HASH(0x9db06bb8) out of 5 stars Award-Winning Performances, and Deservedly So May 7 2005
By J Scott Morrison - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Although Dieterich Buxtehude (c. 1637-1707) spent most of his life in Lübeck, Germany, the Danes have always been proud to claim him as one of their own because he spent his formative years in Denmark. The Danish record label, da capo, originally published these performances of his Sonatas, Op. 1, for violin, viola da gamba and harpsichord, in 1995 and it won a Danish 'Grammy' that year. And no wonder. These are marvelous performances by three marvelous musicians -- John Holloway, violin, Jaap ter Linden, viola da gamba, and Lars Ulrik Mortensen, harpsichord. Holloway has recorded much baroque music, including a terrific set of Biber sonatas. For a time ter Linden seemed to appear on every baroque recording that came my way. Mortensen participated in one of my favorite recordings of this past year, a set that contained performances of Bach harpsichord concerti. Holloway, long the concertmaster of Roger Norringston's London Classical Players, has just been named music director of Atlanta's hot baroque ensemble, New Trinity Baroque.

Buxtehude is remembered mostly as a composer of organ and sacred music. He was organist at the main church in Lübeck for almost forty years. The story of how Bach walked to Lübeck to study with Buxtehude is well-known. He wrote very little chamber music, and this disc is one of a series of three that contains the lot. One presumes that Naxos will reissue Vols. 2 & 3 in due time. Op. 1 consists of seven 'sonatas,' which are composed partially in his 'stylus phantasticus' in which each of the instrumentalists, rather as in jazz, is allowed free improvisation for a few measures in turn. Actually, of course, Buxtehude composed those measures, but the effect is one of spontaneous improvisation for each of the players. As Kerala Snyder has it in the New Grove's, "These are sonatas a due, based on virtuoso and integrated writing for the violin and gamba. Although real trio texture sometimes occurs, the continuo line is more often a simplification of the gamba part. The structure of the sonatas is based on an alternation of tempo and texture, but this can take place either by means of tonally closed, independent movements or with sections that flow together; there is no standardization of their number, which ranges from three to 14." Half the sonatas have an ostinato movement in which a pattern is set up in the continuo and followed through to the end. To this listener, the sonatas overall convey a sense of informality, brio, and an almost romantic expression of feeling. It is entirely apt that this CD's instrumentalists mirror that approach in their playing. The result is joyous. One comes away from this music refreshed, invigorated, stimulated. One looks forward the next release, the Op. 2 set, also of seven sonatas.


Warmly recommended.

Scott Morrison

HASH(0x9db06c0c) out of 5 stars Provides a context for J.S. Bach Dec 26 2006
By Jamesian - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is wonderful stuff. You can listen to it with pleasure without concerning yourself with history or musicology at all.

But if you ARE interested in such matters, Buxtehude was not only n influence upon, he was an inspiration to, the incomparable J.S. Bach. It takes nothing away from Bach to say that his genius didn't come from nowhere, it didn't drop onto this planet from Mars.

And when you listen with that thought in mind, you get extra levels of satisfaction from this recording.

HASH(0x9db07060) out of 5 stars A terrific disc Dec 13 2013
By Sid Nuncius - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I am delighted that Naxos have reissued this series. All three volumes are excellent, and Buxtehude's chamber music deserves to be far better known. His organ music is recognised to be of the highest quality (the young Bach famously walked 250 miles to hear Buxtehude play his own music) and while perhaps not quite in that league the chamber music here is extremely good and thoroughly enjoyable. It is full of melody and harmonic invention, is zestful and joyful in places and very beautiful in others.

The musicians are excellent. An ensemble which includes John Holloway, Jaap ter Linden and Lars Ulrich Mortensen ought to be something special and they never disappoint. The obvious delight they take in the music and in playing it together, coupled with an effortless virtuosity means that every movement shines and the discs are a joy from start to finish. The recorded sound (originally from the early 1990s) is very good indeed and the notes perfectly adequate.

This is fine music, beautifully played and I warmly recommend all three disc in the series.

HASH(0x9db07420) out of 5 stars Soothing Sonatas! Feb. 13 2012
By zerosykess - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
The sonatas of Buxtehude (book-stuh-HOO-duh) are very pleasant and gratifying! They soothe like a friendly pet lying at your side warm and loving. Good recording and reverb!

Much different and definitively more appealing than his harpsichord or organ music to me. Get both this and opus 2. Naxos is fine quality!!!

This cd is so soothing, rich, and mellow in tone and flavor. Truly worth spending around $5.00 for in every sense! A couple clicks and it will be sent to your mailbox. Naxos' Buxthehude and Corelli sonatas cd's have changed my listening pleasure. They fill the perfect genre of relaxing talented music WITHOUT the distracting crescendos and decrescendos (the highs and lows) that disrupt your concentration when one minute it is to loud and then the next minute you can't hear it. This music just flows along charming the air like incense.

My cat loves this type of music !! She is truly serene and relaxed....and purrs as if in meditation!

Good Day Friends!

HASH(0x9db073cc) out of 5 stars Succeed the Germany music tradition July 30 2007
By HSIEH CHENG CHUNG - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Buxtehudeut's interesting to me also because of Bach's famuos story, go to listen his music stayed over his holidays. However, when I listenned this CD, it really give me strong impact on music power, it shake me to touch inner mood. Holloway play this, excellent show as his Biber. I find he could catch Germany music faithfully. We should give him more honor from his playing
