Info for J.S. Bach: Organ Works
Johann Sebastian Bach is indisputably the master of the organ repertoire. From the renowned Toccata and Fugue in D minor to the apocalyptic Passacaglia, this album collects the greatest works composed for the king of the instruments by the genius of Eisenach.
Organist Simone Stella is a very well known performer of the integrale organ and harpsichord repertoire by Buxtehude (10 discs), Böhm (4), Reincken (3), Walther (12), Froberger (16). His Bach reveals a lot of qualities: great technic control, fluid and modern performance, rich of energy and sense of rhythm.
Simone Stella, organ
Born in Florence in 1981, Simone Stella is a pupil of harpsichordist Francesco Cera. He also studied organ with Mariella Mochi and Alessandro Albenga and organ improvisation with Fausto Caporali and Stefano Rattini. Mr. Stella has attended many courses and seminars held by internationally acclaimed artists, including Ton Koopman, Matteo Imbruno, Luigi Ferdinando Tagliavini, Luca Scandali, Giancarlo Parodi, Stefano Innocenti, Klemens Schnorr, Ludger Lohmann, Michel Bouvard, Monika Henking, and Guy Bovet.
Simone Stella is winner of the 2nd and 3rd “A. Esposito” Youth Organ Competitions held in Lucca (2004-05), and the 1st “Agati-Tronci” International Organ Competition held in Pistoia (2008).
He performs, especially as a soloist, in Italy, Spain, Germany, The Netherlands, Denmark and United States. His repertoire includes harpsichord and organ music from every historical era up to and including the present day. Particularly interesting is his live performance (2009-10) of the complete organ works by Dieterich Buxtehude in the historical Church of Orsanmichele in Florence, where he was titular organist.
He has recorded the First Book of Suites de pièces by Georg Friderich Handel exclusively for OnClassical, and the Complete Harpsichord and Organ Works by Dietrich Buxtehude, George Boehm, Adam Reincken, Johann Gottfried Walther (soon to be released); this grand project is also under the aegis of international renowned label Brilliant Classics which actively supports it and prints the album-version.
This album contains no booklet.
