Buxtehude and his Circle

11 July 2016  Huffington Post
Laurence Vittes

In latest release in the Danish DaCapo label’s seemingly eternal yet always engrossing, comprehensive recordings of their great national composer, Buxtehude is joined by Christian Geist, Nicolaus Bruhns, Franz Tunder and Kaspar Forster in the kind of music that was heard and shared within a musical circle of time, place, friendships, teacher-pupil relationships and even family membership; these composers from Northern German musician families, part of a network all of whom had worked in or migrated to Scandinavia in the course of the 1600s, spoke a common musical language, and when the beauty of their music matches a text that may speak particularly to you, the emotional effect can be quite overwhelming.
