs spellbindingly both on the Silbermann Organ in Freiburg and the Bernhard von Tucher Harpsichord, and his beautifully shaped organ registrations and sure sense of tempo allow the music to come to life with balmy freshness. Sound, notes and presentation are in the best MD&G tradition. This is a sumptuous second volume that augurs most splendidly for the rest of the series. "-classical.net
