Bach may have written his most beautiful pieces for his favorite instrument, the organ. Holland Baroque passes on these masterpieces to the orchestra.
As rich as the sound of the organo pleno sounded on Bach's Silbermann organs, now oboes, strings, bassoons, and a full continuo group pay tribute to the queen of instruments: the organ. Bach's organ works for baroque orchestra; this is the elaborately jeweled world of the baroque.
Repertoire: BWV 582, 526, 974, 529, 592, 542, 615, 617, 648 in settings by J. and T. Steenbrink
