      Frédéríc Chopin
      24 Préludes op. 28
      Gunther Rost

      Seifert Organ of the Kevelaer Church of the Virgin Mary

      As with all cycles from this age that systematically traverse the circle of fifths, Chopin’s 24 Préludes op. 28 are written in the tradition of J.S. Bach. It is no wonder that this work holds a very special attraction for organists. In the past, Chopin Préludes have often been adapted for organ – and sometimes greatly changed. Gunther Rost takes another path in this recording. He plays the unchanged musical text of the original versions for piano, replicating the diversity of the composer’s dynamic markings by the use of imaginative registrations. The instrument heard on this recording offers possibly the best conditions of all: the Seifert organ in the Church of the Virgin Mary in Kevelaer has over 135 registers, making it the largest romantic German organ in the world.

      With this release, Gunther Rost continues his series of organ transcriptions, which includes a recording of the Goldberg Variations as well as one of six instrumental concertos by Antonio Vivaldi.
