Continuing its work with the rising stars of the early music world, CORO is delighted to be releasing its second recording with one of The Sixteen Orchestra’s principal members - Robert Quinney. 
 
This new album, which was recorded at Trinity College, Cambridge, on the beautiful Metzler Organ, features a number of virtuosic works from Bach’s early years including one of the most famous pieces of organ music in the repertory - the Toccata and Fugue in D minor (BWV 565). The disc also includes the Toccata and Fugue in F (BWV 540) and the Passacaglia (BWV 582) - one of Bach’s most well-known and important organ works. Robert Schumann described the variations of Passacaglia as ’intertwined so ingeniously that one can never cease to be amazed.’

"This is quite brilliant organ playing, with the most thrilling account of the D minor Toccata and Fugue I have ever heard... splendidly recorded and very intelligently sequenced. I look forward to more issues in this series with some impatience."

Robert Matthew-Walker - International Record Review - December 2013


 "Several of Bach’s gretest hits for the organ are heard here on an ideal instrument (Trinity College Cambridge) in sober performances from Robert Quinney.  ****

John Allison - BBC Music magazine (Brief Notes section) - Christmas 2013


"... Quinney plays with clean articulation and a fine sense of the detailed phrasing and projection of the musical line..."

Andrew Benson-Wilson - Early Music Review - August 2013


"For the second volume of his Bach project, Quinney has chosen to play the 1976 Metzler instrument at Trinity College, Cambridge. It is an organ of beautifully defined sonorities, well suited to the music ... Quinney brings a remarkable freshness thanks to his flamboyant decorations. In the C minor Passacaglia and Fugue, meticulosly registered, his articulation is exquisitlely controlled. The vast Toccata and Fugue in F is done with similar insight, the contrast of free exuberance and structural formality telling."

Stephen Pettitt - The Sunday Times - 4 August 2013
