Johann Sebastian Bach, Organ Works

Audio-CD, 69:38 min.; 2012, Medien Kontor Hamburg;

The organ in St. Bartholomäus, Wesselburen (North Western Germany) was built in 1741 by Johann Hinrich Klapmeyer, in the tradition of the famous organ builder of the Baroque era, Arp Schnitger. The instrument (2 manuals and independent pedal, 30 stops), a masterpiece of Baroque art and craftsmanship, has been reconstructed by the organ builder Rowan West in 2011. For this J.S. Bach recording the interpreter selected compositions which are inspired by the North German „Fantastic Style“ of Nicolaus Bruhns or Dietrich Buxthude. These great preludes, toccatas, fantaisies and their fugues show the brillant sounding „Plenum“ of the instrument. Contrasting this mighty aspect of the Baroque organ, there are some smaller, quiet pieces of diverse styles to be heard, to do justice to the individual character of the flutes and reeds.

Franz Vollrath Buttstett (1735–1814), Keyboard Sonatas

Audio-CD, 49:51 min.; 2008, Medien Kontor Hamburg; Premiere Recording: Sonatas A Major, E flat Major (Fortepiano), Ständchen, Spinnerlied, Alla Polacca, Allegro, Sonata B flat Major (Clavichord),
Barbara Kraus, Fortepiano and Clavichord

Following the suggestion of the novelist Andreas Nohr, whose attention had by a mere chance been drawn to F.V. Buttstett in the libraries of Franconia (Northern Bavaria), Barbara Kraus began research into existing compositions (autographs, copies and some early prints) in order this nearly forgotten music have the chance of being performed. She published a selection of cantatas and motets as well as all keyboard works. For this recording the interpreter chose a Forte-Piano, a detailed copy of an instrument by J.A Stein (Vienna 1783) and a clavichord, referring to instruments of central germany of the later 18th century.
