II. Marsch: Andante con moto
“Skill is what Christiaan Teeuwsen has in abundance. His is playing of total command and confidence that he uses to the service of the music and its creator rather than to self-aggrandizement. He is rhythmically rock solid, never allowing the music to stagnate, and his registrations, while always interesting and bold, are never gaudy or in bad taste. In the abundant toccata and fantasia passages of the preludes he has an impeccable sense of ebb and flow, thrilling the listener with the fast passage work and reining back in just in time to set loose on another delightful ride. In the fugues, he has an excellent sense of line and voicing, bringing out subjects and countersubjects in bold relief against the accompaniment figures, allowing the voices to flow in and out of one another with elegance and grace. He is capable of a fine lyrical line as well, as is exemplified in quieter verses of the partitas, and in the chorale preludes.
To round off this fine recital, we have excellent program notes, if perhaps too brief by the organist himself, who speaks well for both the composer and his music. This is the kind of project that leaves a listener eagerly anticipating the coming volumes. What a pleasure this recital is! Buy it!”
