Johann Sebastian Bach - Toccaten & Suiten am Clavichord vol. 2
J.S.Bach's muse is back again
For the first time ever Organroxx recorded a clavichord build by Joris Potvlieghe according to the descriptions of Jacob Adlung in his Musica Mechanica Organoedi from 1726. Adlung was himself a pupil of Johann Nicolaus Bach, an organist & builder of keyboard instruments and second cousin of Johann Sebastian Bach. Johann Nicolaus lived only 20 kilometers from Weimar where Johann Sebastian and Johann Gottfried Walther were active.
We do know that J.S.Bach loved to play the clavichord, he used it also for teaching and to try out his compositions. Peter Waldner plays on this fantastic instrument virtuoso compositions from J.S.Bach.
The money we'll raise will go to the second recording with this fabulous instrumment.
Peter Waldner is active as professional harpsichordist, organist, clavichordist, fortepiano-player, conductor, musicologist, specialist for historical keyboard instruments and ancient music.
Born in Mals im Vinschgau (South Tyrol), he could with the help of a grant from the Tyrolean government, specialise in the interpretation of Early Music on historical keyboard instruments and he could study with Gustav Leonhardt, Hans van Nieuwkoop and Kees van Houten in Holland, William Christie in Paris and Jean-Claude Zehnder at the ‘Schola Cantorum’ in Basle. Numerous concerts in almost all European countries as well as many radio recordings and CDs.
