International organ virtuoso, Thomas Trotter, playing a selection of works by CPE Bach, including four Sonatas, fugues and other pieces.
Wonderfully expressive and little-known music from this son of JS Bach.
A rare recording devoted to eighteenth-century music from this world-renowned performer.
Performed on the beautiful Mitterreither (1773)/Flentrop (1973) organ of Eton College Hall – an organ largely contemporary with the music and the only authentic continental organ of this period in the UK.
“Throughout, Trotter is supple in slow movements, scintillating in fast, and an adroit colourist, finding in Eton's treasure trove of 18th-century pipework an essential and rewarding ally.”
“As an introduction to CPE Bach's organ music this new selection is ideal. The combination of a master player, a unique authentic late-18th-century North German/Dutch-style organ (albeit within two miles of Slough!) and sparklingly attractive music results in a good hour's worth of listening delight”
