Reprint of the edition Leipzig 1795-1798 (3 Baende im Schuber) Justin Heinrich Knecht, an organist in the German town of Biberach, was considered as the most important organ specialist during the Viennese Classical period, even far beyond the borders of his native region. His epoch-making "Complete Organ Method" is offered here in a judiciously commented reprint. 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).
