Review by JJ May 30, 2010 (6 of 7 found this review helpful)
Performance:   Sonics:    
Dietrich Buxtehude (1637-1717), whom Jean-Sebastian Bach heard when he was still a young man of about twenty, was a composer of importance. Still, “no score for organ was published in his lifetime,” states Gilles Cantagrel, “and we know his works only through copies from the period done by students or colleagues. They are noted in tablature or transcribed from tablature, and present various gaps; what’s more, not only are the titles and dates mostly missing, even the author’s name is often not there. This gives an idea of the work musicologists have had to do in order to reconstitute a body of work as coherently as possible; it is also what explains the important variations from publication to another.” Choosing two different instruments, the organ of the church St. Nicolaï of Altenbruch and that of the church St. Jacobi of Lündingworth, Masaaki Suzuki proposes a selection of works that includes: the Toccata BuxWV 156, Praeludium Bux WV 153, Ciacona BuxWV 160, Te Deum Laudamus BuxWV 218, Von Gott will ich nicht lassen Bux WV 220 and 221, Praeludium Bux WV 148, Toccata Bux WV 155, Nimm von uns, Herr, Du treuer Gott BuxWV 207, Icht ruf zu Dir, Herr Jesu Christ BuxWV 196 and Magnificat Primi Toni BuxWV 203. Like his recordings of Bach’s Cantatas that are unendingly wonderful, Suzuki here has irresistible verve, with zeal that is undeniably communicative. From beginning to end of this copious program, Suzuki never ceases to move us by his commitment. And the sound recording, which renders the instruments very present, is also a big plus for this must-have SACD.
