Six years later, Peter Koffler colorfully concludes the Bach cycle on the Rieger organ in the Jesuit church in Munich.
Six years later, the grand project was completed: the organist Peter Koffler recorded all of Johann Sebastian Bach's organ works on the large Rieger organ in the Jesuit Church of St. Michael in Munich with its 75 stations. The third and final part of this edition includes, among others, excerpts from the Chorales Leipzig and Orgelbüchlein, numerous preludes and fugues (as glorious as the finale BWV 532), and an arrangement of Vivaldi's concerto and the Second Trio Sonata. The sound of the organ, documented here in the modern “AURO” format, is of course removed from the baroque possibilities of the time, but that is precisely what appeals to Koffler, who notes Bach's desire for different timbres. Accordingly, its rhythms are chosen with great care. He knows the organ, he knows Bach. He knows what goes together and how. Thus we hear Bach's varied, colorful and finely detailed aria.
