Informationen

The Johann Patroclus Möller Organ in Borgentreich is one of the few spring chest organs still in use in Germany and the largest baroque organ in Westphalia. Johann Patroclus Möller built this great organ, which was originally housed in the Canon Monastery in Dahlheim. It is entirely representative of the Westphalian organ-building tradition, in which the spring chest technique was especially well developed. After the city of Borgentreich obtained the organ in 1803, the instrument underwent an eventful history with alterations in the prospect and disposition. But despite these changes, the organ has lost nothing of its unique baroque sound right up to the present day. The brilliance and fullness of the full organ combine with the slender baroque solo voices to form a highly varied overall sound, especially audible in the choice of works performed here.
This compilation enables us to have a glimpse into the wide variety of baroque organ literature, with an authentic baroque organ sound as well.

The organist Jörg Kraemer is the regional church musician of the Archdiocese Paderborn and director of the Organ Museum in Borgentreich. He is a lecturer in organ building at the Academy of Music in Detmold.

This instrument dates from about 1730, is designated the largest baroque organ in Westphalia, and is notable for its spring chests--an expensive type of construction very seldom found today. The organ is in critical need of a renovation along historical lines, and this disc is apparently intended to promote one in the near future.

Kraemer\'s program has been designed to display as much as possible of this interesting and valuable 45-stop instrument, which was last worked on by the firm of Paul Ott, Gottingen, in the 1950s. But most of the music is of only marginal interest. The two tedious, run-of-the-mill partitas eat up almost 23 minutes; and except for the Walther and Buxtehude, the remainder is third-rate baroque gebrauchsmusik.

The playing is often elegant and spirited, but also sometimes routine; and Kraemer\'s registrations, while there are plenty of different combinations, could be more interesting. The sound fidelity is excellent and the booklet nicely produced, even if the English translation is abominable. Complete registrations are listed.
