DOR-90152

THE ORGAN WORKS OF
J.S. BACH
VOLUME 5.

JEAN GUILLOU, ORGAN
Recorded at the Kleuker-Steinmeyer organ
of the Tonhalle, Zürich.

DOR-90152 Cover - 17775 Bytes Prelude and Fugue in C Major, BWV 547
A sunny, inventive and mature work that justly enjoys wide popularity, the so-called "Leipzig" Prelude and Fugue in C Major, BWV 547, was most likely written before Bach settled in that city.   Accordimg to George Stauffer, the composition was more likely a product of the composer's years as Court Capellmeister in Cöthen, between 1717and 1723.   He bases his contention on stylistic evidence.
Prelude and Fugue in E Major, BWV 566
As early as the 1870s this work was recognized as an homage to Buxtehude, under whose personal guidance Bach may well have written it while visiting Lubeck in 1706.
