García Banegas, Cristina

The Johan Niclas Cahman instrument at Lövstabruk Church, 130 km north of Stockholm, is one of the organ world’s best-kept secrets. Footprint is proud to release this recording from the multi prize-winning organist Christina García Banegas, who plays works by Johann Sebastian Bach on this magnificent instrument organ built in 1728, just as the composer reached the peak of his powers. Banega’s album presents a fulsome and revealing snapshot of Bach the organist-composer, from the gravitas of his Prelude and Fugue in F Minor BWV 534 with its stern five-voice fugue, to the touching simplicity of his strophic variations on Lutheran chorale tunes BWV 776. We also hear the fourth of Bach’s Trio Sonatas- works of which the composer’s first biographer Forkel claimed ‘it is impossible to say enough of their beauty,’- and unfathomably inventive Ricercar a 3 BWV 1079/2, from which the album takes its name.
