Johann Sebastian Bach was only known to have travelled north. His meetings with the organists and composers Georg B├Âhm (L├╝neburg) and Johann Adam Reinken (Hamburg) must have left a lasting mark on him. When he stayed in L├╝beck to study the organ art of Dietrich Buxtehude, he of course wanted to visit the organs in the town churches as well, and so we can take it for sure that he also got to know the instruments at St. Jakobi. What was it about Northern German music that fascinated Bach? In contrast to his Thuringian home, Hamburg, L├╝beck and many other cities in the north of Germany developed a culture of organ music. In toccatas and preludes, a stylus phantasticus unfolded, and the organ builders Scherer, Stellwagen and Schnitger with their pedal works created the opportunity to lend the bass fundamental it's own splendid sound. Also, in the genre of organ chorales, Franz Tunder and Dietrich Buxtehude from L├╝beck had developed new expansive forms leading to long chorale fantasies - a special source of inspiration for Bach. The release at hand offers a collection of Bach's organ works with influences from Northern Germany. Arvid Gast plays both historical organs at St. Jakobi L├╝beck: the three-manual Stellwagen Organ built in 1637 and the four-manual Great Organ where in the current disposition many historical stops from the 16th and 17th centuries are included.
