- Gerd Zacher (Organ)
Notes & Reviews:
Gerd Zacher returns with this unique work by this German composer. Born in Hamburg, Mattheson began his activities as an organist and opera singer at an early age. In 1703 he befriended Handel in whose operas, 'Almira' and 'Nero,' he sang the leading roles. Handel showed him a few "special tricks of counterpoint" while Mattheson informed Handel about "dramatic style." 'The Harmonious Language of the Fingers,' consisting of 12 fugues with up to three subjects and dedicated to Handel, was published in 1735 in Hamburg.
