On Tour in Southern Germany #0601
Michael Barone shares his field recordings of some exceptional historic instruments in spectacular Bavarian Baroque churches, and invites you to join his tour there in May 2006.
ANDREAS SCHRÖDER: Improvisation (1737 Baumeister/Maihingen Cloister, Germany)
ANONYMOUS: Canzona for Two Organs (1766 Riepp/Ottobeuren Monastery, Germany)
C.P.E. BACH: Allegro, 3rd movement, from Organ Sonata Number 3 in F (1785 Holzhey/Klosterkirche Sankt Verena, Rot-an-der-Rot, Germany)
With one exception, these performances feature Andreas Schröder of Karlsruhe, whom we recorded in demonstration of these instruments during an Organ Historical Society-sponaored tour in 1997. More information about these instruments, and many others, can be found on our own PIPEDREAMS European Organ Tour 2006 page, with details of our own travels from April 28—May 11, 2006.
