Performer Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Some stylistic features and musical idiosyncrasies persist from Bach's early works to his late compositions, others disappear, and new characteristics are integrated along the way. With their individual characters, the Marktkirche's three organs enable us to comprehend Bach's diverse and multi-faceted oeuvre, and encounter the composer anew.

American Record Guide, November/December 2013
As heard here each of the organs has a very agreeable sound, and the opportunity to compare their characteristics is welcome. Smidt has been organist of the Hanover Market Church since 1996, so he supervised the building of the two modern instruments heard on this recording. He also teaches at the Hochschule for Music and Theater in Hanover. His playing here is solid and respectable.
