Performer Composers

Notes & Reviews:

The present recording of North German organ works of father and son Hieronymus (1560-1629) and Jacob Praetorius, Jr. (1586-1651) leads listeners to the threshold of the Renaissance and the early Baroque period. Joseph Kelemen (b. 1957) dedicates himself to historical performance practice on the organ. Today he is considered an authority on German organ music of the 17th c. as well as the music of Johann Sebastian Bach. Mr. Kelemen is heard here on the Scherer Organ in Tangermu¨nde, built 1570-80, and restored 1983-94.

American Record Guide, March/April 2015
For his series Kelemen performs on suitable historic instruments. The here is the three-manual 1624 Scherer at St Stephen's Church, Tangermnnde. The most recent restoration was carried out between 1983 and 1994 by Alexander Schuke of Potsdam. The sound of the full organ is quite pungent, and the quarter-comma meantone tuning contributes to the pungency. At the same time, there are warm and luscious quiet registers and stately reeds. It is a fine sound for this music and beautifully recorded. Over the years I have reviewed several other volumes in both the North German and South German series containing works by Georg Muffat (Oehms 604; July/Aug 2006), Nicolaus Bruhns (Oehms 641; March/April 2010), Heinrich Scheidemann (Oehms 682; March/April 2012), and Sweelinck (Oehms 680; July/Aug 2013). I have been consistently impressed with Kelemen's performances. He has a scholar's knowledge of this repertory.
