With their works, Buxtehude and Bach deeply marked the Baroque world of which they were unquestionable protagonists. They were both strong believers of the Evangelic-Lutheran faith, who thought music was the best way to glorify God. Two famous mottos exalt their intents: ”Non omnibus sed Deo” (Buxtehude) and ”Soli Deo Gloria” (Bach). Our CD is featuring Ivana Vallotti’s performance of Buxtehude’s Toccata in F major (BuxWV 156) which is striking for its bright tonality, exuberant creativity, wonderful contrasts and palpable joy, the Prelude in G minor (BuxWV 149), a sorrowful key, is equally impressive for its theatrical, highly dramatic mood and the Passacaglia in D minor (BuxWV 161) which can be considered the apex of Buxtehude’s art.
 
Further the album is featuring the Passacaglia in C minor (BWV 582), the monumental and sublime work where Bach, in the space of almost three-hundred measures, develops twenty-one variations on an eight-measure ostinato motif. This piece is to be considered a unique work in Baroque organ music, the Toccata and fugue in F major (BWV 540) and the Fantasia and fugue in G minor (BWV 542) where Bach takes a radical step away from the Nordic prelude, separating the prelude from the fugue, reaching that perfect balance between imagination and rigour, formal austerity and poetic intensity that was the constant ideal of Baroque art. The Fantasia in G minor, expression of a most intense stylus phantasticus, is structured in several segments and opposes dramatic recitative to passages in rigorously polyphonic style. The fugue stands out for its brightness: its motif stems from a Flemish popular song that was very well-known by musicians in Northern Germany.
