Product Description

JOHANN LUDWIG KREBS holds the distinction of being among the more talented of J. S. Bach’s pupils and was regarded in his lifetime both as an extraordinary organist and a sensational composer, especially for the organ. In this distinguished series of recordings, organist Felix Friedrich plays organs by builders who were known and admired by Krebs: Gottfried Silbermann and Tobias Heinrich Gottfried Trost, and in volumes 9 and 10, the 1746 Hildebrandt at Naumburg and the Schramm at Wechselburg. The composer has even a closer connection to some of the organs heard, all of which are beautifully recorded. Rarely heard by western ears in this century, the reunification of Germany a decade ago has made these organs available to hear and record.

With 2 manuals and 32 registers, it is the third largest of the remaining Silbermann organs. The Fantasia in C is for organ and traverse flute is played here by Johanna Baumgärtel.
