Featuring the mighty Prelude and Fugue in E minor – a work that disregarded all the trends of the time and displays Bach’s total individuality – and the unique Organ Concerto in D minor, this fourth volume of organ works from Robert Quinney demonstrates how the ritornello structure was central to Bach’s mature style. A selection of chorale-based pieces are also explored including the remarkable twelve-movement Partita on ‘Sei gegrusset, Jesu gutig’. Robert Quinney is Organist of New College, Oxford. In addition to the daily direction of New College’s world-famous choir, his work comprises teaching, lecturing, and examining, as a Tutorial Fellow of the college and an Associate Professor at the University Faculty of Music. He maintains a parallel career as a solo organist, and is a prolific recording artist and made debuts at the Royal Festival Hall and BBC Proms in 2017. “The disc a pure unfolding of pleasure.” (The Sunday Times)

BBC Music Magazine

Quinney nails BWV 548’s spaciousness and architectural inventiveness, but sometimes favours a certain didacticism over emotional intensity…Best of all though is an imaginatively registered, compellingly coherent accounts of the 12-movement Partita on Sei gegrüsset, which follows the ordering of the Neue Bah-Ausgabe, and makes a supremely powerful case for it. ****

Choir & Organ

Quinney’s playing is scrupulously neat and tidy, bristling with a momentum heightened by his taste for added ornamentation.

Gramophone Magazine

One of the most convincing, invigorating and subtle accounts of [the Variations BWV768] on record. Marvel at the balance of voices, and the resulting luminosity of passing notes and dissonance. This is another exceptional Bach recital – and, crucially, for all-comers.
