Though he came from the Netherlands, Johann Adam Reincken spent his adult life working in Hamburg. Along with Dieterich Buxtehude, he was regarded as the leading authority in organ playing and organ building in the last decades of the 17th century. Though he came from the Netherlands, Johann Adam Reincken spent his adult life working in Hamburg. Along with Dieterich Buxtehude, he was regarded as the leading authority in organ playing and organ building in the last decades of the 17th century. But unlike his friend Buxtehude, next to whom he was buried in Lubeck, Reincken preferred improvisation to written composition, and the harpsichord to the organ. The result: only very few organ works by Reincken have been transmitted.

At the center of the edition by Pieter Dirksen - an expert in 17th-century music for keyboard instruments, who has recently become noted for his work on the Sweelinck Edition (EB 8741-44) - are Reincken's two lengthy chorale fantasies, as was to be expected. The volume also contains chorale-free pieces: next to the well-known Toccata in G major and the Fugue in G minor, there are three further toccatas for which stylistic and source-critical arguments make a case for Reincken's authorship. The extensive preface details the most recent scholarly findings on Reincken's biography and works, as well as on important questions of interpretation. Mit dieser Ausgabe wird ein Werk wieder zuganglich das gleichermassen fur Vortrags- wie fur Unterrichtszwecke geeignet ist das zudem auch als Weihnachtsmusik ganz ohne die hier so oft anzutreffende peinliche Sentimentalitat gelten kann und schliesslich ein besonders hubsches und originelles Zeugnis der Rezeption E. Th. A. Hoffmanns in der Musik darstellt. Die Sonate g-moll op. 42 fur Flote und Klavier erschien 1876 als Erstdruck bei Breitkopf & Hartel. The Sonata in G minor op. 42 for flute and piano was originally published by Breitkopf & Hartel in 1876.

    Excellent copy. Sturdy pages. Well written and clearly marked pages. And, given that Reincken was a friend of Dietrich Buxtehude’s it should go without saying that the former composer is almost as good as the latter. In fact, the first piece in this book, “An Wasserflüssen Babylon” was...

    copied by hand by none other than J.S. Bach. I highly recommend this collection of Reincken’s music.
