Johann Pachelbel: Organ Works

Books | Organ

Publisher: Dover Publications
Composer: Johann Pachelbel
Format: Sheet Music | Instrumental Album
Pachelbel was one of the great organ masters of the generation before J.S. Bach. Unsurprisingly, interest in his music has remained constant and today he is widely considered one of the greatest and, indisputably, one of the most productive composers of all time. This new collection assembles a rich selection of the composer's organ works, including 72 chorale settings and 48 nonliturgical works, among them toccatas, fugues, preludes, ricercares and fantasias. Reprinted here from the authoritative Breitkopf and Hartel edition, edited by Max Seiffert, these venerable compositions will be welcomed by organists at every level of accomplishment. Today's keyboard artist should note that many of these works do not require a pedal and can be played on the piano or harpsichord as well as the organ.

        Intéressant et bien fait, mais c'est imprimé un peu petit.

        A must for any organist. There is a wide variety of works although they look taxing they are quite simple to play. Good Value.
        Tom Honeyman - (Barnard Castle)
        Pachelbel’s complete organ works exhibit some of the finest writing for organ that existed before the rise of J.S. Bach. His works are notated here on two staves, some requiring the use of pedals and others playable without. Most of the music contained in the collection is of moderate, but not advanced difficulty, and all should be quickly manageable for the intermediate organist. The chorales are probably the easiest of the pieces to play, Pachelbel’s two interpretations of “Ach Herr mich armen Sunder” being particularly pleasing, but also attractive are the fugues which, though sophisticated, are all reasonably short and do not require the virtuosity of Bach: they will serve as pleasing examples of the form for those not yet ready to undertake the larger, later compositions of the Master. (The reader should note that this book does not contain the so-called “Canon in D”, which was written for other instrumentation.)
