Bach's virtuoso skill as an organist was world renowned, and he was particularly celebrated for his use of registration. Spanning 2 CDs, this compilation is dedicated to some of his best-known Preludes and Fugues, and also features the celebrated Sch�bler Chorales. While the former works betray the composer's unparalleled ability to give distinctive qualities to each of the fugal voices, the latter collection - compiled by the publisher Johann Georg Sch�bler in 1748 - is largely made up of chorales based on melodies from Bach's cantatas, and was intended for concert performance. The celebrated Fantasia and Fugue in C minor BWV357 and Toccata and Fugue in D minor BWV538, which Bach himself is said to have held in high esteem, complete the line-up. One of Europe's leading organists, Matteo Messori has recorded widely for Brilliant Classics. Here he combines energy with artistic flair to deliver consummate readings of these engaging works: a must-buy for the keyboard and Baroque connoisseur. Recorded in June 2011. Organs: Johannes Creutzburg (1735), St. Cyriakus church of Duderstadt; Eilert K�hler (1738), Kreuzkirche of Suhl. Unique historical organs located in Germany, which have a strong link with the great composer himself, organs which Bach might have known, and whose builders he greatly respected. Matteo Messori is one of the leading Baroque organists of Europe; his previous recordings for Brilliant Classics (Kunst der Fuge, and Clavier�bung, have been awarded 5 star reviews in international classical magazines.
