We continue our collaboration with Simone Stella, now with the monumental edition (in six albums) of the complete organ works by Dietrich Buxtehude.
Simone is definitely at home with both this incredible variety of music and the king of the instruments, the organ. His rich choice of colours gives extra value to the just unexceptionable rendition which is also fresh, rhythmic, solar...
The recording is 100% natural, with no additional effect added, nor equalisation. The sound gives the right detail and balance to the instrument without being too dry. In a word: a great collection!
