James Tibbles (harpsichord)

The decision to record an all-Bach harpsichord disc was an easy one for James Tibbles to make. The seed was sown when New Zealand early keyboard builder Paul Downie was commissioned to build a replica of the ‘Hamburg Zell’ – one of the most lavishly decorated and sumptuous of the extant German harpsichords. This recording of 18th century German harpsichord music, made in New Zealand, is really about a unique collaboration between instrument builder, composer, performer and producer.

“[The Concerto for two harpsichords in C] is by far the best part of this disc. James Tibbles and Jenny Thomas deliver an energetic performance.” MusicWeb International, 9th October 2014

Luca Guglielmi (organ in the Chiesa di San Nicolao, Alice Castello)

In a church in a quiet northern Italian town, Alice Castello, survives a hidden jewel: an organ dating from 1749, perfect for Bach’s organ music.

The latest release on the acclaimed VIVAT label, performed by renowned Italian organist Luca Guglielmi, presents a remarkable programme of some of Bach’s finest keyboard works, performed on the organ in the Chiesa di San Nicolao, Alice Castello.

Guglielmi’s striking Bach programme is compiled from works collected by two eighteenth century scholars, Padre Martini and Friedrich Wilhelm Rust, that would surely have been heard in the famous Abbey of Montecassino, a magnet for musical travellers on ‘The Grand Tour’. Martini and Rust played a major role in the creation of the first collected edition of Bach’s works.

The vivid sound of the unique surviving eighteenth century Italian organ in San Nicolao, Alice Castello, and the equally stunning acoustic of the church, is brilliantly captured in this new VIVAT release.

Extensive presentation includes 44 page booklet with authoritative liner note in four languages (English, Italian, French & German), together with illustrations and session photographs, as well as comprehensive details of this unique eighteenth century organ.

“This is no ordinary greatest hits disc of Bach’s organ music. The organ used here is a fascinatingly sweet-toned baroque instrument by Michele Ramasco of 1749 (added to by Bruna in 1802 and in remarkable condition).” The Observer, 17th May 2015 ***

“Acoustically and tonally the San Nicolao organ possesses a lovely bloom and a dynamic spectrum that suits this music ideally. Moreover, Guglielmi is a dexterous and sensitive exponent, as compelling in the quieter, more reflective realms of the repertoire as he is in those of dramatic flourish.” The Telegraph, 31st May 2015 ****

“A true recognition of Bach’s genius took some time, but these works were circulating shortly after his death and are here wonderfully played on an organ of the era.” Gramophone Magazine, August 2015

“Gugliemi's disc gives a lively snapshot of what at least might have been heard; and, thanks to an instrument built in the year before Bach's death…how it must have sounded too…thoughtfully programmed, Gugliemi's Italian perspective intrigues.” BBC Music Magazine, September 2015

Kei Koito (Volckland organ of Cruciskirche, Germany)

When Bach played the organ in church services and recitals, he generally improvised instead of performing existing pieces. It is a sad thought, that probably 90% of the music he played on the organ is lost to us forever – extemporaneous pieces that disappeared with the fading strains of the performances. But fortunately Bach wrote out model compositions for his students and contemporaries, and it is from these preserved treasures that the distinguished organist Kei Koito draws for the present recording, which provides a rich sampling of both free works (that is, works not based on a pre-existing melody) and chorale settings.
