Information: About bundles

A bundle makes it possible to get a better price for a certain set of AEOLUS CDs.

You may have noticed that here on the AEOLUS website certain CDs and SACDs are displayed to be available as part of a "bundle". So what is a bundle? A bundle is a set of several complete AEOLUS CDs. In case you buy a bundle you pay significantly less than you would pay for the single CDs, but you get the exact same CDs, including original packaging and original booklet. 

This way we created bundles e.g. for some of our composer series, e.g. Froberger, Maleingreau, etc. Please find here all bundles on offer.

Please note that these bundles are only available here on the AEOLUS website, not elsewhere.

A “seventeenth-century Art of Fugue” — The seventh volume of the Froberger Edition on AEOLUS is perhaps the craziest: a roller-coaster ride through the world of the fugue, performed with virtuosity and the spirit of adventure. Bob van Asperen plays himself here into an absolute frenzy!

Froberger’s Capriccios show a composer who not only perfectly mastered his métier, but drove his art forward to new heights. Not without reason, the accompanying text (written by the performer) points out many connections to the works of J. S. Bach. With Bob van Asperen, the Edition features an exceptional interpreter who performs these works just as passionately as knowledgeably. Eighteen multi-part Capriccios are to be heard, also including a recently discovered work.

As in all the other volumes of the Edition, an important historical instrument is employed: here it is the large Arp Schnitger organ of the Ludgerikirche in Norden (Eastern Friesland, Germany), which with its numerous stops allows the wealth of polyphony to resound.

For the recording of the Capriccio "XIX" ("Innsbruck") our new carbon organ microphone stand was used in the Ludgerikirche, Norden.
