GERMAN ORGAN MASS
James Johnstone organ
The third instalment of the Clavier-Übung series is part of an ongoing series of Bach's published collections performed at the festival, following The Art of Fugue, the Musical Offering and the six harpsichord partitas. Published in 1739, it is devoted mainly to chorale preludes and is a powerful demonstration of Bach’s skill in composition, replete with Trinitarian symbolism.
James Johnstone will be giving an organ and harpsichord course as part of the Days of Baroque Music Velesovo, taking place from 11 to 14 August.
