Music for harpsichord from the School of the North of Germany from the centuries XVII and XVIII.Carlos García-Bernalt, Clave. 

In a continue succession of masters and disciples, the program covers four generations of compositor that underpins the tradition of music for harpsichord -interpretative practices and improvisations included- starting from Amsterdam and embeding later on the Northern Germany. From the Sweenlick chromatic fantasy, that with one foot in the contrapuntal academic from the XVI century bursts in the eloquence and rhetorical baroque seeking commotion and persuation, moving to the Hamburgo of the student Scheidemann, with a work where the echos of the virginalists British are still very present. Reincken, who was a disciple, assistant and lecturer of Scheidemann the Catarinenkirche, confronts along with Böhm and Buxtehudela a triad of musicians where a young Johann Sebastian Bach took as a model to start his career. Well know are the trips of Bach to listen to Reincken, as well as his visit to Buxtehude, but also indicating that he was disciple of Böhm during his stay in Lüneburg. Throught Reicken and Böhm, Bach also receives the Italian and French styles as well as an incipient fusion for both. Toccata BWV 912, writter circa 1710, closes a program that contemplates a hundred years of extraordinay and touching harpichord music, following the success of Jan Pierterszoon Sweelinck.
