Notes & Reviews:

John Adam Reincken was a celebrity. When Johann Sebastian Bach was a sixteenyear- old secondary school pupil, he made his way on foot from Lüneburg to Hamburg to hear in person this undisputed master of improvisational artistry. What the young Bach heard must have made a profound impression on him. In his toccatas Bach closely follows his model and even quotes motivic material from Reincken's works. Sonja Kemnitzer's rendering of harpsichord compositions by Reincken is a revelatory listening experience immediately conveying a lot of this fascination.

Reincken's toccatas in particular offer a vivid impression of his improvisational genius. The Toccata in A was for a time this work was ascribed to Bach - which certainly would not have bothered Reincken since in the young Bach he saw an opportunity for the survival of traditional artistry.

Sonja Kemnitzer's versatile playing means that there is never a dull moment and knowledgably and lovingly presents the affections going along with each and every variation!

The extremely vivid tonal depiction of the harpsichord on this high-resolution Super Audio CD does its part to transport the imaginative listener back to the time of this music's composition.
