The Silbermann organ at Crostau has long been considered one of Germany’s most significant monuments of organ building. The combination of the instrument’s crystalline sound with Lucas Pohle’s sensitive organ playing and the historically informed performance expertise of the Dresdner Barockorchester promises to make the present album a real highlight on the classical music market. The organ concertos of the Baroque continue to exert an exceptional degree of fascination even today, not least because the organ is widely seen as the solo instrument par excellence. The clear-cut sounds of the instrument from Gottfried Silbermann’s workshop and the magnificent organ compositions by the organ builder’s contemporaries invite listeners onto an inspiring journey back to the eighteenth century. Joined by the Dresdner Barockorchester, Lucas Pohle demonstrates once more his skill in making musical treasures of the Baroque era come to life — performed on an instrument that has excited listeners with its stunningly rich colours for centuries.
