The album by Kei Koito features famous and well known baroque and pre-baroque music by composers such as Buxtehude, Praetorius, Scheidt, Scheidemann, and others The tracklisting is based on alteration: after an organ piece, the corresponding choral work is sung by the renowned Italian ensemble Il Canto Di Orfeo. The program of this album has been recorded in the famous “Stephanskirche” in Tangermünde, Germany. The Baroque organ of 1624 by Hans Scherer the Younger and his brother Fritz Scherer is especially noteworthy. Its design, consisting of a main organ, a Rückpositiv and bass pipes, is a clear example of the Scherers' construction technique known as the "Hamburg Prospekt". In 1994 it was restored. The organ, which had been altered several times in its history, was restored to its original acoustic pattern, which was possible as 50% of the original pipes were still in place. The instrument is tuned in a mid-tone. The instrument is famous among organ player all.

Dietrich Buxtehude was not only the greatest organ virtuoso of his time and a celebrated composer of both sacred and secular music; he was also a highly enterprising and innovative artist with a unique ability to form networks around himself. This CD, conceived by Theatre of Voices and Paul Hillier, gives a rare insight into the circle around Buxtehude – a musical circle of time, place, friendships, teacher-pupil relationships and even family ties; a network of excellent composers from northern German musician families, all of whom worked in or migrated to Scandinavia in the course of the 1600s.

This recording of organ music performed by Gayle h. Martin highlights the organ music of Johann Sebastian Bach and Dietrich Buxtehude. The repertoire exposes the two composers' shared musical influences and unique compositional style. Because the two composers spent the majority of their lives playing, directing, and composing church music, organ composition and performance were at the heart of both of their careers. The Praeludia (also called toccatas) of Buxtehude and the preludes and fugues of Bach belong to instrumental genres not based on a tune with text.

Years before J.S. Bach paved the way toward what is now largely considered the height of the German Baroque, Dietrich Buxtehude was hard at work in northern Germany on his own individual union of the Italian and French Baroque styles. His Op. 1 is a sumptuous, dynamic set of seven sonatas scored for violin, gamba, and continuo (played here by cello and harpsichord). Unlike composers both before and after him, Buxtehude was far from formulaic when it came to the organization of his sonatas, each one having its own unique combination and sequence of movements.

This set includes two of the rarest and hardest to find of all recordings: the 1958-59 version of the Bach Cello Suites by Janos Starker – the one everyone says his later recordings cannot match – and the extremely beautiful performance of Bach's unaccompanied violin sonatas and partitas – the one that Japanese collectors pay 3-digit dollar prices for – in outstanding EMI Digital Re-Masterings.

GRAMOPHONE AWARD WINNER 2015 - BAROQUE INSTRUMENTAL RECORDING OF THE YEAR. This recording is the first time that the five-stringed Amati has been used to record the 6th suite and it is the only original five-string cello in existence in the UK and unique in being the only one by this maker. The Cello Suites are performed on two gut-string cellos Suite Nos. 1-5 on a Francesco Ruggieri from 1660 and Suite No. 6 the five-stringed Cremona cello by A. & H. Amati from c.1600, both tuned to Baroque pitch. Bachs cello suites are renowned as the pinnacle of the instruments repertoire and are performed here in period performances by the internationally acclaimed cellist, David Watkin. David Watkin has been performing Bachs Cello Suites in concert for 35 years, and Bachs unaccompanied cello repertoire has taken him all over Europe, from the Palace of Frederick the Great at Potsdam to the Prague Spring Festival, and, as part of Sir John Eliot Gardiner's Bach Cantata Pilgrimage, included performances sitting by the font in which Bach was baptised.

Denmark composer and organist Dietreich Buxtehude (1637-1707) was a man of broad culture (his hometown Latin school was one of the most prestigious of his times and he came from an highly educated family). His astonishing musical style is mixing bravery and consistency in an alternation between sharp architectures and oasis of peacefulness. Buxtehude’s music is a clear portrait of his times, connecting Sweelinck’s Dutch style with Weckmann’s Italian taste.

“[These suites] have rarely been recorded or promoted by harpsichordists during the most recent revival of interest in ‘early music.’” I realize that Richard Egarr is entitled to his own opinions—his liner notes on an earlier release, for example, likened the humor in Purcell’s harpsichord music to that of the wonderful old 1950s BBC comedy The Goon Show —but he’s not entitled to his own facts. Christopher Brodersen pointed out in a 2011 review of these works featuring Laurence Cummings ( Fanfare 34:5) that ArkivMusic listed nine complete sets played on the harpsichord, with several others on the piano. I find some of the suites have considerably more recordings than that, in 2014: 26 for the Suite in A Major, 28 for the Suite in D Minor, 25 for the Suite in E Minor, 47 for the Suite in E Major. If such numbers reflect rare recordings, I have to wonder what Egarr would consider a moderate number, let alone a frequent one.

Milieu du XVIIIe siècle. Venise n'est plus une grande puissance mondiale, et le Rialto a perdu sa suprématie de centre du commerce maritime. La ville cherche surtout à rester neutre dans les conflits de succession qui opposent la France, l'Espagne et l'Autriche. Mais les Vénitiens n'en ont cure et, masqués, s'adonnent à toutes les débauches. Une série de meurtres va secouer la noblesse, et les personnages les plus en vue vont devoir faire la preuve de leur innocence. L'assassin procède toujours de la même façon : il lacère ses victimes – toutes jeunes et belles – et inscrit sur le mur le nom de la partie du corps laissée intacte.
