Having completed his years-long traversal through the vocal music of Johann Sebastian Bach for Challenge Classics, Ton Koopman picks up the thread with a valuable new series surveying the complete works of Bach's Danish predecessor Dietrich Buxtehude. While Buxtehude's total output for organ has already been surveyed, albeit infrequently, on record, there are still many works falling outside that genre that have never been committed to vinyl or disc, so this is potentially a highly valuable project.

Under the Antoine Marchand (that's Ton Koopman in French, or Anthony Merchant in English) imprint of the Challenge Classics label, Dutch early music veteran Ton Koopman recording the large corpus of surviving works by Dietrich Buxtehude, inspired by the tercentary of the composer's death in 1707. All initial indications are that few other musicians could have done this at all, and probably no one could have done it as well.

Lars Ulrik Mortensen is best known as a harpsichordist active largely in Baroque solo and chamber music repertory. But his career is quite multifaceted: he has regularly conducted both instrumental and operatic works and has taught harpsichord and historic performance practices at the Hochschule fur Musik in Munich. He has often appeared in concert as accompanist to singer Emma Kirkby and has regularly partnered violinist John Holloway and cellist Jaap ter Linden.

A marvelous treatment of Pachelbel's lesser known works with a definitive performance of the all-too famous Canon. Too many interpreters of the Canon use the wrong tempo for this work, too slow and sentimental. This group does not and they have made it possible to listen to this work without gagging. They also do a wonderful job of presenting Buxtehude's chamber music. This composer is too often associated with ponderous Baroque organ music.

In the Telemann mountains, much of the topography remains terra incognita because most of Telemann's music remains an undiscovered country. But whatever future generations of hardy musicologists may uncover, it is unlikely that Telemann's Nouveaux Quatuors en Six Suites published in Paris in 1738 will be displaced as among his output's highest peaks.

In this second volume (double-cd) of the Opera Omnia of Dieterich Buxtehude, Ton Koopman gives us his new reconstruction of Buxtehudes only surviving Abendmusik, this oratorio, also called "Das Jungste Gericht", that survived without attribution as an incomplete set of parts in the Uppsala University Library. As the style is similar to Buxtehudes lost Abendmusiker, this oratorio is almost certainly from his hand.

Say what you will about Ton Koopman's many Bach recordings, you have to admit his few Buxtehude recordings are something special. For some, Koopman's Bach, for all its deep devotion and immense musicality, was still a bit too individualistic, but Koopman's Buxtehude, while matching his Bach for devotion and musicality, was appropriately quirky and eccentric.

Buxtehude the organist expanded his activities as a vocal composer in an unprecedented way. He left a particular mark as a composer of large-scale oratorios («Abendmusiken»). His oratorios have not survived, but the many other vocal compositions that have come down to us represent a substantial body of works. These include in particular larger and shorter chorale settings of various kinds, sacred concertos (i.e., motets with differentiated instrumental accompaniment), arias, and multi-movement structures consisting of concertos, arias, and chorales that were later referred to as cantatas. This album (as did vol.V) presents a mixed selection of works in the above mentioned genres: arias, concertos, and – as a composite of the two – cantatas.

Dieterich Buxtehude’s organ works are his most significant contribution to the history of music. They consist of a comprehensive corpus of just 90 compositions, of which more than half are chorale settings. However, these are mostly shorter than the preludes, toccatas and other freely conceived pieces, so these last represent a more substantial share of his entire output.
