During his lifetime, it was said of Andreas Kneller (1649-1724), active as organist in Hanover and Hamburg, that this organist Gould not be accepted without reservation, since he departed from all established and recognized rules of music. Unfortunately, only few of Kneller's unconventional and undoubtedly numerous works have come down to us today. The first editions prepared by Klaus Beckmann are thus all the more significant. The ideal situation would be one involving creative co-operation between soloist and ensemble which I imagine one could not really expect in the context of traditional performance. Such considerations led me to decide that I would treat the task before me somewhat ironically ('concerto galante') with a certain amount of distance. Hence the untypical (and unpractical) ensemble combination the allusion to folk dance which in its time was fashionable in Western Europe sound-jokes and so on. Today as a foot-note I might add that since 1972 I have in fact written a number of concertante pieces. (Marek Kopelent).

    I didn’t know much about this organist/composer so I was taking a chance on this book. I must say I am impressed by the Chorale Preludes. And while they aren’t of the high quality of a Händel, or Bach, they are great pieces for practicing one...

    ’s pedal technique and playing Chorale Preludes. I would overall recommend this little book.
