After Buxtehude, Tunder, Reinken, Bruhns, Scheidemann and Böhm, Bernard Foccroulle pursues his exploration of the repertoire of the organists of northern Germany before Bach with the works of Matthias Weckman.

Trained in the entourage of Schütz, and having perfect mastery of the profession of Sweelinck’s heirs and all aspects of the Italian style, this composer compels recognition as the keystone in the generation preceding Buxtehude’s. The repertoire tackles the free forms of the new stylus fantasticus but also proposes different forms of pieces inspired by chorale tunes, including two monumental fantasias in several sections.

Bernard Foccroulle made this recording on three historic organs: in Hollern, Stade and, primarily, on the recently restored organ of the Katharinen Kirche in Hamburg. This constitutes an event that will enchant enthusiasts!
