Regular price £5.99 Sale

The organ was the instrument of which Bach was the world’s leading exponent and for which he composed some of his very finest music. He devoted his early years to absorbing the influences of his greatest predecessors — most notably Girolamo Frescobaldi (1583–1643) and Dietrich Buxtehude (c.1637–1707) — and fused them with his inexhaustible creative imagination to create a body of work that is without parallel in the history of the ‘king of the instruments’.
