Notes & Reviews:
The list of music directors and organists at Hamburg's principal churches reads like a who's who of the organ artistry of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries: Matthias Weckmann, Vincent Lubeck, and Heinrich Scheidemann and then later Georg Philipp Telemann and Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach were active in Hamburg.
Reflecting its business acumen, its valuable organs of Dutch design were not simply replaced but carefully enlarged and adapted to the needs of the seventeenth century.
Martin Rost is an outstanding expert in the field of Northern German organ music. His "house instrument" is the organ in St. Mary's Church in Stralsund, an organ built by Fritzsche's son-in-law Stellwagen in 1659 and thus a masterful continuation of the Hanseatic organ tradition.
