About

When J S 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.

Played on the Volckland organ of Cruciskirche, Germany.
