Johann Ludwig Krebs: Complete Organ Works

Johann Ludwig Krebs: Complete Organ Works
Johann Ludwig Krebs (1713-1780) is considered, beyond Bach’s own sons, as the most significant of J. S. Bach’s pupils. Krebs developed in his works an individual style, combining Baroque elements with the “new” sensitive and gallant style in a way in which no other did and exploited the tonal possibilities of the organ.

In this series on the Motette label, Beatrice-Maria and Gerhard Weinberger play in very large south German abbeys and churches where the famous large organs by Riepp, Gabler and Holzhay were built to exploit the rising gallant style.
