Notes & Reviews:
Johann Jakob Froberger (1616-1667) was one of the most famous and influential composers of the early Baroque. Born in Stuttgart he travelled in Europe extensively, thus absorbing all national styles, and influencing other composers with his own musical inventions. Although Froberger wrote a large number of vocal works he is mainly known for his keyboard works, for both organ and harpsichord. He is the "inventor" of the Baroque Suite, a number of varied dances, with the basis of Allemande, Courante, Sarabande and Gigue. His keyboard style is free, fanciful and highly expressive, sometimes describing extra-musical features or events, thus creating the first "program music" in history. With this magnificent Opus Italian keyboardist Simone Stella adds another gem to his series of recordings of Pre-Bachian keyboard composers, his recordings of works by Bohm, Buxtehude, Reincken and Walther have met with great critical acclaim in the international press.
