Notes & Reviews:

During the 17th century, Nuremberg was one of the leading music centres in Germany. Organists were the main carriers of musical life here, usually writing vocal and instrumental works alongside Clavierwerke. The activities and production of famous Nuremberg organists were determined by the continuity of a teaching tradition, probably unique in Germany, that spanned five generations. Early Music by Staden, Pachelbel, Hassler, Kindermann and others, including some Premiere Recordings!

American Record Guide, March/April 2015
This well-conceived record presents a sampling of keyboard repertoire by musicians active in Nuremberg in the 17th and 18th centuries. Compositions by familiar composers such as Hans Leo Hassler and Johann Pachelbel are balanced with lesser-known figures such as Johann Joachim Agrell, Benedict Schultheiss, and Johann Staden. These works are well suited to the four keyboard instruments chosen: an 18th Century Italian organ and current replicas of a German Baroque regal, clavichord, and harpsichord. So this recording is commendable as an introduction to the timbres and characters of German Baroque keyboard instruments. Waldner's performances as a harpsichordist and clavichordist are engaging and stylish.
