Another pleasant Prelude and Fugue by Johann Peter Kellner. Since it has no pedal part it can be played on harpsichord as well as on organ. The fugue is one of the better fugues of Johann Peter Kellner. That’s probably because Kellner sticks to a pseudo three voice texture, that in reality forms a largely two voice fugue. And Kellner has no problem with virtuosic two voice writing. The work has not a lot of depth, but is a pleasure to play.

The recording was done with the sampleset, made by Sonus Paradis, of the Transept organ in the Laurenskerk, Rotterdam.

Hw: Praestant 8′, Octaaf 4′, Octaaf 2′

    Good evening,

    First of all, thank you so much for your incredible and brilliant work!
    I was wondering if your beautiful MP3 files were firstly recorded as MIDI files? It is because it may be interesting, for organists owning their own electronical organs (like Johannus, Allen etc…) to play your recordings on their organs at home with their own registrations?
    Very best wishes from Paris

      Thanks for the feedback. Yes, I do record the midi as well. But unfortunately I almost invariably make a mistake when I record a new piece. Most of the recordings on this site are two fragments glued together. I know how to edit wav-files, but I don’t know how to edit midi. It’s a nice idea though. It’s certainly something to strive for: play a piece without mistakes and publish the midi as well.
