Dutch Organ Recitals

Johannes Riponensis

Recommended Posts

During lockdown I have found delight and solace in the beautiful online recitals given by Dutch organist, Sietze de Vries, as here, for example, at the Martinikerk, Groningen, one of the very finest organs in Holland. Intelligent, lively, expressive playing and consummate musicianship throughout. Take the Buxtehude 'Komm, heiliger Geist' at 13.57, played in novel fashion at 4 ft pitch and the transcription of the Harpsichord Concerto BWV 1054, which follows at 21.50. Just listen to magical phrasing of the pedal line in the Adagio at 30.15, uncannily recreating the sound of cellos and basses in the orchestra. Balm to the soul.
