Notes & Reviews:

The key of C minor was described in the Baroque era as exceptionally pleasant, gentle, and expressing both love and sadness. It even had moments of deep lament. It is perfectly outlined by the system of temperament of 1732, which was used in the organ built by Andreas Hildebrandt in Paslek, newly restored (2010-2013) and featured in this recording. Ms. Wiselka-Cieslar is Dean of Piano, Organ, Harpsichord and Period Instruments at the Academy of Music in Lódz. Her honours include a distinction of Meritorious Culture Activist (2001), the Golden Cross of Merit (2005), and the Knight's Cross of the Order of Rebirth of Poland.
